We Are Okay Free download ✓ 108 Months later alone in an emptied dorm for winter break Marin waits Mabel is coming to visit and Marin will be forced to face everything that’s been left unsaid and finally confront the loneliness that has made a home in her hear. I wonder if there s a secret current that connects people who have lost something Not in the way that everyone loses something but in the way that undoes your life undoes your self so that when you look at your face it isn t yours any This book was one of the most beautiful books I ever read Not only because the writing style is amazing but also because there is so much truth in it The truth can be beautiful it can be bittersweet it can be painful and excruciating it can hurt you but it can also give you hope The truth of We Are Okay It does all those things and even No one will know if you stay in bed all day No one will know if you wear the same sweatpants for the entire month if you eat every meal in front of television shows and use T shirts as napkins Go ahead and listen to that same song on repeat until its sound turns to nothing and you sleep the winter away There s a sadness in this book on every page in every single line It seeps from the pages it s a tangible and breathing thing It makes it hard to pick up the book and it stays throughout the entire story A silent and looming companion something to be afraid of but also something that keeps you going something that accompanies you for better or for worse There were so many things I could relate to and I think my personal experiences made up a big part of the story s appeal I m just afraid that one day something s going to catch me by surprise Stale coffee Suares of American cheese Hard tomatoes so unripe they re white in the center The most innocent things can call back the most terrible How can anyone who hasn t gone through loss even comprehend how hard it is to remain a living functioning and acting part of this world The answer is simple They can t Grief is something that changes you it turns and twists you you might look the same on the outside but on the inside you re shaken to your core Once grief found you it leaves its mark and it s something you carry with you for the rest of your life You can t get rid of it and you recognize it in people that made the same experiences But I know that there s a difference between how I used to understand things and how I do now I used to cry over a story and then close the book and it all would be over Now everything resonates sticks like a splinter festers I don t know about you but I m always glad for the people who never experienced such a profound loss They still have some sort of innocence to them they ve never been shattered like that and don t have to try to fit together the pieces of a puzzle they didn t even know existed It s not easy to come back from this kind of grief and it doesn t only take away your innocence it also steals your youth In the kitchen I put a pot of water on the stove Before the water reaches a boil he will be here I dropped pasta in and set the timer Before the then minutes are up I melted some butter I wasn t hungry but I would eat it anyway and by the time I was done he would walk through the door and call out my name sighs How I could relate to this part of the book The waiting the hoping that her grandfather would turn up The ingrained KNOWING that he wouldn t That utter and deafening sense that something is wrong but you can t do anything to make it right You re helpless desperate and frantic and you just don t know what to do Until well until someone eventually confirms your biggest fears Until someone shatters your world forever And Hannah kept saving me She saved me with never asking uestions with instead reading to me about bees and botany and evolution She saved me with clothes she loaned me and never took back She saved me with seats next to her in the dining hall with uick evasions when people asked me uestions I couldn t answer with chapters read aloud and forced trips off campus and rides to the grocery store and a pair of winter boots But thankfully there are people like Hannah out there People that watch out for you that don t turn away from you but embrace you with all your shattered parts I m pretty sure Hannah might have experienced loss too because she stuck with Marin and in my experience only people that went through it will react like that The others Well those who are fortunate will have never experienced anything like it so they ll say how sorry they are they ll try to cheer you up but when you fall into that black and endless rabbit hole of grief Well they ll eventually lose interest after a few days or weeks if you re lucky and then move on Without youIt took Marin months to speak about her loss it took me an entire year to open up and to speak about mine A year that changed me forever a year I ll never get back I really wish I would have had this book when I was seventeen and I hope and pray that everyone who experiences the very same thing will stumble upon it That they ll find solace and hope in Nina LaCour s words and that they ll eventually find the strength to move on Because the truth is Life is merciless and it doesn t pause for the livingIf I learned anything then it s this and that you ve to live your life like there will be no tomorrowMake your experiences don t regret anything recognize your loss stay true to yourself keep on fighting keep living because it s worth it Life is so worth it and you only have one chance Make it count This said I love this book with all my heart and I ll recommend it to everyone who ever experienced loss This this is your book Your voice Your thoughts on paper Read it and heal 3 Say yesA lot of my friends read this book and they all gave it a stellar rating so I m pretty curious if I ll like it too From what I could glean from the updates the title seems to be the complete opposite of what it claims and naturally this only caused me to be even intrigued We are okay Until we re notLet s find out if this is one of those stories

Summary Ù eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ✓ Nina LaCourWe Are Okay

We Are Okay Free download ✓ 108 You go through life thinking there’s so much you needUntil you leave with only your phone your wallet and a picture of your mother Marin hasn’t spoken to anyone from her old life since the day she left everything behind No one. Do you ever think about a book and then wonder what the last person who also read it and related to it was doing or if they were okayBecause right now I want to write something but I honestly don t know what to say My thoughts are lying face down on the floor with passion and I just wish someone could put a blanket over them and tell them they re fine And I swear it s like every book makes me sad in a different way but reallyit s all the same So yeah I guess I m just going to keep arranging words until something slips out and everyone claps and someone feels something I was okay just a moment ago I will learn how to be okay again xThis book was so full of sadness and loneliness that it might as well have been made of it You re reading and your heart feels like someone is crushing it so slowly with a combine harvester and you just want to lay your head down on a soft bread roll and maybe just be uiet for a bit You re reading and lying on your side and a little tear trickles into your ear which is the most tragic of all eye moisture because you re both sad and dramatic and listening to this song and thinking that your heart would actually envelop Marin in blankets if it had arms or blanketsIt goes like thisMarin s story starts and you know something tragic has happened and she s left everything behind but you don t know the whys or the hows You guess maybe it has something to do with her grandfather and the things left unspoken and unanswered like the room where she never sat foot and the picture he couldn t find Or maybe it was Mabel and somewhere between them walking to the beach in sweats with a blanket and alcohol and sitting on the shore kissing and the three thousand miles she traveled to see hersomething went terribly wrongSee at this point you don t really know Marin s story but something about her words and feelings resonates with you so accurately so intimately There s no tangible plot yet but still it feels as if someone has dipped their finger in a lake of you and made a ripple that goes on and on and on Your understand her kind of lonelyThe kind of lonely that doesn t depend on your surroundings that doesn t give a shit about the 85 unanswered messages from people who genuinely love and care about you that is engrained so deep in your soul it s like you re permeable and your own skin can t protect you from itThe kind of lonely that just makes you want to hide inside yourself reminding you that you re just an insignificant blip in the infinite structure of the universe brought into this physical reality when you wish you could just exist fleshlessly in your head so they can t see you and you can t let them downYou understand her kind of sadThe kind of sad where it s not enough to feel sad you have to feel guilty for feeling sad because you feel as if you re manipulating the people around you by being sad You re constantly berating yourself for making a separate physical entity stop the process of their life just to make sure your bricks were still up in a wall You re constantly afraid that you re being too sad too loudly too obviously that you have dug yourself into a bottomless hole of self pity and the walls are too high to see anyone else s problems but your own and you re so terrified it s going to ruin your relationship with everyoneThe kind of sad that is just not fair because you haven t earned it when your life is in an objectively good place but then it all comes back at once and there is no escape you have fallen back again into a destructive mindset and you re trying so hard but it keeps pulling you back in and you feel as if you re losing your grip on yourself and you re just going to keep shrinking until you can barely feel yourself there anyAnd something about all of these things combined still makes me feel dangerously close to tears I thought that it was likely the opposite I must have shut grief out Found it in books Cried over fiction instead of the truth The truth was unconfined unadorned There was no poetic language to it no yellow butterflies no epic floods There wasn t a town trapped underwater or generations of men with the same name destined to make the same mistakes The truth was vast enough to drown in But what this book tells you is this you will be okay That loneliness in the moment is no guarantee of loneliness in the future That feelings are transient and situations change and we just need to get through this rough patch to the place where things are better That you can be content and happy but little twinges of sadness will always seep in and it s okay because happiness has never been a fixed point in one s life and life is just a series of challenges and ups and downs and you must learn to go with the flowThat it can be hard and it s another day in the bathroom stall sobbing for five minutes Another day of giving in to depression naps in the middle of the day another day of being unable to graduate from under your duvet But then happy shows up And it s your cat purring on your lap it s curling up on the couch with a book it s a girl smiling at you on the train its a small unexpected kindness from a stranger it s a rainy night and blankets and your soul is warm it s a lovely comment a stranger left on your review it s some stupid meme your friend sent you because it reminded them of you it s finding money in your jeans pockets it s in coffee shops and bookstores and sunsets and your grandmother s embrace it s your best friend coming home from college in two weeks it s your otp being canon and an uploaded new chapter of your favorite webcomicHappy will show up And you will learn to find it even if it s not where you expected itAnd you will be okay it s a dark place not knowing It s difficult to surrender to But I guess it s where we live most of the time I guess it s where we all live so maybe it doesn t have to be so lonely Maybe I can settle into it cozy up to it make a home inside uncertainty
