When someone loses someone or something they love, there’s no cookie-cutter, one-size fits all “fix” that will magically take their pain away. Each person grieves, heals, and processes trials and tribulations differently. In Breaking Sad, Shelly Fisher and Jennifer Jones explore everything from the loss of a loved one, the loss of a job, and the loss of health, delving into personal experiences from people on the other side of all of our good intentions to share some insight regarding the questions we’re unable to ask: How do I help? Is it better to say nothing? Should I share what my experience was like?The pages of this book are lined with real stories and real feedback to those questions and more. Amongst our many differences lies a similar need for understanding, comfort, and support; Breaking Sad is the start of the conversation that will get us all to a place where we can offer these things to people when they need it most.
