After writing a detailed memoir of her battle with depression, Susan Calman is on a mission to find the positives in life. Can she, single-handedly bring back kindness?
Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim. To help people understand depression. This book has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. Susan's joy at being on Strictly Come Dancing is an inspiration to all of us.
These are difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. That it's ok to love people, that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant and to bring on the joy.
So the mission is simple.To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back kindness and community, to find the joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear.
Susan is a one-woman army of hope, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction.
