It is hard to believe that after three years of hard work writing my story, along with Moe Ross, we are finally here.
As some of you may know, I began the journey of writing my story in 2013 as a way of sharing what I have learned about me while traveling on the tour with my former husband, Paul Casey. This story is not about Paul. It’s about what I learned within the context of our relationship. When I began telling the story for this memoir, I had no idea that the writing would help me close the gap between who I was and who I really am. I became deeply aware that my pain could serve a purpose to help others.
Many people have termed my sharing as a brave and courageous act. At first, it was. I had to break through the veils of my public self who had created a dishonest image. As the writing of my story unfolded, the power of sharing our personal stories became more real. I realized how many people, by opening the doors to their recovery from their false self, helped me to be who I am today. I began to feel that the sharing of our stories is a responsible act. I believe it is through the sharing of our stories that I have best learned.
Within the pages, you will find genuinely sacred moments I shared with Paul on the Tour. I share my most favorite moments and some that made me want to crawl under a rock and fade away. You will also read how I crept out of the darkest of days and learned to embrace my truth in order to live a meaningful life.
My hope is that if there is anyone out there dealing with severe insecurities, perfectionism, addiction to control, and loss of identity, this book will find them and my story will help them feel less alone and offer a way through the darkness.
