Just a little over a year ago, Bobby put out his memoir 'Bare Bones: I'm Not Lonely If You're Reading This Book.' It quickly became the #1 New York Times Bestseller with a lot of our listeners outpouring of support.
One listener in particular, Sarah Wyland, read Bobby's book just recently. And she wrote a blog about how much the book inspired her.
"I identified with Bobby. I grew up in rural Virginia in a town people don’t leave. I had a much better family situation when compared to Bobby, but my parents divorced when I was in third grade which came with its own set of challenges. Money was tight, opportunities were limited, and college was a thing other people did, but I always knew I wanted out. I knew there was a big world waiting for me just across the county line." - An excerpt from her blog.
The blog talks about her story, how she connects with the show on a deeper level and how Bobby's book helped inspire her to keep following her dreams. Check out the full blog here.
