How To Become A Survivor

Joseph Fagarazzi Author Interview

Escaping My Demons shares with readers the abuse you suffered at the hands of the people that were supposed to love you unconditionally. How hard was it to put this story out in the world for people to read?

Writing my memoir and telling my story was hard to do. I relived it over and over again and it constantly took me back to where I had always wanted to escape from. Whilst writing the book, especially during the night in bed brought back the nightmares. Whilst sleeping my wife often wakes me telling me I was fighting in my dream.

I am a different man these days and content with my life

What were some goals you set for yourself as a writer in this book?

My goal has always been for my story to be told and to help others that don’t have the know-how to help themselves.

Telling others not to keep dwelling in the past, but instead learn from the past and keep moving forward. I found that changing my mindset gave me a new scope in life. I have always said that nothing changes if nothing changes!

What advice do you have for victims of abuse to let them know that there is hope for a better future?

My book is aimed at helping victims of abuse of similar circumstances. It was written specifically to help them how to start believing in themselves and move on with their lives with the hope that eventually they will stop listening to that little voice in their head that is telling them they are worthless. My book is a survival kit for all victims on how to become a survivor.

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

What it was like to walk in my shoes as a victim and most importantly make “biased parents” realise and recognise the injustice, hurt and pain they are causing their child to bear.

Throughout this book we learn about the sufferance of a baby boy, unwanted by his teenage parents.
This boy grew up with an aggressive and womanising father that constantly reminded him that he was a mistake that ruined his father’s life.
While been beaten and mentally abused, all he craved from his parents was love but received nothing but humiliation and sufferance from his father. This caused detrimental trauma to the young boy, and he grew up believing that he would not achieve anything in life.
I was this little boy, and this is my story.

Escaping My Demons

In Escaping My Demons, author Joseph Fagarazzi provides a poignant and deeply moving account of his life, marked by emotional scars from his past, particularly a turbulent relationship with his biological father. Born during a challenging period in his parents’ lives, he bore the burden of their resentment, grappling with a constant feeling that he had disrupted their existence.

Fagarazzi courageously delves into the trials and tribulations of his life’s journey, which was marred by severe physical and emotional maltreatment from his parents. Despite his tumultuous upbringing and his father’s wayward conduct, he endeavored to construct a relationship with the father he had been deprived of. Unfortunately, just as he began to reconcile his past, a new series of bitter disappointments unfolded, further intensifying the cycle of paternal hate he endured.

Joseph Fagarazzi’s memoir encapsulates the profound anguish and adversity he faced at the hands of his biological family. He candidly recounts his life’s darkest chapters, striving to liberate himself from the trauma inflicted by his father. This work candidly explores the raw intensity of his experiences, conveying the depth of physical and emotional torment he bore, his struggles and triumphs, as well as the severe cruelty of his father.

The narrative is profoundly affecting as it unveils the severity of Joseph’s suffering at the hands of those who should have offered him unconditional love and support. The weighty paradox of a child being the victim of such cruelty from his family rather than external forces is deeply unsettling. However, Fagarazzi’s courage in sharing these deeply personal and traumatic experiences is commendable. His narration radiates palpable pain, desire, and a sense of the absurdity of his father’s actions.

This memoir, while it might be a challenging read due to its intense emotional content, is incredibly compelling. Escaping My Demons offers readers a riveting and heartfelt perspective on resilience and the power of personal liberation.
