Becoming Myself #Yalom

Becoming Myself: A Psychiatrist’s Memoir by Irvin D. Yalom
A special book for a special travel. I read it on my mobile phone on the flight from Dubai to Stockolm as my kindle had died in Pakistan after a glorious life of 5 years.
The book reminds me that I have to remind me and other people about the importance of having a network of people around us, not because you will need these people in the future (as somebody interprets the concept of network), but because we need them now, and they need us.
The book refers to many beautiful books, it is about empathy, family, therapy, research, interdisciplinarity, love, emigration, the relationship to your parents. I read it in Italian. I strongly recomend it.
