REVIEW: It's Ok that You're Not Ok by Megan Devine

Here is my GoodReads review:

I lost my son to suicide and my good friend sent me this book. It is awesome, I have found it so helpful. This book has helped me deal with the well meaning but not so comforting things that people say to the grieving. This book taught me there is no "correct" way to grieve and that my feelings are "normal." It gave me great comfort to know I'm not losing my mind, I am grieving. The inability to think clearly, to remember things, the foggy brain, all parts of grief. 

As a mental health professional and someone who has suffered a great loss, I feel like Megan Devine truly understands. Whether you are dealing with a loss or other grief, supporting someone who is grieving or you just want to have a better understanding of grief, you should check out this book! I wish everyone would read it and society as a whole would be better equipped to support those who are carrying the weight of grief. I highly recommend this book!
