What we're about

This is a book and discussion group for introverts, melancholics, those experiencing depression or difficulty, and anyone tired of the “happiness/success contest.”

We are a supportive group for learning, community, self-acceptance and embracing all emotions. Meetings are a safe space for letting out whatever is on your mind!

Click on this link (https://www.meetup.com/Sad-Is-Okay/messages/boards/) to see all messages that have gone out to members about upcoming meetings and books we are reading, and on this link (https://www.meetup.com/Sad-Is-Okay/about/) to see outlines of the books we have read and discussed.

The first part of each meeting will be discussion of the book-of-the-month, and the second part will be personal sharing, which is optional, but arguably the best part!

This is an experimental group - come join the fun as we figure out how deep souls can relate and create a community that satisfies our need for authentic connection and keeping it real!

Please check out one of our meetings ... People do not always RSVP, so the "head count" may be low, but we will be there!
