with essays to teach us the best skills, checklists, and suggestions for supporting and comforting others through the grieving process Many people who have suffered a loss feel judged, dismissed, and misunderstood by a culture that wants to "solve" grief. I have since passed this book on to my Mom who is also finding a lot of clarity and helpfulness through its message.

I also recommend this to everyone, because at some point you or someone you love will be bereaved, and the information in this book is worth knowing ahead of time.This is also a great book to give to family or friends who are trying to understand the best (and most genuine) ways to support someone in grief. But I wish she hadn’t focused so much on accidental deaths because it felt like the rest of us, experiencing “expected” deaths, should just move on already. Her celebrated animations and explainers have garnered over 75 million views and are used in training programs around the world.

Megan Devine offers a loving, holistic, and honest vision of what it means to ‘companion each other inside what hurts. In this wonderfully honest and deeply generous book, Devine confronts the reality of grieving and reminds us that 'love is the thing that lasts. This is THE book to read whether you are in the throes of early grief or whether long-term grief has settled in your bones. In addition to writing your elected officials, giving blood, and advocating for change in your chosen arenas, you can help the RIG team deliver grief support directly to communities affected by violence or disaster.Fear takes over in the people around you because they know it could happen to them, and they don’t want to think about that, it’s too painful.

The main highlights of this book include what to say and what not to say to those in the grieving process.

HUFFPOST Featured on NPR's RADIO TIMES and WISCONSIN PUBLIC RADIO When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: there is nothing wrong with grief. Instead of trying to make things better ( you can’t ) read this book and understand that the bereaved person is forever changed. The book ten sheds light on all the ways in which this approach to grief is counter-productive and often does more harm than good to the grieving person.Many people wanted details about her illness and about her risk factors (she had none of them by the way; no family history of cancer and no other known risk factors).

Through "It's OK That You're Not OK," I learned concepts for living with the death of my daughter and how to build "a life around the edges of what will always be a vacancy. She also offers practical suggestions related to coping with stress and anxiety that may stem from grief. Megan is a licensed psychotherapist, and a member of the California Association for Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors. When a painful loss or life-shattering event upends your world, here is the first thing to know: there is nothing wrong with grief.From media-portrayal, to work-place regulations around allowed leave-of-absence after the passing of a loved one, to the way we inadvertently phrase our condolences and consolidations. Watching her die was at once a horrible nightmare and a relief to see the end of her suffering—I felt so much guilt for feeling relieved, and so much anguish over the many wrong things I had said and all the things left unsaid. In a culture that leaves us all woefully unprepared to navigate grief, Megan Devine's book is a beacon for a better way of relating.
