What did you love best about Second Firsts?
The way Christina advises how to approach life after loss is perfect. It has really helped me reengage in my life after my wife passed and also helped me change my job after 16 years!
What other book might you compare Second Firsts to and why?
Nothing compares to Second Firsts!
What about Christina Rasmussen’s performance did you like?
She is very articulate in her readings. You truly get a grasp of the concepts quickly.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from Second Firsts?
I now know where I end up going when I am stuck. The waiting room.
Any additional comments?
A must listen!

I listened to this audio book recently, as I was suffering from one of my frequent bouts of insomnia. I've lived my life for the last 15 years...completely empty and suffering. Long Blue Line: Based on a True Story is my own personal memoir and it doesn't have an ending with closure for the reader, and the same has been true for my life (as the author).
Society has responded to my pain by telling me that I have depression, anxiety, and pretty much any other mental illness you can think of.
Frustrated and exhausted, I was laying in bed an hoping that I could find something - anything - to help me find some sort of answers or relief.
For the first time in my life, this book gave me solid answers that made sense. Also, for the first time in my life, I was able to accept and understand that I have not been able to move beyond my grief, even after all of the years have gone by. I have been sitting in the "waiting room" as the author calls it, and I have not allowed myself to transition from my previous life into my new life. The author points out that many of us are living in the "waiting room", mistaking this "gap" for our new life. It's living in a gap that's in-between transitioning, and this gap is a constant state of misery and lifeless existence.
I truly believe that anyone could benefit from reading this book. The author comes from a place of educational knowledge, practical knowledge as well as deeply insightful knowledge as she has experienced loss first-hand herself.
