Imperfect Truth(89)

By: Ava Harrison

Placing my finger on the keyboard, I start. My fingers are ready to type, taking on a mind of their own. My life once an untold story, now will forever be preserved on paper.

I realize now the most liberating moment, is the moment you finally let go.

Imperfect Truth

By Ava Harrison

Dedicated to the ones who broke me.

Without you, I would never have had the strength to rebuild.



Adjective: emotionally detached.

The Beginning...


This book has been a journey very near to my heart. Sometimes in life you go through a rough time, self-medicating is never the answer. If you are struggling, please consider speaking to a professional. Thank you to my Dr. S. You helped me find myself and I will forever be thankful.

First and foremost I want to thank my family. I have the most wonderful, untraditional family in the world...and I love you all. Thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself. Thank you for the endless encouragement and the positive words. Thank you to my husband for sparking a story within me. I will never forget the day we sat on the couch, and you told me to write it. I love you, baby.

Thank you to all the amazing indie companies that helped mold my words.
