About this deal

At one point, she quotes a third party who asserts that our ‘only choice’ is to ‘become larger and more courageous and more compassionate. It is a very human book, full of grace, permission to feel, and written in a way that it does not come off as one of those 'self-help' books.

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. Through her life work--and now this important book--Megan leads us to a place that's rare in our culture: a place where our loss is valued and honored and heard.

As quickly as possible, as quietly as possible, and preferably coming out the other way as a happier and more fulfilled person.Megan Devine has captured the grief experience: grief is not a problem to be solved, but a mystery to be honored.

Too often, it is a case of ‘me, me, me (not just the author, but also a quote from a third party, including participants to her grief writing course),’ when a single ‘me’ would suffice to highlight the more generic points she wants to make. I had 11 months between losing my Nan and my Sister and they feel very different to me so I knew I had to try to read this. Find her in the PBS documentary Speaking Grief, and in the new podcast, Here After with Megan Devine.

The amazing thing is that not only did thinking about things differently take an immense load off of me around my father's death, but also around some other relationships that I've lost in the last few years. The author, Megan Devine, is a pioneer; paving a new path for those who have suffered debilitating loss by allowing them to see grief in a new way. Megan Devine addresses this societal norm that offers no time, space or understanding for grief, and the way that norm is present in the day-to-day lives of someone dealing with a loss. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful people who took time to review this book and lead me to it.
