Sugar is the once anonymous online columnist at The Rumpus and now revealed as Cheryl Strayed. This sweet book is filled with humour, insight, compassion and absolute raw honesty - a friend when you need one. In 2015 Dear Sugar Radio was started and it’s so amazing to hear Cheryl’s voice discuss what readers have written to them.
Sugar says …
“Nobody will protect you from suffering.”
“Every one last one of us can do better than give up.”
“Be brave enough to break your own heart.”
And one final quote for you …
“Trusting yourself means living out what you already know to be true.”
