Maybe You Should Talk To Someone
Do you ever feel stressed, worried, miserable or unfulfilled yet put on a happy face and pretend everything’s fine? If so, you are not alone. Stress, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem are very common. In one way or another, it seems almost everyone is struggling. We are all caught in a hidden psychological trap: the more we strive for happiness the more we suffer in the long term.
1. Written by Psychotherapist Lori Gottlieb who was used to being the therapist in the room until the script was flipped and she went through a crisis that led to her being the recipient of therapy.
2. Instead of being written in the typical fashion of a self help book, it’s written as a memoir.
3. She shares her experience as both the therapist and the client, with dashes of humour in between to lighten things up.
Why we chose it ?
NOW BEING DEVELOPED AS A TV SERIES WITH EVA LONGORIA AND ABC! "Wise, warm, smart, and funny. You must read this book." Susan Cain, The New York Times bestselling author of Quiet Psychotherapist and The New York Times bestselling author Lori Gottlieb, takes us behind the scenes of her practice where her patients are looking for answers and so is she. Through this book, with compassion and humor, she invites us into her world as both therapist and patient, examining the truths and fictions we tell ourselves and others as we teeter on the tightrope that is life. As Gottlieb explores the inner chambers of her patients' lives – a young newlywed diagnosed with a terminal illness, a senior citizen threatening to end her life on her birthday if nothing gets better, and a twenty-something who can't stop hooking up with the wrong guys – she finds that the questions they are struggling with are the very ones she is now bringing to Wendell, her own therapist. 'Maybe You Should Talk to Someone' offers a rare insight into a profession that is conventionally bound with rules and secrecy. It is also the story of an incredible relationship between two therapists, and a funny and illuminating account of our own mysterious inner lives, as well as our power to transform them.
