BOOK OF THE WEEK 📖

It's OK That You're Not OK

"In It’s OK That You’re Not OK, Megan Devine offers a profound new approach to both the experience of grief and the way we try to help others who have endured tragedy. Having experienced grief from both sides―as both a therapist and as a woman who witnessed the accidental drowning of her beloved partner―Megan writes with deep insight about the unspoken truths of loss, love, and healing. She debunks the culturally prescribed goal of returning to a normal, "happy" life, replacing it with a far healthier middle path, one that invites us to build a life alongside grief rather than seeking to overcome it."

Book Recommendation: The Courage to Grieve by Judy Tatelbaum 📖

"Judy Tatelbaum gives us a fresh look at understanding grief, showing us that grief is a natural, inevitable human experience, including all the unexpected, intense and uncomfortable emotions like sorrow, guilt, loneliness, resentment, confusion, or even the temporary loss of the will to live. The emphasis is to clarify and offer help, and the tone is spiritual, optimistic, creative and easy to understand. She provides excellent advice on how to help oneself and others get through the immediate experience of death and the grief that follows, as well as how to understand the special grief of children. The Courage to Grieve shows us how to live life with the ultimate courage: not fearing death. This book is about so much more than death and grieving; it is about life and joy and growth."

It’s open to anyone who has lost their spouse within the last two years and is facilitated by Rev. Dr. Larry Michael with Community Grief Support who shares, “The only way to get over grief is to go through it, with God’s help.” Learn more about Dr. Michael and this wonderful organization: www.communitygriefsupport.org.

I went to a group meeting over a year ago following the passing of my wife as a result of her battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. I was so glad I did. It has now been two years and I wrote about the caregiving, her death and the aftermath. I wanted to share it here in case anyone might benefit from sharing similar thoughts and feelings.
