Author and luxury real estate mogul Austin Bergman publishes his memoir that highlights the freedom to live authentically
New York, New York – (Newsfile Corp. – October 22, 2021) – Author and luxury real estate mogul Austin Bergman has announced the upcoming publication of his memoir, YOU: The true state of life, a raw glimpse into the journey of someone who went from underground to discovering joy as a made-over person. Bergman hopes his story will inspire others to let go of their own limitations and choose the freedom to live authentically.
YOU: The Real State of Life book cover
YOU recounts Bergman’s seemingly idyllic white picket life. He had a beautiful wife, children, and a successful business. But after seventeen years, he finally acted on something he had known all along: Austin Bergman is gay. As he grew older, he realized that he could not continue to sentence himself to “a prison cell for life,” a toxic cycle that included verbal, physical and substance addiction. Instead, he ripped off the bandage and made the difficult decision to put himself first and seek the joy of coming out of the trials of the past like the person he had secretly been all through.
Bergman’s story will appeal to fans of true stories told in the author’s signature style. Sometimes both poignant and heartbreaking, YOU is an unfiltered look at the unique horror of living unseen, unvalidated and erased, especially by yourself.
Bergman’s work is an uplifting read that will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with personal demons. From the LGBTQIA + community to those who feel trapped in stagnant careers, YOU perfectly captures the suffocating fear of living in a false reality that no one on the outside can see. YOU gives the public permission to recognize that there is more to happiness than wealth, family or the pitfalls of a so-called ordinary life.
When asked to comment on his work, Bergman simply said, “Once you remove the mask and find YOURSELF, your possibilities are endless.” At a time when so many people feel lost in the reshuffle of the modern world, YOU contains the wisdom of someone who has already traveled a long way to find his way back to himself.
YOU: The true state of life is available for purchase on Amazon, TheRealStateOfLife.com and wherever books are sold.
