Brain Drops: A Humanistic Approach Towards A Positive Existence by Jeannie Tyrrell is a fascinating book that will take readers on a different kind of journey. The memoir is also the author's personal journey of getting out of her detrimental escapism that ended up being negative, letting go of her past, and finally making her discover herself and accept herself. Jeannie Tyrrell is of the opinion that society is deeply addicted to escapism and no one is concentrating on what really bothers them. She speaks of the positive-negative ways of escapism and how the problem in society is widespread, acknowledged, and heavily exploited. The memoir also discusses how the author built a tight-knit comfortable world for herself of escapism as a buffer against the domestic abuse at home and severe mental abuse when she attended school. It is a story of healing, self-acceptance, and self-discovery and is a good way for all those readers who practice escapism to look into themselves and see how to transform their lives for the better.
The topic chosen is relevant in today's society and many readers will be able to relate to Jeannie Tyrrell's experiences. She is honest and vocal about her experiences and how she handled them initially and she speaks about the importance of being present in the world everyone lives in. She speaks about how she started giving importance, time, and attention to her brain and necessary it was to look at life in different ways. Brain Drops: A Humanistic Approach Towards A Positive Existence also shares details of her bruised brain and how it was a fight to get back to the real world from what was a fantasy land.
