From Bishop Rickel:
So, on my sabbatical I got to read some more, but not nearly as much as I had hoped. Upon my return from sabbatical, I rediscovered all the time I have in a car! And Audible is your friend for that. I finished a book I have very much enjoyed called Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: A Therapist, Her Therapist, and Our Lives Revealed, by Lori Gottlieb. I honestly cannot remember how this got on my “you gotta read this” list, but it did, referred by something else I read or heard. Odd to a degree – I am so glad I followed through. Gottlieb is a therapist and a former writer for several hit shows, including Friends, who became a psychologist and counselor. When I first read the title – and Our Lives Revealed – I thought this might be some voyeur book into her clients, and in a way it is. She does talk about that – changing all the names to protect the innocent – but I now know this and Our Lives Revealed refers to OUR lives, yours and mine, and how our minds work. Always a supporter of therapy in good times and bad, I am a bigger supporter after this book. Even if you are not interested in any of that, the stories here are worth it. And she does a great job adding humor. I do recommend this book.
