Selfishly Entitled

The author's voice was soothing. But the story! She wanted to do whatever the hell she wanted, and the rest of the world get over it because she admitted wrong doing. But she felt hopelessly betrayed if she was hurt by anyone. Extreme hypocrisy! I have a cheating problem so I'll just cheat no matter who I hurt until I can't deal with it anymore. But Lucy, if you have a drinking problem, it's yours alone because you lied to me, it's not my fault, I have no role in it, I don't feel like dealing with your recovery so I'm out. Just WOW! Brilliantly told though. Could have concluded with some what happened tos: mom, dad, Lucy, Emma, some friends, etc., but then again, like the author's life, it's all about her.

Empathy

If you don't already understand it, Ariel Levy will teach you the difference between empathy and sympathy. At first, you feel bad for her, and then you join her in her emotion and realize that is what she wants you to do. She wants you to share her journey and her growth, the happy, sad, and the process of hitting rock bottom and truly feeling the pain but slowly recognizing the power within you to continue. Don't feel bad for her, empathize! Also, she is narrating her own story which adds to the impact of the book.
