Description

Reasons to Stay Alive THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO FEEL TRULY ALIVE? Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living. This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again. A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth. "I wrote this book because the oldest clichés remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven't been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free."

    Matt writing is humble, honest and heart warming. This book will touch each of us differently, some more than others and no doubt affect each of us differently. For me, it was a beautiful experience reading it, tears flowed freely and at the end, I closed this book filled with gratitude. Thank you Matt

    The last time I actually started and finished a book was back in December 2013. I often start books, but in this fast paced and distracting lifestyle, I often have some reason to click out of it. But not this book. It captured me from the very first few words! Even if I took a few days in between reading, I felt this pull back towards the book, because I felt it was written ABOUT ME and FOR me because I too suffer from clinical depression. I have been ashamed to admit it before, but this book really has helped me understand that I'm actually not crazy! I will admit that reading this book did make things slightly hard on me in some instances. Some things I hadn't experienced before, began manifesting once I read some of Matt's words. This is when I needed to take a few days away and realize what is me and what are the words and experiences of Haig's. However, this book has done alot more good than bad for me. It has helped me realize I am not alone. It has made me cry, because I felt like those words are my inner thoughts. How can this man know what I feel like? Or think like? But I have also felt a sense of unity and happiness because he has learned to manage his depression. And I too had begun to learn to manage mine but a major shift in my life took place these past few months that has really thrown me off and I was spiraling. I came across this book at really the best time ever. It is helping me remember my coping mechanisms. Matt, I would like to personally thank you for willing to be so vulnerable and candid about your life with depression. I know I will come back to your book and read your words again several times in my life. This book is a must have for everyone who suffers from depression or knows of someone who suffers from depression. It is truly full of value and wisdom. Thanks Matt

    Matt really hits the nail on the head! His relationship with anxiety and depression really made me see how there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I related so much to this book that I plan on reading all of his books! Great writer :)
  • An unusually honest and at times scary book but worth every page

    Having read quite a few books on depression I wasn't sure if I would even finish the first few chapters when started reading. At times it is quite scary and even triggered a few palpitations whilst reading it. As a person who suffers with anxiety this book isn't an easy read but persevere, it could seriously help anyone in need or anyone trying to understand mental illness. Beautifully written and brutally honest. Matt's ability to share his experiences is a lesson to us all and a hopeful one too. We can learn to live with our darkest fears and become stronger as we do it.
  • Thank you...

    ... For your honesty. I relate to so much of the dark and narrowing feelings that you have been so honest and frank about. I have bookmarked all the things that I need to start doing and appreciating me like the love of my new husband and my family and remembering to breathe. Wish it were longer. Your writing style reverberated with me and made me feel comforted that someone feels how I do and that there is hope.
