A journal for meeting grief with honesty and kindness--honoring loss, rather than packing it away
With her breakout book It's OK That You're Not OK, Megan Devine struck a chord with thousands of readers through her honest, validating approach to grief. In her same direct, no-platitudes style, she now offers How to Carry What Can't Be Fixed--a journal filled with unique, creative ways to open a dialogue with grief itself. "Being allowed to tell the truth about your grief is an incredibly powerful act," she says, "This journal enables you to tell your whole story, without the need to tack on a happy ending where there isn't one."
Grief is a natural response to death and loss--it's not a problem to be fixed. This workbook contains no clichés, timetables, or checklists of stages to get through; it won't help you "move on" or put your loss behind you. Instead, you'll find encouragement, self-care exercises, daily tools, tear-and-share resources to help you educate friends and allies, and prompts to help you honor your pain and heartbreak.
"Your grief has an intelligence of its own," Devine writes. "Let it tell you what it knows." With How to Carry What Can't Be Fixed, this pioneering author brings you an essential resource to help you enter a conversation with your grief, find your own truth, and live into the life you didn't ask for--but is here nonetheless.
