My review

I was recommended this novel due to the grief I am experiencing. My heart is broken after losing my mum. Heartbreak and grief often come hand in hand. My mum meant the world to me. I love her and miss her very much.

This book has a lot of interesting advice, ideas on life and comments on the working of our minds. There are sections which related more to my situation than others. A lot of the book relates to a romantic heartache, yet there were also invaluable sections for me too.

The sections that I will re read and will help me relate to the negative thoughts of regret and blaming oneself for different situations. The sections on self esteem in this book are very helpful and I particularly like the exercises that would be invaluable for everyone.

My favourite quote from this book is ‘change yourself on the inside and the outside world changes too’. I believe this to be very true. We have the power to change our thoughts. With yoga and meditation, my thoughts change due to the space I give my mind. Being with family and friends gives us this too.

Thank you Dr McKenna and Dr Willbourn for your book. The emotional pain felt when we grieve is overwhelming and the worst pain I have ever felt in my life. To gain insight from professionals and learn how to help ourselves to grieve in a healthier manner feels important. I think it’s important to realise we may grieve for rest of our days… we may cry everyday for our loved ones… but to gain advice and support will help us to live with our grief and come to a point in which we may concentrate on the beautiful memories and feel our loved one is with us always.

You will always be in my heart mum. I love you.

This was taken a year before my mum passed. We have such beautiful memories. I will always long for more memories and more time together.
