Publisher's Summary

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 know what it is like to feel too much. I know crippling sadness. Jamie encouraged me to keep living & hoping despite my sadness. You are not alone. If you too feel deeply then listen to this book, it's worth your time.

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.


What was one of the most memorable moments of If You Feel Too Much?

It is hard to choose just one moment but when he talks about his father and their relationship during Elephant, i just broke down.
