Self-Help Books - November 16th 2013, 04:20 PM

Hi guys, I don't know if this is the right thread for this so feel free to move it

Anyway I was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for some good self-help books. Due to my recent turning point in life i am trying my absolute damn hardest to keep myself going and to control/manage my emotions. Im juggling alot of different things though, uni academic work, uni placement, anxiety/social anxiety, depression, urges to self-harm, recovery from my ED, coping with life in general, friends and family and trying hard to be the best i can be.. So yeah i dont know, just some recommendations of some books that may have helped you guys out.

Thank you

I don't know of any actual self help books, but any of the books I listed on my profile are great reads. They helped me sort through many situations in my life because they are written about serious subjects from the point of view of an insider. They help me see that I am not alone. If you are the kind to be easily triggered then I do not recommend those books. I did read one book when I was younger that still speaks to me today. It's written for upper elementary kids to read but it has amazing meaning in it. It's called Katie's angel. It's a bit happier than the ones listed on my profile. Sorry I couldn't be much help. I just posted on that off chance that you're like me and like hearing actual accounts of people going through the same things.

Hey Adalia, thanks for replying No need to apologise honey, and yeah I am kinda like you in that sense. I have read quite a few books like that, which portray some good messages through sharing other peoples experiences. I have many of them kinds, but right now I'm specifically looking for some self-help books to kinda get me through. Thanks anyway though, I will have a look at the ones on your profile and read them too!

Hey I moved this over to Literature since you are asking about books.


And here you are living, despite it all.
