Megan Devine has started a AMAZING conversation around grief, loss, and love When you understand that one can be ok, not being ok, it normalizes grief Grief is NOT a pathologyno than love is a pathology Thank you Megan for sharing your grief, love, and wisdom I am buying this book in boxes of 5 I am now a grief warrior Random acts of griefness can be found everywhere 3 3 Acknowledgment and recognition, served straight up beginning with the dedication For those who are the stuff of other people s nightmares Filled with insights on the full realities of deep grief and our culture s aversion to pain, this book is a must read for those who ve suffered a deep loss, including an out of order death, and those who want most to support them This is the book I wish I d had when my younger brother died 14 years after his death, I know these words hold the wisdom of what it takes to survive a death you will never get over As the author states Some things cannot be fixed They can only be carried Her compassionate words have the power to carry you.
This book is a must read I recommend it to everyone It s freat for people going through lose, people supporting them and really anyone Give you an understanding of how you feel and speaks in a way that you can relate This book will benefit anyone who either knows someone experiencing grief or is experiencing it themselves.
I can t thank Megan Devine enough for creating this book I truly believe this book is the catalyst to send the way society views and handles grief in the right direction.
There are so many grief resources out there but they all seemed to say the same things and many feel insulting and outdated Megan Devine s book is a much needed breath of fresh air She doesn t try to tell you things are going to get better or they d want you to lead a happy life or any other statement that, whether intentionally or not, feels diminishing and basically like a slap in the face Its Ok That You re Not Ok is a must read for anyone and personally I think it should be the new standard in schools to teach people how to treat those going through grief as well as those who have lost.
Countless thank yous to the author, Megan Devine You are sending society in the right direction.
