The introductory poem sets the stage:
After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a
And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning and company doesn't mean security,
And you learn that kisses aren't contracts and presents aren't promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open, with the
grace of an adult, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today becaus tomorrow's ground is too uncertain
for plans.
After a while a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone
to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure ... that you really are strong,
And that you really do have a worth. Anonymous

Chapters topics include not putting one's life on hold, assertiveness, not getting bitter but better, etc. Book is uplifting and positive.

It's Dr. Sonya Friedman's advice to women to pick themselves up, dust themselves off, and move on. She's smart, has a common sense approach to life, and has heard all the excuses we've used in order to believe "it wasn't our fault."
