Ta deuxième vie commence quand tu comprends que tu n'en as qu'une
Ta deuxième vie commence quand tu comprends que tu n'en as qu'une | Raphaelle Giordano

- Vous souffrez probablement d'une forme de routinite aiguë.
- Une quoi ?
- Une routinite aiguë. C'est une affection de l'âme qui touche de plus en plus de gens dans le monde, surtout en Occident. Les symptômes sont presque toujours les mêmes : baisse de motivation, morosité chronique, perte de repères et de sens, difficulté à être heureux malgré une opulence de biens matériels, désenchantement, lassitude...
- Mais... Comment vous savez tout ça ?
- Je suis routinologue.
- Routino-quoi ?
Camille, trente-huit ans et quart, a tout, semble-t-il, pour être heureuse. Alors pourquoi a-t-elle l'impression que le bonheur lui a glissé entre les doigts ? Tout ce qu'elle veut, c'est retrouver le chemin de la joie et de l'épanouissement. Quand Claude, routinologue, lui propose un accompagnement original pour l'y aider, elle n'hésite pas longtemps : elle fonce. À travers des expériences étonnantes, créatives et riches de sens, elle va, pas à pas, transformer sa vie et repartir à la conquête de ses rêves...

This is a weird self-help book masquerading as a novel. It wasn't what I expected. No idea what I expected. The title in English is Your Second Life Begins When You Realize You Only Have One. I'm actually surprised this was translated to English and that they kept that long title.

IuliaC A self-help book for beginners 😁👍 1w

This was pretty superficial but made me happy and thoughtful every time I picked it up. Need to put all these life lessons into practice. Glad I read it.

"You're probably suffering from a type of acute routinitis. [...] It's an emotional disorder that is starting to affect more and more people, especially in the West. The symptoms are nearly always the same: lack of motivation, chronic despondency, loss of direction and meaning in life, finding it hard to feel happy despite an abundance of material wealth, a feeling of disillusionment and lethargy, amongst other things."

Distributing self-help advice via fictional novel is an interesting approach. Claude is a life coach with a striking resemblance to Sean Connery guiding Camille out of ‘routinitis‘. My favorite piece of advice (excepting the title), ‘Get off your cross. We need the wood.‘

Pic: Since this book was translated from French the poodle seemed appropriate.

I can see why this is popular, like shades of gray for sex. The Middle Aged woman is bored with her middle classed life. This is a self help guide disguised as a novel. The techniques are real cognitive therapy ones. I thought the husband was having an affair, not afraid of not being good enough for his improved wife.

This novel manages to be a light read (I wish there was more about the MC‘s parents, for example) while seriously tackling common self-help topics and phrases (i.e. setting “ SMART goals”). The cover blurb says it‘s a best seller in France. In between pick and so-so. Cozying up today— yesterday and today were/are snow days from school but it‘s raining now — I‘m not going out to shovel in that! See my new floor lamp 😄? From IKEA.

"While not being clinically depressed, one could still have a feeling of emptiness and unease and suffer from the unpleasant sensation that although you had everything you needed to be happy, you didn‘t have the key to make the most of it."

"As for what gives life meaning, it now seemed to me that it involved getting to know how to give the best of yourself based on the qualities that made up your true identity."

AutumnRLS A sweet little book. I kept anticipating it would become something other than what it was, but in the end what it was was enough. 3y
