How Rewriting Your Story Can Save Your Life From mindfulness to massage, pills to Pilates - Jehan Casinader tried it all, and none of it cured his depression. As an award-winning TV journalist, Jehan made a living from telling other people's stories - until he lost control of his... own. Increasingly suicidal, he wondered: was there something missing? This Is Not How It Ends chronicles Jehan's four-year descent into depression, and how he used the power of storytelling to climb out. In this gritty, vulnerable and life-affirming book, he argues that many of us think our brains are broken - but in fact, our stories are broken. We're playing poor characters in toxic stories, and our mental health is suffering as a result. Jehan began an experiment on himself. Could he rewrite his past? Could he reinvent his character? Could he create a whole new plot? Step-by-step, Jehan guides the reader through his process. Along the way, he learns about the power of suffering, courage and belonging. And he meets incredible people who have overcome mental distress by changing their own narratives. This Is Not How It Ends was written during the darkest months of Jehan's life, and is bound to challenge readers' understanding of mental illness. This practical book carries a message of hope: rewriting your story can save your life.
