My Year Of Living Vulnerably by Rick Morton – Our Review
I have always lamented not yet getting to read, My Year of Dirt by Rick Morton as it sits atop my to read list. Having now just finished his new memoir, My Year of Living Vulnerably I am determined to read it immediately.
After being diagnosed with Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in early 2019 due to childhood trauma and dysfunction, Rick’s latest book charters his quest to rediscover love, to in a sense discover who he truly was and what it means to love and be loved in the midst of it all.
Brilliantly divided up in fascinating chapters, this book is unexpectedly funny as Rick bares all. It is deeply personal, and profoundly authentic which is a truly welcome and refreshing read.
Together we journey through Rick’s journey to discover what love is, how we see love, the forms it takes, and the ways love can differ from one person to the next. Over arching it all, is the realisation that to be human is to require love, and how that is experienced is as varied as we are individuals.
This book is everything, absolutely brilliant and unputdownable, perfect to discuss with your friends. This book is perfect for men today who are wrestling with the limitations of societal gender norms and expectations.
