Not a fun read, indeed, but such an important one, a book (Consent: A memoir, by Vanessa Springora) that impacted me in more ways than I can even begin to describe. When and if my thoughts on this book will be less chaotic, I shall write specifically about it. Meanwhile, considering the trigger warning on sexual abuse, this is not just a book, but a detailed radiography on how an abuser acts, how the society frequently defends the abuser, how devastating is an abuse during childhood-adolescence, how healing can be obtained.
It was only a matter of time until Esther Perel´s masterclasses appeared again in my recommendations :=) She recently launched one of her amazing books in Spain and thus was interviewed in one of the most popular podcasts in Spain, so do yourself a favor and listen to her. Again and again.
