Product Description

Like most of us, Melanie Dale has had her share of disappointments in life. Times when her faith in Jesus and herself stretched to the breaking point due to struggles with depression, chronic pain and infertility. However, rather than dwell on these trials, she decides to laugh at them, because there are times when the only acceptable response to life is hysterical laughter. In It's Not Fair, Melanie shares her quirky and often hilarious views on dealing with the hard stuff. Sprinkled throughout are photos, drawings and stories from other women, who like Melanie, have decided to love the lives they've been given, warts and all.

Publisher's Description

Hey, you. Are you debating whether to destroy something with your bare hands or curl up on the couch for a decade or two?

 

This book will solve all of your problems. (Sheesh, that’s aiming a bit high.)

 

This book is a cup of hot coffee, a ginormous bar of chocolate, or the magical fairy that comes over and does your dishes while you lie in the fetal position clutching a fluffy pillow.

 

Sometimes when life falls apart the only acceptable response is hysterical laughter. When things get so far gone, so spectacularly a world away from any plans you made or dreams you dreamed, you feel it bubbling up inside of you and you scream, "It’s not fair!" And it isn’t. Fair is an illusion, and life is weird.

 

This book will help you laugh at life’s absurd backhands. This book is an empathetic groan of our collective unfairnesses. You might want to throw it across the room, and you might want to hug it like your new best friend. This book is about us sitting down together in our shared mess, taking a deep breath, gripping hands, looking the hard stuff in its beady little eyeballs, and bahahahaaing at it.

 

Life’s not fair, but we can learn to love this life we didn’t choose.

Author Bio

Melanie Dale is a minivan mama and total weirdo who stinks at small talk. Her laugh is a combination honk-snort, and it’s so bad that people have moved away from her in the movie theater. She adores sci-fi and superheroes and is terrified of Pinterest. Author of Women Are Scary: The Totally Awkward Adventure of Finding Mom Friends, she loves speaking, writing for Coffee+Crumbs, and advocating for Children’s HopeChest. Living in the Atlanta area with her husband and three kids, she blogs at Unexpected.org.
