We all lead complex lives, lives full of responsibilities and
challenges, of problems, decisions, and stress. We play multiple
roles each day. We are parents, spouses, friends, workers, activists,
caregivers and leaders. In so many ways, the work we have
to do never ends. The challenge of navigating life’s complexity,
of determining priorities, of taking care of others, and ourselves,
of negotiating all our duties, and all our relationships, can feel
impossibly stressful and confusing. The world is full of amazing
pressures, economic, political, and personal. How we cope with
those pressures determines how we live our lives.
Dr. José Franceschini, a psychiatrist based in Puerto Rico,
has an unusual gift. He understands how we can live a happy
and balanced life. In his important book, Living Your Fullest
Life, he helps us all to see what balance truly means, and how
each of us can achieve our own happiness. In clear, accessible
language, he lays out a strategy for better living, with practical
guidelines, and easy to follow advice. He’s not afraid to take on
the big questions, to guide us on a path he understands so well.
I know very well the stresses and enormous pressures we
all endure, and how important the issue is of mental health in
our personal lives, and in our communities. Dr. Franceschini’s
book has helped me center myself, understand the multiplicity
of roles we all play. He’s helped me to live life to the fullest.
His book is a gift to us all.
