Description

That’s enough for me - why did I torture myself by comparing myself to someone else? If twenty-year-old me met me today, she would cry with joy. And that’s enough for me."

But if she's so hopeless, why can she always summon a desire for her favourite street food, the hot, spicy rice cake, tteokbokki? Is this just what life is like? Nonetheless, I am grateful to the author for so bravely, generously and candidly sharing her experiences through this book. May she, and everyone else, find their light within the darkness, their own reasons for living and happiness, even if it's as simple as a plate of tteokbokki.) Buku ini adalah kelanjutan dari buku sebelumnya dengan judul yang sama. Isi buku adalah percakapan konsultasi antara Baek See Hee (penulis) dengan psikiaternya. Format yang dipakai di buku kedua ini juga sama dengan buku sebelumnya yaitu dengan bentuk percakapan. Sesekali diselingi essay singkat untuk memulai b Having personally suffered from mental health issues myself, I was hopeful for this book. However, I found the writing disappointing, and the author immature, infuriating and insufferable. Some examples:

I don't read a lot of self-help books–I can't remember any apart from Loveability by Robert Holden, but I didn't even finish reading the book completely–so I was quite unsure what to expect from reading this. I had wanted to love this book, and that is exactly how it ended to be—and perhaps I love it more than I had hoped.

Melalui buku ini, mengingatkan bahwa proses penerimaan itu penting untuk selalu dilakukan dan melalui usaha self talk yang penulis tuangkan dalam dialog juga patut dicontoh saat diri ingin melihat suatu masalah atau keadaan dengan lebih luas lagi. Oiya, aku suka dengan humor sederhana yang ada di buku ini. Misalnya: "Terima kasih. Satu hal lagi, (Terus bicara walau aku bilang sudah tidak ada lagi yang bisa kukatakan.)" Sungguh jadi warna sendiri ketika membacanya. This is all about Baek’s mental health, which was timed perfectly with a lil blip of my own. Baek suffers from depression, but specifically persistent mild depression. As someone who feels simply ✨hollow✨ rather than having, say, violent feelings and suicidal desire, this book absolutely got it. Baek Sehee is a successful young social media director at a publishing house when she begins seeing a psychiatrist about her - what to call it? - depression? She feels persistently low, anxious, endlessly self-doubting, but also highly judgmental of others. She hides her feelings well at work and with friends, performing the calmness her lifestyle demands. The effort is exhausting, overwhelming, and keeps her from forming deep relationships. This can't be normal. But if she's so hopeless, why can she always summon a desire for her favorite street food: the hot, spicy rice cake, tteokbokki? Is this just what life is like?Siri 2 ini rasa bertambah berat. Rasa gelap menyelubungi. Sama seperti siri 1 penulis asyik mahu berhenti kerja tapi Doktor selalu minta penulis fikir balik. Bagi kata-kata rasional. Boleh aku katakan Doktor ini sangat profesional. Jadi belajarlah tak prejudis pada para psikologis. Jika siri 1 ada hal masih tak diluahkan kali ini hal sensitif pun diceritakan secara terang. Bagi sesetengah yang baca mungkin ada rasa agak terganggu.Ada part aku cemas saat penulis katakan perasaan ekstrem dia datang dan detik-detik fikiran dia waktu tu dan cubaan bunuh diri yang dinyatakan tanpa tapisan. Terkesan dengan kata-kata Doktornya rasionalkan balik penulis.Banyak hal terjadi pada penulis satu demi satu dibongkar sepanjang rawatan kali ni. Yang terkini + lampau semua terkait. Update: Forgot to put this in my review originally but one other thing I appreciated about this book is that the author is outspoken about her feelings about mental health and it's my understanding that a lot of Asian cultures tend to frown on this, so having such a visible figure doing this in an open way and receiving support is great. Above all, my biggest take away from her story is how important it is to speak to people about how you’re feeling. I’ve always been a firm believer in sharing your thoughts and emotions with people you trust. Even though thoughts themselves have no weight, they can be a heavy burden. Sharing that burden with someone else, someone you trust and perhaps love, can not only lighten that burden, but it can also create a strong bond between you and that trusted person.
