Paperback:Stuff that sucks, accepting what you can't change and committing to what you can:2015
Author: Sedley, Ben
Year: 2015
Language: English
Interest category: Living & learning
Media class: Paperback
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Robinson
Resource type: Physical
Note: Each of us has thoughts that are painful at times; sometimes the pain is sadness, sometimes worry or anger or shame or grief or some feeling that you don't even have words for. If you are a young person struggling with your emotions, you do not want to be told that 'everyone feels like that' or that 'you will grow out of it'. You want to feel that your emotions are valid and that the person offering help truly understands how painful life can feel at times. With a strong emphasis on validation and compassion, 'Stuff That Sucks' encourages you to accept your emotions rather than struggling against them. It also shows how to reconnect with what is really important to you, giving you the tools to help clarify your personal values and take steps towards living a life where those values can guide you in your day-to-day behaviour.
