    un libro che ti fa 'fare a pezzi' l'elefante, che fa riflettere su come affrontare i problemi della vita invece che caderci dentro immobile.
    un'inizio. un libro per chi non sa nulla di crescita personale cerca un "come fare a..." in merito alla sua vita.
    facile

    曾經很偶然的讀到一個朋友寫她手機的問候語是‘You are the best!’。那時我們還是大學生,她每天六點起床,打開手機面對的就是這句話。

    驚訝之餘,我第一個反應是:我真的和這個人屬於同一掛的嗎?我和她是在網路上認識的,當我們在現實生活開始有更多往來後,果然發現我們並合不來。後來發生一件事,她覺得她非常關心我在幫我的忙,我卻認為她侵犯我隱私、心裡非常不舒服。只是我始終沒勇氣告訴她我的感覺,拙劣的找藉口不回電話、假裝沒看到她的來信,就這樣躲起來,直到她離開。

    曾經很偶然的讀到一個朋友寫她手機的問候語是‘You are the best!’。那時我們還是大學生,她每天六點起床,打開手機面對的就是這句話。

    驚訝之餘,我第一個反應是:我真的和這個人屬於同一掛的嗎?我和她是在網路上認識的,當我們在現實生活開始有更多往來後,果然發現我們並合不來。後來發生一件事,她覺得她非常關心我在幫我的忙,我卻認為她侵犯我隱私、心裡非常不舒服。只是我始終沒勇氣告訴她我的感覺,拙劣的找藉口不回電話、假裝沒看到她的來信,就這樣躲起來,直到她離開。

    回想起來,因為我持續並日益惡化的顯現出遇到困境不知所錯的無能,有幾些朋友曾嚴厲/直率/不留情面的踢我這塊頑強的石頭。有時我知道他們是對的,但出於怯懦我總是選擇不面對,回過頭不知道怎麼面對愛之深責之切的朋友,竟連帶著躲著她們;有時一些人自信過頭,像開頭所提的那個朋友越過線,我怕衝突,也沒勇氣正面告訴他們我的想法,於是又避著。經年累月,我逃到天涯海角,以為自己去深山修行去了;謝絕了想介入我生活的人,對偶爾來敲門問好的朋友我驚慌的叨叨敘敘,總像做錯了事被抓包。

    實際上,這麼多年來我一直沒有面對自己的問題;實際上,我的情況越來越糟,我知道吞多少止痛藥能死,卻也知道我連死去的勇氣也沒有。我生活中沒有朋友、不喜歡老朋友問候、也不敢交新朋友。我很自然的將自己的處境怪罪在社會、我恨所有可以恨的事務。我折磨我男友直到他也垮了,過去四年一直是我比較常哭,哭到今年我已經沒眼淚了,現在一發現我心情不好男友便開始哭泣。

    我一直以為Self-Help學派不僅是與我無關,連瀏覽這類書籍都是可恥的。我知道我心裡還是過不了這個關卡,於是連加Self-Help書籍在虛擬書櫃上都覺得一定要饒舌解釋半天。我一直嘲弄並反對那些早上起床面對鏡子反覆講「妳是最棒的、妳可以做到、妳可以解決一切難題」非我族類的怪胎。然後今天早上走路去上班的路上,我開始小聲的告訴自己從書上抄下來的第一條定律Taking Responsibility means….

    結果,因為長期把自己視為羞恥的、可鄙的廢物,我連說這些句子的勇氣都不夠。我馬上回到許多不知道如何面對的日子,死命咬著下唇、控制呼吸、阻止自己躲到某個角落大哭的情緒。繼續自憐、繼續覺得世界對自己不公平、繼續逃著眾人、繼續憎恨該是多麼舒服。但是我很想離開那個死角,我想要具存在感的活著,我想要快樂。

    大概念到第四或第五遍時,我就可以習慣自己的聲音,可以擺脫自我怨恨,可以把這些定律當作課文般背誦。差不多背到第四條時,些微感覺也許我可以相信這些概念的。

    說到底,稱這類書籍Self-Help也不無道理:改變,也是要主體準備好了、願意面對自己才能發生的。另外,原來看著鏡子對自己說「妳是最棒的」並沒有那麼容易。

    The essence of the whole book is in its title: Feel the fear, and do it anyway.

    This is a 2-part job, and the author mainly focus on the second part, "Do it any way". This is quite disappointing for me, since I think aware of the problem is half way of dealing with it. I am sure there are people who feel the fear but freeze by the fear and cannot act on it. But, I suppose the majority of the population do not have a very concrete idea / feeling that we are actually afraid.

    Fear is a very tricky emotion, since Fear has soooo many different names and face:
    - Anxiety (fear of uncertainty, danger or failure)
    - Depression (fear that I am not going to be happy forever)
    - Nervousness (a mild form of anxiety)
    - Tension

    etc, etc, etc

    Too bad that this book does not dig deeper into Fear and analyse its different disguise.

    If you know any book that analyse fear in depth, please let me know. Thanks!

    I read many personal development books. Not many of them are as easy to read as this book. This book discusses one major problem in many people's life - FEAR and the solution to conquer it.

    Why do people have fear? The answer from Susan is so simple! You fear because you think you can't handle the situation. Mind blowing, huh? The solution to conquer fear is even simpler. "All you have to do to diminish your fear is to develop more trust in your ability to handle whatever comes your way!"

    It is more easy said then done. However, this book provides practical ways to follow. Reading this book is one of the way to conquer fear! Of course, reading without action and expecting different result is nothing but wishful thinking. So "Feel the fear, and do it anyway!"
