As a woman entrepreneur who has recently been known as a mental health influencer, Selvia Lim receives many stories from her followers, which contain stories about life’s anxieties and ask for suggestions for solutions.

“In life, we need to experience changes in the form of suffering, pain, wounds, pain, which will shape us into better selves,” said Selvia Lim.
Selvia Lim analogizes this with articulation. By definition, articulation is the change of cavities and spaces in the vocal tract to produce good, correct, and clear speech sounds for words. The process of correct and good articulation is not easy.
“If likened to our lives, articulation means a change in lifestyle due to tests or obstacles we get. These tests or obstacles are like training that we need to undergo in order to produce better mental strength,” added Selvia Lim.
“This process of change inevitably causes pain, sadness, injury, anger, denial. However, in the end when we are able to process that all of that is the best way to grow and develop, we will emerge as better selves,” he continued.
This is what motivated Selvia Lim to give her book the title “Choosing Recover”. “With the method of self-articulation, all these tests and obstacles can make us know ourselves better,” said Selvia Lim
The book “Choosing Recover” has received many responses from various parties. Arlene Clarissa, a content creator, thinks books teach us that problems are normal and positive lessons can be learned.
“This book is like taking us on the journey of each individual’s life which of course is not always smooth. However, it all depends on how we respond and take lessons from the incident. Choosing to Recover provides a new perspective to continue to see problems as something normal and positive lessons can be learned from them. ,” said Arlene Clarissa.
