Summary

When she was only seven, Yin's mother took her own life. Forty years later her father jumped to his death. This is the story of how she survived her parents' suicides.  
 
“When someone dear to us dies through suicide, we are left with the agonising ordeal of having to survive the heart-rending loss. It traumatises us and leaves us with a profound struggle to make sense of the suicide and learn to live again. This first-hand narration promises not only to enlighten, but also serves as a balm for those working through their own loss and grief.”— from the foreword by Anthony Yeo

    Joining the ranks of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, You Are a Badas*, and F*ck Feelings comes this refreshing, BS-free, self-empowerment guide that offers an honest, no-nonsense, tough-love approach to help you move past self-imposed limitations. 
     
    Are you tired of feeling fu*ked up? If you are, Gary John Bishop has the answer. In this straightforward handbook, he gives you the tools and advice you need to demolish the slag weighing you down and become the truly unfu*ked version of yourself. ''Wake up to the miracle you are,'' he directs. ''Here's what you've forgotten: You're a fu*king miracle of being.'' It isn't other people that are standing in your way, it isn't even your circumstances that are blocking your ability to thrive, it's yourself and the negative self-talk you keep telling yourself. 
     
    In Unfu*k Yourself, Bishop leads you through a series of seven assertions: 
     
    I am willing. 
    I am wired to win. 
    I got this. 
    I embrace the uncertainty. 
    I am not my thoughts; I am what I do. 
    I am relentless. 
    I expect nothing and accept everything. 
     
    Lead the life you were meant to have—Unfu*k Yourself.
