Suggested by my sib, Jenna, I ordered If You Feel Too Much by Jamie Tworkowski. By reading the title, I knew this was going to begin and end in tears- color me sensitive.
If You Feel Too Much is a collective of stories about moments, holidays, people, feelings- I’m 100% sure there will be a story that you will resonate with. Life, death, love, happy, sad- it’s all there, it’s real and raw. I admire you, Jamie, for being so vulnerable so publicly. It is one facet of bravery that I have yet to open the door to. I might have cracked and peeked at it, but being that vulnerable…woof.
If you’re into “feeling the feels,” this is your book. It really did make me think about how I am with people and my own story. If anything, this book is a reminder. A reminder that you’re alive, you’re not alone and thank God everyday when you get to walk through life with incredible people. Thank those incredible people, especially.

Love is a thousand things, but at the center is a choice. It is a choice to love people.
You have made known your request for a hundred different yesterdays, but the sun keeps rising on this thing that has never been known…Today is the best day to live.
We are not perfect. We are not machines. We make mistakes. We need compassion. We need grace. We need help sometimes. We need other people.
