Struggle Well Live Well

We all dream of a problem-free-reality, but that’s never been a real-life option. There is no growth without struggle. But when those inevitable challenges arise in our lives, there are ways to struggle better.

If you’ve ever wanted to find a better way to deal with yourself, your relationships, your hangups, or even your addictions—but the idea of lying on the couch and spilling your guts to a stranger makes you more uncomfortable than comforted, take heart.

Kevin Gilliland gets where you’re coming from. Yes, he’s a clinical psychologist, and, yes, he has counseled hundreds of people working through struggles on every level. But from all this experience, his main takeaway is that sometimes we don’t need a season of sessions to get our lives back on track.

Sometimes we just need some straight talk from somebody with good perspective. Somebody who will, frankly, tell us if we’re off base. And he’s willing to be that guy. In his book, “Struggle Well Live Well,” he makes it easy for us to recognize that of course we’re not always perfect, and, of course we can always improve. And many times we can do it without a lot of drama or expense, if we’re just open to some objective perspective.

For anyone who ever said, “I’m not into therapy,” but recognizes that we can all use a little help from a friend, here’s that help. You’ll still struggle—that’s human nature—but you’ll struggle well. And you’ll live well.
