They didn’t probe thoroughly enough, often didn’t seem to ask the right and most obvious questions, didn’t address extreme patriarchy, which made me see clearly how much the therapist is the product of their culture, in which abuse towards women and alcoholism are normalised. I had someone to listen to my ramblings about how much I dislike myself and how desperately I wanted to change, even though I couldn’t find a way to achieve that. I also believe that marketing this as memoir and self-help can mislead audiences, although this is more memoir form, just through transcriptions. Internalizing their behavior, she questioned and criticized herself to the point of depression and severe anxiety.

There are so many personal details and the author’s willingness to share her thoughts and experiences, even if they portray her in a negative light, gives such an intimacy within the book.She has a solid job as a social media director, and she works at a publishing house when she realizes that she is beginning to have some harsh feelings about herself and others. She hides her feelings well at work and with friends, performing the calmness her lifestyle demands. I wanted this book to be emotionally revitalising, thought-provoking, and poignant, but it disappointed on every front.

Baek Se-Hee’s bravery in sharing her story encourages all of us to face our own struggles and seek support. or for those who want to understand how complicated one’s mind can be when one constantly needs external validation, and on top of it, is extremely empathetic. Clearly, the book is meant as a weapon to fight the stigma around mental illness, it is supposed to function as a resource to give visibility to people who suffer from depression and who might feel alone - and these are important objectives, as depression is a potentially deadly illness that is still misunderstood by many people.i get why therapists might review this and rate it low, but as someone who just wanted to be a fly on the wall and absorb this book for what it is (a transcript of client/therapist conversations), i really did enjoy it. I’ve got to accept that everyone has a flaw or two, and first and foremost, see myself as I am first. This is a hard book to review or rate because according to how it is being marketed it is supposed to be "part memoir" and "part self help", but then, it is neither. She hides her feelings well at work and with friends; adept at performing the calmness, even ease, her lifestyle demands. Because again, you literally just get the back and forth between her and her therapist, not her internal thoughts or dialogues re what is being said in therapy.

again, maybe i grossly misunderstood this because i'm a sheeple and not a mental health professional but still! I WANT TO DIE BUT I WANT TO EAT TTEOKBOKKI has a fantastic, catchy title, which was what originally gravitated me towards this book.Nonetheless, I am grateful to the author for so bravely, generously and candidly sharing her experiences through this book. A sincere attempt at self-discovery that will resonate with young people who suffer from similar forms of depression and anxiety. despite the issues i have with the book, i still would recommend readers give it a try because this honestly felt like free therapy to me. The conversations have no structure, no direction, they are all over the place, and I felt that the psychiatrist isn’t even interested in helping their patient.

This is a book that is revolutionary because it’s written by a woman and it’s talking about a lot of issues that are often swept under the rug in the author’s culture. The narrative gets off to a good start with Anderson’s nostalgic memories of her childhood in coastal Vancouver, raised by very young, very wild, and not very competent parents. I just appreciate how real and messy this book explains life, it really embraces the complexity of mental health and self perception.I think with this friend you thought you had a ‘special friendship’, which was why you tried to endure and continue. I get that it is brave to bare your intimate conversations in the protected space of therapy out for the public to consume, but then, the way it was structured just makes it feel. which i can understand because this is just a record of baek sehee's recount of her talks with her psychiatrist, but it did make the reading experience less enjoyable.
