“I never went to baking school, so I never learned how to sugar coat things.”... I’m the friend you come to for in-your-face, pull-no-punches advice that you need to hear. I’m not a self-help guru nor am I a motivational speaker. I’m simply someone who see’s Life, Death, Relationships, Friendships, Religion, Work and everything else in a unique way. Sometimes I show you a perspective you’ve never considered before, and sometimes I simply push you to act on something you already knew. I see the strength you have inside and I will do everything I can to make sure you use it. I have never met anyone like me or even similar to me. I've never met anyone who does things the way I do or thinks of things the way I do. In short, when it comes to the idiotic part of the human race, I just won't play. The drama, the stress, the bullshit, the games, the cheating, the lying, the manipulating, the violence and all the other warped crap the human race does, are all things that either I've never done or I won't let myself do. I never do or say anything I later regret. Regretful actions are normally the result of uncontrolled emotions or giving into an impulse without thought of the consequences. I have emotions, deep emotions, but they are under my control. I have built what has been affectionately referred to as "Patrick's World", which is basically my custom-made life. There are specifics I could mention, but suffice it to say my life is exactly how I want it to be. Good things in, bad things out. Not because I'm rich or privileged, actually far from it. It is simply because I decided how I wanted myself and my life to be, and made them that way. I never followed anyone else's example or fell into any group, everything I do or think is exactly how I want it to be. All you get from me is honest, blunt and straightforward examples and advice. What you do with them will be up to you. I am known amongst my friends for the quotes I make up and I have an entire chapter dedicated to them. Here are a few.... Enjoy!... “You have to walk the walk. In other words, don’t tell your friends to be strong if you are weak. Don’t demand straight answers if you beat around the bush. Don’t tell your friend to dump her douche bag when you have one at home. Don’t bitch about people not being honest with you if you lie whenever it suits you. Don’t bitch about guys stringing you along if you do the exact same thing to guys interested in you. And most important, don’t try to justify being a hypocrite, saying that when YOU do those things, it’s somehow “different”.” ... “Toddlers learn fairly quickly that a square peg fits in a square hole, and a round peg fits in a round hole. So why is it most adults spend their dating lives trying to fit a square peg into a round hole? And then bitch at the round hole for not being more square?”... “Jealousy/Insecurity is like cancer. If you ignore it, cater to it and do nothing to stop it, it will grow, get much worse, and eventually kill whatever it has infected.”... “The logic of getting back together with an ex, is about the same as leaving spoiled milk in your refrigerator, because you think it might be better tomorrow.”... There are lots more where those came from. Thank you for considering purchasing my book. Whether it changes your life, or is just a good read, I promise you will not be bored. :-)
