In 2006 Jamie Tworkowski wrote a story called "To Write Love on Her Arms" about helping a friend through her struggle with drug addiction, depression, and self-injury. The piece was so hauntingly beautiful that it quickly went viral, giving birth to a nonprofit organization of the same name. Nine years later To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) is an internationally recognized leader in suicide prevention and a source of hope, encouragement, and resources for people worldwide.
Jamie's words have been shared hundreds of thousands of times online. They've shown up on T-shirts and posters and even tattoos. Now, for the first time, Jamie's writing is available in the form of a book. If You Feel too Much is a celebration of hope, wonder, and what it means to be human. From personal stories of struggling on days most people celebrate to offering words of strength and encouragement in moments of loss, the essays in this audiobook invite listeners to believe that it's okay to admit to pain and it's okay to ask for help. If You Feel Too Much is an important book from one of this generation's most important voices.

I needed this
- James "Avid reader who hates it when editors or writers butcher the English language. Honest reviewer."
So much emotion. So much felt
Jaime Tworkowski's voice giving life to his words made this book so enjoyable. I can feel every emotion that he felt when he wrote each section of this. It truly is beautiful.
It is hard to choose just one moment but when he talks about his father and their relationship during Elephant, i just broke down.
I have not listened to any of his other performances but I will definitely do so now.
The whole book is moving. The raw emotion in his words and stories makes me want to be a better person.
Everyone should read this....whether you are young, old, depressed or not, all races...everyone. Because it truly makes you see and feel and realize that we all need people in our lives and love truly is the answer to everything.
