We’re all suffering in our own ways. But, more often than not, we’re doing it alone, even though we shouldn’t have to.
Most self-help books and a lot of the ideas behind mental illness are about how people can “cure” it by “changing their attitude.” This idea often leaves sufferers feeling as if they are failing at “curing” their illness because society tells them that there is a cure. Outside of Your Head focuses on accepting that mental illness is a part of a person, and that the skills developed to cope with those illnesses can be positive things.
This book levies hard truths with humor and wisdom earned through the lessons of those with mental illness. Through this lens, those who don’t suffer from these illnesses can gain understanding of what it’s like to live with mental illness. We never know what the lives of those around us are truly like, and kindness costs so little. Why not take some time and see things from a new perspective?
