In Real Life: Preparing for the 7 Worst Days of Your Life, bestselling author and talk show host Dr. Phil McGraw suggests how to confront what he believes are the seven most common critical days that you or a loved one are likely to face: the day that you or someone you love has their heart shattered by death, divorce, or losing something of great value; the day that you realize you have lived your life as a sellout and that every choice you have made up until this point was dictated by other people's expectations, not based on your own goals and desires; the day that the pressures of balancing your responsibilities and needs, along with life's demands, have become way too overwhelming, and you realize that you are in way over your head; the day that your body or that of someone you love breaks down because of illness, trauma, or disease; the day that the mind breaks down and betrays you or someone you love; the day that addiction takes over, and you or your loved one look a powerful destroyer in the face and realize that you are not in control; the day that you or someone you love lose the purpose, compass, and connection to meaning in life and have no answer to the question "Why?"

This book actually gave me some good advice on dealing with loss. I only wish that I had found it earlier. I would recommend everyone read this book because the advise it gives could help you through any number of issues you may or will experience.
