Tuesdays with Morrie
by Mitch Albom
Tuesdays with Morrie is about death, but what we learn about is much more than the loss of dying but it is about love and friendship.
Mitch Albom met with his dying mentor once a week and rediscovered in his last months a person he had lost contact with. This is a tale of life, even if we have to die.
The book was gifted to me for my birthday by one of my best friends and it was one of the few that I literally had to force myself to stop reading.
The book is about Life, death, love, forgiveness, compassion and so so much more
It affected me on emotional level and gave me a reality check.
“If you hold back on the emotions--if you don't allow yourself to go all the way through them--you can never get to being detached, you're too busy being afraid. You're afraid of the pain, you're afraid of the grief. You're afraid of the vulnerability that loving entails. But by throwing yourself into these emotions, by allowing yourself to dive in, all the way, over your heard even, you experience them fully and completely.”
― Mitch Albom
Don't avoid emotions, get to know them, so you'll be able to work on you emotional intelligence later in Life
Love & forgive.
