Getting Through What You Can't Get Over: Stories, Tips, and Inspiration to Help You Move Past Your Pain into Lasting Freedom by Anita Agers-Brooks is an inspirational read about getting past traumatic life issues. The book tells the true stories of real people’s overwhelming hardships – whether abuse, serious illness, financial troubles, death of a loved one, etc. – and shows how each person overcame and moved past the situation (instead of letting it consume them). In the introduction, the author states: “None of us wants to learn from painful experiences, but life doesn’t always offer us a choice. We are challenged early and often with plenty of adversity…so how in the world do we survive when life won’t leave us in peace?” At the end of each chapter (which tells a different person’s story), the author includes some helpful sections, including Insider Insights, Practical Help, Spiritual Comfort and a Guided Prayer to allow readers to apply the information to their own personal healing and lives.
I found this book to be a very insightful and inspirational read. The author explains (in a clear and easy-to-follow format) how to get through a traumatic experience and rise above it to live a positive, happy life (no matter what the past). She gently reminds readers that God does not abandon people when life gets tough; He is there right beside us, helping us to get through it. I liked how she presented a wide variety of challenges, such as death, illness, financial problems, and abuse to show that different difficulties affect people in different ways, but there is a way to overcome all of it. I think this book would be very beneficial to anyone going through a difficult time.
