Put It On Your Shelf

Author Interview
Misty Long Author Interview

My Fight For Survival is an impassioned memoir that takes readers through your personal struggles to inspire them and show them that anything is possible. Why was this an important book for you to write?

I find it is Important to let other people know there are other people who understand what you may be going through and to reach out. I find it is important for people to know you can make it through your struggles.

I appreciated how candid you were when telling your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

The hardest thing for me to go back to are the sexual assaults I went through.

What were some ideas that were important for you to explore in this book?

Some important ideas were the way I handled some situations in my life and how to get out of them.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

There is a very important rule I live by that was once told to me by a very wise person. The things that are controlling your feelings because they are bad and you can’t do anything about it, are things that absolutely everyone experiences. If it’s one thing I remember which helps me a lot is to “put it on your shelf”. It’s an imaginary shelf that you set your problems on and leave them there until you can pull it off that shelf and something can be done. No point in worrying and carrying around sad and horrible things when you can’t currently do anything about it. You, and you alone will know when it’s time to pull that off your shelf and handle it then.

Surviving life is a challenge, but when you throw more your way than you can take. That’s just whole other ball game…

I yearned to be a therapist of some sort to help those who experience the struggles in life I have. I want to reach people on a personal level. I want to help people understand, they can get through anything.
