Publisher's Summary

D.J. Burr is a man on a mission; successful business owner, highly respected psychotherapist, and survivor of a dysfunctional life. At a young age, all he wanted was to be loved, but instead found himself targeted by a sexual predator. D.J. slipped into a life of addiction and clawed his way through broken relationships and seedy sex clubs - looking for love in all the wrong places. D.J. will take listeners on a roller coaster of emotions as he details his search for grace and love.

    "Interesting Journey - Very Insightful"

    D. J. Burr's story is a very interesting journey. It's hard to imagine how much strength and courage it takes to survive a dysfunctional childhood, child molestation, and being gay......

    The narrator, Royal Jaye, really captures the essence of the various tramatic moments. It's almost like bring a fly on the wall of each experience.

    Definitely will be recommending it to friends. It's a great story and performance.

Very insightful author explains his background and how far he's come with hope dignity and respect The author explains his life and how is bringing affected his adulthood and addiction very well .. d j. u are amazing. ..
