Book Review, It's Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn't Choose

Title: It's Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn't Choose

Author: Melanie Dale


Summary:

Hey, you. Are you debating whether to destroy something with your bare hands or curl up on the couch for a decade or two?

 This book will solve all of your problems. (Sheesh, that’s aiming a bit high.)


 This book is a cup of hot coffee, a ginormous bar of chocolate, or the magical fairy that comes over and does your dishes while you lie in the fetal position clutching a fluffy pillow.


Sometimes when life falls apart the only acceptable response is hysterical laughter. When things get so far gone, so spectacularly a world away from any plans you made or dreams you dreamed, you feel it bubbling up inside of you and you scream, “It’s not fair!” And it isn’t. Fair is an illusion, and life is weird.

 This book will help you laugh at life’s absurd backhands. This book is an empathetic groan of our collective unfairnesses. You might want to throw it across the room, and you might want to hug it like your new best friend. This book is about us sitting down together in our shared mess, taking a deep breath, gripping hands, looking the hard stuff in its beady little eyeballs, and bahahahaaing at it.


Life’s not fair, but we can learn to love this life we didn’t choose.

My Reaction:

This book keeps things so real! Questions, doubts, trials of life - all right here. Filled with heartwarming stories, reassuring scripture and plain ol' good advice. I couldn't put it down!


This book reminds you that you aren't the only one in a situation, and reminds you that you choose your reaction to any situation. Your attitude about an issue is key.


I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers <http://booklookbloggers.com> book review bloggers program. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
