Hello!

I want to share about a book by Andrew Matthews, an Australian author – it’s called Being Happy! A Handbook to greater confidence and security. My friend recommended it to me when I was in my 20s and feeling depressed and confused about friendships, dating and happiness. It’s such an engaging book with simple, straightforward text and amusing cartoons. But the content is serious and suitable for anyone of any age. Some wisdom from Andrew is “Listen to those whose lives are working”, “you deserve love and respect just because you are you” and “I had enough misery, heartache and loneliness and I DECIDED to change things.”
I found it an inspring read and still refer to it now and then for little tips of wisdom. I highly recommend to you.
