<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Best Seller<br /><br />From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 <i>New York Times</i> best-selling authors of <i>Lean In </i>and <i>Originals:</i> a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.</b><br />  <br /> After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build. <br /> <i> Option B </i>combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But <i>Option B </i>goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.<br /> Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. <i>Option B </i>illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.<br /> We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.

A personal accounting of a suicide, and its devastating aftermath. It is the story of my husband, who was an intelligent, wise and loving human being. A great father! A good friend to everyone he met. A strong man crushed by illness, cancer and a surgery that was complicated in its recovery, leading to physical weakness, poor health and loss of independence. A man who could not reconcile this new image of himself when he had always been so strong, energetic. and such a hard worker. It left him completely overwhelmed and suffering deep depression. So unexpected and unbelievable! To all those who have been left behind as survivors, who have been left to mourn a death that should not have been...to pick up the pieces and go on living. All of this coming at a time in our history, when you would think that we should know.. and be able to help. Yet the stigma of it remains. Mental illness, including depression, is still deeply routed in suspicion and is often thought of as a personal problem; one that the sufferer has control of and can overcome if he tries hard enough. Ignorance demands that the victim is at fault and we have to deal with it. Such common misconceptions and beliefs need to be exposed and refuted. Medical knowledge and social education need to merge and move forward to create change and provide a positive influence on our 21st century way of thinking. All lofty aspirations and high expectations. However, the real reason for this story is to tell you about the grief and anguish I went through after I lost my husband, my love, to suicide. It's as simple, and as hard as that. You just never think that it can happen to you...

Cuando nos encontramos perdidos en medio de la nada cualquier destello de luz, por fugaz que sea, nos ayuda a subir un peldaño, a respirar hondo, a sintonizar con la esperanza, a sentirnos menos solos. En este libro, el lector encontrará buena parte de los destellos que han iluminado el camino de la autora desde que en 1998 su mundo explotara en mil pedazos al morir su hijo Ignasi. Nadie es el mismo después de la muerte de un ser inmensamente amado. Es imposible ser el de antes, pero sí tenemos la oportunidad de elegir qué queremos que florezca en nuestra vida: ¿la gratitud por lo vivido o la amargura por lo que nos parece que hemos perdido? Si escogemos a pesar de todo mantener el corazón abierto al amor, si estamos dispuestos a sentir el dolor, pero también la alegría, es muy posible que nuestra existencia adquiera sentido de nuevo. Como señala la autora de estas conmovedoras páginas, «si una sola de las palabras aquí escritas llega y reconforta un corazón herido me sentiré inmensamente agradecida porque, en el fondo, todos somos uno y, cuanto más cariño damos, más recibimos».

“Your husband has to be rushed to OR. He needs to have a chest tube put in to drain pleural fluid. Every one we’ve seen like this is malignant. Don’t you have family in New Jersey? We think you’d better go back there.”<br />Thus begins the first step of the wanderings—from diagnosis, through death, and followed by the first two years of widowhood. Grief is multiplied. Within several weeks, her family of eight—daughters, sons-in- law, grandchildren, and beloved twelve-year-old cat—had shrunk to two.<br />Based on daily journal entries, this is a present-tense, transparent, honest journey of a woman’s psychological and theological search for meaning, wholeness, and healing. The journal ritual connects her to God and becomes her friend, counselor, and gateway to self-awareness, as she explores the subconscious in meditation, prayer, and dreamwork.<br />In addition to love of God and family, love of Chincoteague Island permeates the story. Water, sky, birds in abundance are messengers of healing which inspire feelings of joy and gratitude in the midst of tears.<br />This is a story of hope. It leads the reader on a journey through a wilderness of pain, confusion, and feelings of betrayal to a place of confidence revealing that there is life after death—death of a beloved or death of a dream. The grace, power, and love of God is confidently asserted to be more than sufficient to bring us to experience—along with Julian of Norwich—that all is well and all manner of things shall be well.
