Aku percaya aku akan menjadi semakin bahagia jika aku semakin sering melihat ke dalam diriku sendiri. It takes a lot of courage to bare one's internal struggles and deepest darkest secrets to the world, so I always hesitate before giving low ratings to books like this. Diriku adalah sesuatu yang harus kubantu secara perlahan, kutuntun selangkah demi selangkah dengan penuh kasih sayang dan kehangatan.

While there are occasional breaks in this patient/psychiatrist dialogue, these are brief, lasting one or two pages and consist of the author musing on the words of her psychiatrist or offering her own words of wisdom. I WANT TO DIE BUT I WANT TO EAT TTEOKBOKKI has a fantastic, catchy title, which was what originally gravitated me towards this book. Unfortunately, that’s not quite the case (for me, at least) – in fact, it’s probably a timely lesson in checking books out more closely before reaching out for a review copy. As a result, profound subjects like the stigma of suicide are lost in the weeds of the monotonous stretches that surround references to them.This didn’t feel like I was reading someone’s memoir, but more so an account of their experience in therapy. Like I said, American audiences might find this a generic book, but Korean audiences might feel seen with this content.

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. then in the end there's a note from see-hee's therapist, and see-hee finishes with a few personal essays about specific problems in her life. It’s the shortest day of the year and the longest night here in the Northern Hemisphere, and it’s only natural for there to be a little seasonal depression as our sunlight dwindles. I Want To Die But I Want To Eat Tteokpokki adalah esai yang berisi tentang pertanyaan, penilaian, saran, nasihat, dan evaluasi diri yang bertujuan agar pembaca bisa menerima dan mencintai dirinya.

I had expected this to be more of a memoir of depression with a bit of humour as well (the title and cover suggest at least that much) but it’s really a self-help book, existing of written down therapy sessions. However, life is the container that holds both sadness and happiness, providing a sense of comfort and joy. The author and therapist both acknowledge that at the end - there's no conclusion, there's just this. I was wondering why this book was so hyped until I did some Nancy Drewing and realized that someone from BTS apparently endorsed this book so I guess it's true what they say: The boy bands will inherit the earth. Part memoir, part self-help book, I Want to Die but I Want to Eat Tteokbokki is a book to keep close and to reach for in times of darkness.
