Books I Read: Silver Linings Playbook

Silver Linings Playbook


Pat is a person with bipolar disorder. He has a theory that his life is a movie produced by God. And his God-given mission is to become physically fit and emotionally literate, whereupon God will ensure a happy ending for him—the return of his estranged wife, Nikki.

I bought this book yesterday.

It cost me $15.

As a person with bipolar disorder 2, I can’t really relate with Pat that much. But I can relate to his habitual jogging rituals to tire himself whenever he feels sad or mad.

Maybe the reason why I can’t relate to him is because he has bipolar disorder 1. I’m not saying that having bipolar disorder 1 is bad. But bipolar disorder 1 is more extreme.

He’s also a little bit deluded. But what I love about this character is how he strongly believes in silver linings also known as “good endings”.

I’m currently at page 67/289.

And yeah I’m obsessed with books about mental health > mental illness.

It makes me feel normal and okay.

  1. Keep Reading – it is the power of connection – you take in many different perspectives that hone your own unique view- I’m going to try to publish an e booklet of my book reviews- if you haven’t yet you should too!
