"It is a joy to be hidden but a disaster not to be found." -- D.W. Winnicott
cried ceaselessly throughout this book for the self-recognition.
I would cry too. This is on my must read books now. The words “How to thrive when the world overwhelms you” hit a cord with me…yup must read
I read this book in 2009 after returning from a European Cruise with people who were not my kindred spirits, after 3 weeks of a packed schedule and many time differences I thought I was going crazy and my fellow travellers could not understand why I was ‘spaced out’ all the time. When I read this I felt so much relief, all my life I’ve wondered why I feel the way I feel, it explains so much. No longer do I tolerate the ‘Oh you are too sensitive’ (with rolling eyes) from people.
im curious about this book..
This book is incredible! Thank you for suggesting it! I can’t turn back the clock but I have spent many years thinking I was alone in my feelings. We should be able to learn more about psychology in our adolescence, those are the years that form us. Our children could have the opportunity to experience such different lives than most do now. So much needs to be added with what our children learn in school, simple steps taken daily on how to deeply care for themselves and others.
this book describes me pretty well too! although I don’t really feel, I guess, strong enough to be who I am in the world, given that not everyone is as sensitive as me. so, I’m still kind of fearful of being around people, but slowly claiming my power, and Alanis is one of the amazing people helping through this journey. )
