It's often easier to have other people solve the problems in your life instead of face them yourself. But sometimes you have to take on and overcome adversities by examining your life and making the necessary changes to improve it. I know first hand how difficult it can be to face your demons without your loved ones, peers, or even counselors to reassure your every step. A year and half ago, I lost my spouse to drug addiction.

I'm now a stronger person for my efforts. My blog offers tips on how to use self-help to beat your demons.
