In Care Package, Sylvester McNutt III digs deep through personal stories to uncover pain, forgiveness, abuse, and moments of fear. Throughout the chapters, Sylvester tackles some of life’s biggest hurdles: shame, guilt, letting go, codependency, lack of purpose, people-pleasing, setting boundaries, and negative self-talk.

Sylvester guides readers down the path of healing –  the scary journey that is tough to do alone, but with Care Package, you are never alone. Sylvester’s mission with this book is to inspire you to heal, to release, to vibrate higher, and to practice self-care every single day. This book is a source of comfort and confirmation of your choice to care for yourself and not feel guilty for it.

It’s important to take care of yourself and to align yourself to the life you aspire to have. Because you deserve just that.

I appreciated the strategies and quotes given throughout the chapters such as “how to practice setting boundaries” and “forgiveness means”, because it provided me with tools to continue developing a healthy relationship with myself and others.
