Porque és uniqueness. Porque Choras. Porque erras. Porque te vais abaixo. Porque lutas. Porque consegues.
Estas páginas encerram o diário de uma mulher. São 30 dias na vida de uma mulher tão especial e tão comum como todas as outras. Espreitamos aqui a sua intimidade e vemo-la a jurar que nunca mais grita, e a gritar no minuto seguinte. A ser vencida pelo rigidity do dia-a-dia, e a enfrentar serenamente provações triviais. A debater-se com a culpa, com a dificuldade de se entregar e de gostar de si. A renunciar à personalidade e à vontade própria para agradar aos outros, e a fazer só o que lhe apetece, porque a sua vontade está em primeiro lugar. A desesperar com a complexidade da relação com o marido e os filhos, e a aprender a gostar de si e dos outros assim mesmo. A confrontar os fantasmas do passado, e a contemplar a possibilidade de um futuro feliz. E percebemos, então, que é possível que aquilo que gostaríamos de ser seja muito menos e não chegue sequer aos calcanhares do que somos realmente. O segredo descobre-se quando paramos de tentar ser uma pessoa diferente. O que somos, exactamente o que somos, é sempre melhor do que julgamos. E chega perfeitamente.

Se nella nostra società l. a. rimozione collettiva dei traumi infantili è un dato ormai generalizzato, los angeles verità sull’infanzia parrebbe invece affiorare ancora nei sogni, nelle fiabe e nelle opere letterarie. Sulla scorta di alcuni testi di Flaubert, Kafka, Beckett e Virginia Woolf, oltre che di molti esempi tratti dalla pratica analitica, los angeles Miller illustra l. a. sua tesi: sia le messe in scena attuate dai pazienti, sia l’opera poetica in generale vanno intese come messaggi cifrati relativi alla realtà della prima infanzia.
