This book is for anyone who has lost someone or knows of someone who is grieving.
All too often, we think of grieving as black and white; we as a society have even put the number of days we should get over the loss of someone.
We try to one-up each other with stories like “my lost is bigger than yours.”
Megan shut all this nonsense down with a warm but blunt approach.
I will also recommend this book to anyone going through a breakup and finding it hard to move on.
It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand will be the perfect companion for anyone struggling with grief or feeling misunderstood in their emotions, especially if you keep hearing people tell you, “You are not over it as yet; geez, he died over a year ago.”
Death is a part of life, but I think we get much more guidance with living than we do with death.
We are never preparing for loss, it comes on unexpectedly, yet the world requires us to process a million and one new emotions in two weeks of bereavement.
It’s OK That You’re Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture That Doesn’t Understand book makes for a perfect gift for a loved one going through a hard time; it’s a book I will always recommend to anyone wanting to have a better understanding of grief.
