This book dives into depths of feelings that are not often embraced in our troubled world! Many tears dropped into its essays and poems. I recommend it to, not only those who are interested in personal growth, but every human being on earth. I hope it touches your Heart. "Healing the world begins and finishes with the healing of our own individual Hearts.""Embracing Sadness" grew from my "Embracing Feelings" book, which was completed in 1999 and then destroyed in a fire in 2001.
