Admittedly, I'm finding good use for these types of writings lately. Lost lamb that I have been. Never in my life did I think I'd "need" 'em, but they've become more literary in tone in recent years (in my view) and more story-oriented to the point that they feel like novels, however autobiographical many of them are.

With that odd sort of embarrassed but happy confession out of the way, may I recommend: Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

Know how sometimes you think, Man! I totally know how that feels! Wow. WOW. Ugh. when you read about someone else's experiences with real-life pain? Somehow I've managed to feel a kinship with this woman because she ... indirectly validated a choice I made a long, long time ago by fast-forwarding what might have been, had I waivered.

She's an excellent writer. I should maybe mention that she is and was, before and at the time her story chronicled in this book, a professional writer. It's a good read for women at, nearing, fearing, or who have already past a crossroads in their life. I think the self-help sticker is accidental, if that encourages those who can't stand that stuff.
