Life happens to all of us - for better and for worse. Modern attitudes can often lead us to believe that life is all about success and pleasure, and being upbeat and high-achieving. They suggest that everyone is capable of everything, with no obstacle being too great to conquer. This message leaves little room for our humanness, vulnerability and imperfections. In addition, for those trying to cope with illness, addiction, life disruptions or relationship problems, a whole new set of life-impacting changes and demands are raised. We bring into this moment a condensed version of all our yesterdays, and we live out our beliefs about ourselves in a variety of ways every day. Paying attention to your life and making sense of what might have seemed senseless is one way of shifting from getting through your life to getting involved with it. This book is written by an experienced clinical psychologist who aims to create an interest in people about themselves by providing a straightforward, uncomplicated and totally accessible book. It looks to combine the curious nature of being human with an awareness of how we can approach life situations and difficulties in a mindful and thoughtful manner. A key aspect of this book, and what makes it so readable and different, is that it is realistic and human, serious and funny, quirky and direct. It lays out the information and then gives you the choice. It's for anyone - men, women, the well, the ill, parents, professionals or anyone who makes decisions not only about their lives but about those of others. Essentially, it's for everyone, especially for those who would never even consider reading something like this.
