About this title

Synopsis:

Shhhh, Listen! Do you hear that vacuum sucking people down? A severely depressed 16-year-old youth broadcasts his suicide on a webcam via the internet, in front of hundreds of horrified onlookers; a third grade elementary school child shoots a parent in cold blood; a public servant is arrested for lewd conduct and solicitation of a gay sexual encounter in a public restroom; a sports legend is found dead of an overdose; political and entertainment celebrities, as well as private citizens are booking themselves into rehab centers in record numbers. Despite a collapsing economy, the neon signs of gambling casinos and parlors still glare brightly over the boulevards across our nation as people, desperate for a ‘kiss from Lady Luck,’ gamble away their paychecks. Each one is another life once full of promise, hopes, and dreams falling into another voracious and soul-devouring emotional black hole. Have you ever said any of the following to yourself? No one loves me. I can do it all myself. I’m all alone. I can’t do it all by myself. I hate him. I am so frustrated. I hate myself. I wouldn’t even be missed. I want to hide. Somebody help me. I’m trapped. If people knew who I really was. No one appreciates me. People are so incompetent. I’m disgusting. I never do anything right. I need a drink NOW. I want to run away. No one understands. It’s useless. People are so stupid. I could hit someone. I’m stupid. I just have to have it. I don’t trust anyone. If they’d only notice me. I don’t trust myself. Don’t bother me. I’m worthless. I’m ugly. I can’t stand the pain. I deserve to be unhappy. I want to die. I’m ruined if they find out. I’m so exhausted. I just want to sleep forever. I don’t feel anything. I’m invisible. No one knows my pain. I’ll never measure up. If you said yes to any of these, then you need to read this book. Emotional black holes like these impact the lives of at least five people you know. Individuals seek to fill their emotional emptiness with everything from drug abuse to an excess of even so called good things, like work, exercise, and yes, even religion. These temporary distractions do not avoid the devastation that awaits us while we continue to be drawn even faster into deeper emotional black holes. There is hope. There is a way to heal the wounds. Emotional Black Holes is one author’s very personal experience and invitation to step, as he did, out of the emotional blackness of deep and painful holes that snuff out life and move back towards the light and a life of fulfillment, love, and joy that we were all meant to experience. Step through the doors of these pages, and you too will share in the author’s journey as you also discover the TRUE way to escape from your emotional black holes.
