HOW TO BE SAD Everything I've Learned About Getting Happier by Being Sad

by | Read by Helen Russell

Personal Growth • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

A journalist and author of books on happiness offers a well-researched, heartfelt guide to accepting and recovering from sadness. The native Englishwoman has a pleasing voice and narrates with a natural connection to her message. She is a friendly, authentic observer of her own journey with sadness and an intelligent reporter of how researchers, professionals, and others view sadness and depression. What she's actually encouraging is emotional integration--being respectful of the sadness we feel rather than staying conflicted about it and thereby not letting it resolve on its own terms. The poignancy of her own recovery from a variety of tragic losses serves her message well without dominating the narrative. Her personal disclosures leave an inspiring afterglow that will give listeners faith they can recover from periods of sadness. T.W. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
