She was not satisfied with the "physical" side of her life and explains how events in her life caused her to see herself as a person "with whom" she was not pleased. It wasn't until she became aware of God's "Law of Love," that the she began to see her "spiritual" side. The author describes her spiritual change which came as a result of her continuing "to satisfy my hunger for truth." The 2 of Me is a roadmap for readers who are going down a life path that they want to change.
