Our interview with Amy Morin, the author of the book ’13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do’.

When Amy was 23 years old, she went to a basketball game with her mother. Within twenty-four hours, her happy, healthy, vibrant mother died suddenly of a brain aneurysm. After years of sorrow and grief, on the third anniversary of her mother’s passing, she took her new husband to the same basketball stadium to remember her mother. When they got home, Lincoln complained of back pain. Within minutes, he collapsed and had a heart attack. An ambulance took him to hospital, but Lincoln was already gone.

Amy learned that “time doesn’t heal anything”. Things don’t magically get better if we wait long enough; it’s about how we choose to deal with the grief.

Years later, not long after she’d eventually remarried, he new father-in-law was diagnosed with terminal cancer. That is when Amy wrote a little blog post listing the ’13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do’. The post went viral and she later fleshed out her list into a book with practical steps to avoid these 13 Things and improve our mental strength.
