Title: How Saying Yes to Depression Leads Us Into Healing
Author: Melissa Sarazin
Reading Level: Adult
A special thank you to the Author, Melissa Sarazin, for sending me her book to review!
What do you do when you are half way around the world away from your family and you discover you are suffering from depression? Where do you go to get help? Do you run back home? Or would that just complicate the situation more? This is the story of one woman's journey of self discovery. What made her finally realize that she was mentally unbalanced? What choices did she have? And which ones did she choose? Travel with her from the depths of despair as she takes each step toward getting back to a healthy, empowered, and magic filled life.
This book has an Eat, Pray, Love feeling (which I love!) I know the feeling of being in another country, with no family, and loads of changes...that is happening to me this very minute! This book isn't just for those who are depressed but those who want to make changes in their lives. Who might be unhappy with the way things are going, and/or the feelings they have on a regular basis.
I enjoyed the emphasis on journal writing because I have been keeping a journal since I was 11 and have recently stopped, because everything seemed to be coming out negative. It's a short book. Worth the read. If I were you, I would pick it up. It's MORE than a self help book. There are loads of stories and the author's own experiences...which make it a great read, and not just something to help.
