Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER ‘One of the most valuable books I’ve ever read’ Adwoa Aboah ‘A remarkable portrayal of how we need to understand ourselves to truly heal’ Esther Perel ‘Hard recommend’ Pandora Sykes ‘Cannot recommend it highly enough’ Lorraine Kelly ______________________________________________________ If change is the natural order of things, why do so many people struggle with the milestones of life – from first jobs and first loves to children leaving home and retirement? We live in a culture of limitless choice – and life is now more complex than ever. In This Too Shall Pass, acclaimed psychotherapist Julia Samuel draws on hours of conversations with her patients to show how we can learn to adapt and thrive during our most difficult and transformative experiences. Illuminated by the latest social and psychological research, this book unflinchingly deals with the hard times in family, love, work, health and identity. From a woman deciding whether to leave her husband for a younger lover, to a father handling a serious medical diagnosis. And from a new mother struggling with the decision to return to work, to a young man dealing with the aftermath of coming out, and a woman starting over after losing her job. These powerful, unforgettable and deeply intimate stories about everyday people will inform our understanding of our own unique response to change and enlighten the way we approach challenges at every stage of life.
