Hi there! Welcome to Blind Spots and Baggage.
Nobody escapes from having blind spots and baggage about certain things. Pain and disappointment can contribute more than their fair share. But how do you get beyond all that to live the life you're meant to live as the person you were born to be?
Well, there was a young man who asked that same question. His question turned into a real-life book that was picked up and made into a movie.
Have you ever seen the film, 'Antwone Fisher'?
It's based on a true story about a young man who suffered a lot as a kid. Understandably, he hurts emotionally, and he hurts himself and others as a result.
Mr. Fisher is a former foster youth who was treated unfairly and felt abandoned by almost everyone who should have stood by him.
He was hurt, fed up and angry. He hid his intelligence, ambition and talent behind his rage and lashed out at others or withdrew altogether to feel safe. Jump up to the video icon and watch two clips from 'Antwone Fisher'.
Tell us what you thought when you've finished.
