- Book Intro
Pain will pass, and love will last to the end.
A friendly and sincere record that heals your shattered emotions!
A collection of essays by a best-selling author who has been exploring the inner light and shadows. This book discusses how we should heal our wounds and control our minds. It contains some of the author’s most beloved essays published on various media platforms as well as some unpublished works of prose. The author was once bullied by her friends, blamed herself for her introverted personality, and repeatedly failed at job interviews. Even after she became a famous writer, she suffered from anxiety. She then learned to take care of herself by studying psychology. In this book, instead of offering readers simple words of consolation that don’t require any responsibility, the author provides realistic solutions that can be implemented immediately.
From No Boundary by Ken Wilber, the master of integral psychology, the author of this book gained the integral view of “We suffer only in parts, not as a whole.” In this book, she argues that mentally separating oneself from others exacerbates pain. As a solution to this, she suggests that readers break away from their obsession with parts and gain insight into the whole. This book will offer a chance to overcome pain for those who are wary of hospitals or counseling centers but wish to get back on their feet by themselves.
