“Part of getting to know yourself is to unknow yourself
– to let go of the limiting stories you’ve told yourself about who you
are so that you can live your life, and not the stories you’ve been
telling yourself about your life.”
Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone
When Maybe You Should Talk to Someone was released into the world, it became an instant New York Times bestseller
and international phenomenon, with readers across the globe finding
their truth in the powerful stories Lori Gottlieb shared from inside
her therapy room. As millions highlighted and underlined page after

lessons and create for us a guide as transformative as the book itself?
decided to do just that. In this empowering, one-of-a-kind workbook,
Lori offers a step-by-step process for becoming the author of your own
life by giving it a thorough edit. Using eye-opening concepts,
thought-provoking exercises, compelling writing prompts, and real
examples from the patients in the original book, Lori has created an
easy-to-follow guide through the journey of becoming our own editors,
examining aspects of our narratives that hold us back, and discovering
the ways in which changing our stories can change our lives.
An experience, a meditation, and a practical toolkit combined into one, Maybe You Should Talk to Someone: The Workbook is
the companion readers have been asking for: a revolutionary method for
understanding which stories to keep and which to revise so that we can
create our own personal masterpieces. By the end of this “unknowing,”
you will be surprised, inspired, and most of all, liberated.
