Description

A New Resource for Those Experiencing Loss

With 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 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.

On this unabridged audio recording read by the author, Megan offers stories, research, life tips, and creative and mindfulness-based practices to guide us through an experience we all must face. With Megan's gentle but direct guidance, you'll learn:

  • Why well-meaning advice, therapy, and spiritual wisdom so often end up making it harder for people in grief
  • How challenging the myths of grief - doing away with stages, timetables, and unrealistic ideals about how grief should unfold - allows us to accept it as a mystery to be honored instead of a problem to solve
  • Practical guidance for managing stress, improving sleep, and decreasing anxiety without trying to "fix" your pain

Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to "solve" grief. Megan writes, "Grief no more needs a solution than love needs a solution." It's OK That You're Not OK is a book for grieving people, those who love them, and all those seeking to love themselves - and each other - better.

Transfigurative treatise on grief

This audio book is articulated with poignant authenticity. It is a seminal work on living with tragic loss. It has personal reflection, research, powerful quotes, and useful activities. I highly recommend this book. I plan to listen to it often. Thank-you!

By far the best "grief" book

I lost my triplets 5 months into my pregnancy about 4 1/2 years ago. I've read many of books, listened to podcasts, gone to group and private counseling, but this book said it all. I grasped every word and related to every feeling. Grief cannot be healed, it will always exist. Reducing the suffering is the only thing we can control and even that takes times. Allowing one's self to be okay with not being okay is very freeing.

THANK YOU

The is by far the best book I have read on profound loss. Finally, a place to find validation and some measure of peace in my truth, without being told how to "fix" my pain, but instead showing me how to live within it, through it. A million thanks to the author for giving all of us this rare and precious place, this refuge from the well-meaning but clueless masses. Thank you.

Just what I needed to hear

I recently lost my husband in a horrific motorcycle accident in which I was severely injured. Not only was I dealing with my physical healing but now I needed to figure out how to grieve and continue with everyday life and bills and such. I never imagined that I would be a widow at 40, a week before my husband retired and we were getting ready for the rest of our lives. This book was suggested to me by a friend. The best gift I could receive at this horrible time. The validation that everything that I was hearing from people that I hated hearing, and every way that I was feeling, was OK. I need to give myself permission to feel these ways. I also love that there’s a chapter for the family and friends with things to say/not say, how to comfort etc. I HATE that I needed a book like this but so grateful that it’s available. I am so sorry that the author had to experience what she has in order to write it. Thank you Megan.

It's Okay that I'm Not Okay

Helped me realize that I will not "get over" my loss. I will carry my loss through my lifetime and that's normal. It is not weird to grieve for a lifetime. There, I said it. Please, don't tell anyone they need to just get over it (no matter what the loss).

Essential work on grieving and surviving

I recommend this book for those who grieve as well as their loved ones. It deals with the realities of grieving rather than denying the pain of loss. By empowering those who grieve to go through the process the author also empowers healing. The content benefits greatly by being read by the author. Again, this is an excellent work which I have found most helpful in dealing with the recent loss of a loved one.

real grief for real people

Megan lends invaluable insight into the world of grief and why it can make us feel so crazy. This book will revolutionize your experience and understanding of our cultural model of grief, how simple tending and pure acceptance is often withheld. You are ok, however you are not ok - feel that, take it in, know you are not alone in tending your loss and new life with Megan, this wonderful book and the brave community of the grief revolution as companions.
