12 Rules for Life

12 Rules for Life might be the book for you if you are feeling lost, empty, frustrated with life or have nihilistic beliefs. If you feel rejected by society and allow the people around you impact your decisions than this is the book for you. This book contributed to my personal growth and has helped me become more aware that my voice matters and that I should feel more confident with what I have to say.
