    I really enjoyed this book. He is so real and authentic the way he discusses the feelings that come from bad life experiences. I always felt peace inside after reading from this book. I like how he references both the Bible and secular sources. The only thing I wish he had included was a bit more detail on the experience that led him to write this book, but it is understandable why he may have chosen not to. If you have experienced something that feels insurmountable, I recommend this book.

    It really helped me through my ordeal in life. i learned a lot about things I'll never get over, but that I will be able to live with once I accept, forgive, stop and begin again.

    This book was a disappointment. It doesn't seem inspired by the Holy Spirit at all. In fact He's never really mentioned at all. This seems to be an effort the author made in his own strength using psychiatric exercises to control anger and things like that. Grace is mentioned but not quite enough in my opinion. Getting past things we'll never get over takes a lot more than changing our thinking. We can't successfully change our thinking anyways. The Holy Spirit must renew our minds and transform us by the washing of the Word. We can get past what we can't get over with the grace of God.Another issue I have with this author and his book is that he talks about his wife being brutally beaten by an armed robber in their home. She got out and none of her neighbors would let her in their homes. They ignored her. The author goes on and on about his personal issues which seem petty in the light of what his wife suffered. I would have much rather have read his wife's story of how she got past what she'll never get over. I'd like to hear how she coped and what got her through. She should have written this book instead of her husband.

    I'll sum this 220+ book up in a sentence. Trust in God, forgive others, and get a different perspective on your issues.

    Just another book with the initially hidden message, convert to Christianity & all your true problems will be solvedI'm tired of these books pretending to be genuinely therapeutic for issues like grief, or sense of loss, self discovery, or self-improvement... ways to be a better person to yourself & those around you, etc) only to find that the authors true mission isn't to offer practical or actual help or answers the reader might actually benefit from, but rather to push his/her true agenda, religious conversion.

    This book is all about moving towards acceptance...I've only given it a middle rating because I've read so many things with similar theories. It does work. Kind of? I think the most important lesson I learnt from this was that in order to reach a place of acceptance a person needs to stop doing things that mean they relieve or recreate the emotions because ultimately that is exactly whats maintaining the grip on the thing you cant let go....I hope this book brings people some light <3

    This is a very good book, and has helped me a lot. It's from the prospect of someone who has dealt with Depression himself, I finding that I listened to people that have been through a experience like this and have come through the other end. I rarely give a book 5 Stars. But this one totally deserves. I would highly recommend to anyone struggling with past hurt or issues.

    Getting Past What You'll Never Get OverHelpful information about understanding there are things in our lives we never get over. To progress to acceptance we must quit reliving the hurt, emotion, etc. Before we can move on with life anew. A book worth reading for all.

    I think it took me until halfway through...I think it took me until halfway through the book before I started to feel like it was worth my time to finish it, probably because I was hoping for something that was more therapeutic.

    A few good tidbits but it took me forever to read this slender little paperback and that's always a sign. Not bad, just not enough. In the vein of advice being worth what you pay for it, I got my 50 cents worth.

    Not much scripture. Just good suggestions based on authors experience. Worth at least skimming through if you're experiencing suffering and want some strategies to help you process through stuff.

    This was an ok book. I liked some of the stories, but I skimmed some, too. This isn't a very useful how-to grief book. But I finished it so it wasn't a terrible read either.

    I'm not sure how this ended up on my Nook, but I don't like these types of books (self-help). At about halfway through reading it, I started skimming to finish it.

    I took a few tidbits of helpful information away from this book but for the most part I found it tedious and not very helpful.

    I highly recommend this book! Helpful, real tools to help you get past what you'll never get over --all while pointing to Christ.

    Much better than expected. Bible based without being preachy. There were some insightful takeaway's that I found worthwhile. Wish now I'd highlighted.
