Banyen's Description: 

A beautifully-designed journal for meeting grief with honesty and kindness—honoring loss, rather than packing it away.

With her book It's OK That Youre 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 an illness to be cured or a problem to be fixed. This workbook contains no clichés, timetables, or checklists of stages to get through; it won't help you move past or put your loss behind you. Instead, you'll find encouragement, self-care exercises, and daily tools, including:

  • Writing prompts to help you honor your pain and heartbreak
  • On-the-spot practices for tough situations—like grocery store trips, the sleepless nights, and being the awkward guest
  • The art of healthy distraction and self-care
  • What you can do when you worry that moving on means letting go of love
  • Practical advice for fielding the dreaded "How are you doing?" question
  • What it means to find meaning in your loss
  • How to hold joy and grief at the same time
  • Tear-and-share resources to help you educate friends and allies
  • The Grievers Bill of Rights, and much more

Your grief, like your love, belongs to you. No one has the right to dictate, judge, or dismiss what is yours to live. How to Carry What Can't Be Fixed is a journal and everyday companion 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.
