Trying to Grasp the Golden Ring
About the Book
When Dr. Gayles Evans set out to research how a distorted vision created the violent obsession of those who were bullying others, she discovered that this mental abuse changed many lives. Numerous victims of bullying were stalked, and some who were abused committed suicide. In Distorted Vision, she provides glimpses into her own life and upbringing as she explores the topic of how people make a variety of counterproductive choices for living as a result of distorted perceptions of reality. The research into that topic led Evans into other areas of how having a distorted vision affects society, such as alcoholism, drug abuse, discrimination, sexual harassment, violence against women, and bullying. Distorted Vision discusses how no one is physically or mentally perfect. Everyone must come to grips with their own demons and fantasies and accept them before a clear lens can be formed. All must find their own ways into the light and clear their own paths to develop a defined vision of life.
