How to Make Friends with the Dark

This book is heart-wrenching and you just can’t help but feel it all. The author did a really good job writing this book. I will definitely say to step back and take a break from this book regularly. It does take a toll when you read it. I had to stop every 50 pages or so with some of the topics that are brought up in the book. Some of it was triggering for me which made this book hit a little harder than usual.

Let me also give you a heads up to the tears that will fall towards the end of this book. The rest of the story is sad but the ending hits a little differently and tears will spring forward a little quicker than you anticipate. Also, do yourself a service and read the author’s note. I usually just skim these but something made me actually read this one and I loved it. It was a nice come down from the book for me.

I will say this book was a nice read for Mental Health Awareness month. It is May and the hashtag is #breakthestigma. Find something to enjoy or someone to share with and enjoy life to its fullest. Be kind to yourself and others and remember to always practice self care.

Five out of five stars. Cheers.
