Review I've seen really good reviews of it elsewhere. Maybe I'm not ready for it yet, or maybe it tries to cover too much stuff, too many different sorts of change & the grief therefrom & how to work through it, to be sufficiently coherent or deal with each in sufficient (emotional) depth to be a good book for me. I'm also not crazy about the activities she suggests at the end of each chapter, though to be fair I soon stopped reading those sections entirely, as I stopped reading the book and started just skimming it.

I should say that approximately 15 years ago, her boor Codependant No More helped me immensely. I do like the author. I'm just not crazy about this book at this time.

I did like her brief discussion on radical faith vs. simple faith (If I am good, only good thing will happen to me). She says with Radical faith you recognize that you can be good and still bad things will happen to you--and it's nobody's fault. It gave me something to think about.

Description

Melody Beattie's (of Codependent no More, etc) son died at the age of twelve. After many years of struggling and coming to terms with her grief she wrote this book to help others through various kinds of grief--loss of a child, a relationship, suicide, ill health, the empty nest syndrome, etc.

While she has some useful things to say about acceptance -- much taken from AA and Al-Anon, much of how she has come to terms with the losses and difficulties in her life, and what she recommends is religious faith, which is not always accessible to others. She finds comfort in believing that she will be re-united with her son when she dies. Not not all religious faiths hold with this concept, and for those who never had, or who lost their religious faith due to a an extremely painful loss, will not find this useful.

On the other hand, those with a strong connection to AA and/or AL-Anon, or to a Christian religious faith, will find some hope and comfort in this book.
