When I recently finished the book Carrying All The Wounds In My Smile by Monica Pana, I knew I wanted to have her over to visit to chat about it more. This book deals with the subject of adolescence – as told by teenage Monica.
You can read my Goodreads review for my thoughts about it. Thankfully, Monica accepted the invite to guest post here and below are her intriguing thoughts in response to a question she is often asked:Why did she write Carrying All the Wounds In My Smile?
Escape from the labyrinth of my mind
“Why would you write that book?”
“Why did you write this book?”
Many people have asked me what is the reason for my book “Carrying all the wounds in my smile” and below I want to build a pertinent answer.
First of all, I want to gather together a bunch of ideas and combine them, to stick and put in order thoughts and emotions that have escaped from control.
My nature is to be kind of scattered, but now I wanted to offer a logic, a way of escaping from the labyrinth of my mind and of your children.
It may seem odd, but teenagers nowadays feel a lot and are much more aware. Having the world open, they are looking. They are looking for happiness differently than their parents and feel life differently. Generations differ, the world has changed, and people are changing their lives more often.
I present in the book information that you feel. Everyone feels something, no matter how intense. After all, we are all humans, and our feelings are similar.
Secondly, throughout the book, I’m looking to provide answers for parents. There are many who have problems with their adolescents and, by what I write, I want to help them to understand some aspects of life, whether the reader is an adult or a teenager.
In addition, I try to keep people attentive to people, to make them understand that they are capable of more and to take care of each other.
