The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz. I listen to the audio book... each chapter examines some examined and some unexamined self's of ourselves. It's disturbing in someways and it's enlightening in other.
At one time or another, most of us have felt trapped by things we find ourselves thinking or doing, caught by our own impulses or foolish choices; ensnared in some unhappiness or fear; imprisoned by our own history. We feel unable to go forward and yet we believe that there must be a way.
