Not OK is a book for grieving people, those who love them, and all those seeking to love themselves? 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.

While this relationship between lack of empathy and tolerating opposing views may be true sometimes, I also think that’s a huge and unmerited generalization. She understands the pain that grieving people carry on top of their actual grief, including the pain of being judged, dismissed, and misunderstood.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. Because of this lack of clarity, some have criticized the book as something that could end up getting grieving people stuck between OK and not OK. Unfortunately, many of her points are partly lost in the background noise of the book, which could easily have shed a third of its content and be none the worse for it.

Grief is often overlooked and this little book is a terrific guide to rising up and starting a new greater YOU. The book acknowledges that grief takes you over and carries you along like floodwaters and that there is little you can do about it, but it helps you do what little you can and gradually build up on these efforts to find a measure of peace.It also perfectly evaluates what our western culture and medical establishment get wrong about grief. A couple of quotes from another third party go as far as to ascertain that some grieving people will end up ‘transfigured. He’s the NYT best-selling author of The Myth of Normal, Scattered Minds, the award-winning In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, and many other books. 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).

Her latest book, No Cure For Being Human (and Other Truths I Need to Hear), grapples with her diagnosis, her ambition, and her faith as she tries to come to terms with limitations in a culture that says anything is possible. It’s OK That You’re Not OK is the book I’ve been waiting for for 30 years—the one I can recommend to any newly bereaved parent, widow, widower, or adult grieving a death. 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. Their therapeutic self-reflection and self-awareness can help their clients process grief, open their hearts to healing, and feel less alone.

Our society is horrible at dealing with grief and it’s wonderful to have people like Megan Devine who are telling the truth about it. Megan Devine is the author of the book It's OK that You're Not OK: Meeting Grief and Loss in a Culture that Doesn't Understand. This is best suited for people dealing with grief themself or someone who is trying to get ressources on how to help/support a grieving person.

It's OK That You're Not OK shows us the path to be companions, rather than saviors, to loved ones who are experiencing deep pain.

Gabor Maté is a renowned speaker and author, with expertise in trauma, stress, addiction, and child development. It's OK That You're Not OK is a permission slip to feel what you feel, do what you do, and say what you say, when life finds you in a place of profound loss and the world seems hell-bent on telling you the right way to get back to being the person you'll never again be.
