Das neue Buch von Spiegel-Bestseller-Autorin Sheryl Sandberg: Nach Lean In schreibt sie zusammen mit dem Psychologie-Professor Adam Grant darüber, wie wir Schicksalsschläge überwinden können. »Option A gibt es nicht mehr. Also lasst uns das Beste aus Option B machen. Ich werde immer um Option A trauern. So wie Bono gesungen hat: Die Trauer endet niemals ... aber auch nicht die Liebe.« Die Welt nahm Anteil, als Sheryl Sandbergs Ehemann Dave Goldberg im Frühjahr 2015 plötzlich verstarb. Sie, die erfolgreiche COO von Facebook, und ihre Kinder fielen in ein tiefes Loch, Freude zu empfinden, schien nie mehr möglich zu sein. »Du kannst dich in den Abgrund fallen lassen, der Leere, die dein Herz füllt und deine Lungen, die dein Denken verengt und dir den Atem abschnürt. Oder du kannst versuchen, einen Sinn darin zu finden.« Dabei hat Sheryl Sandberg ihr guter Freund Adam Grant geholfen, der ihr konkrete Anleitung gab, wie Menschen nach niederschmetternden Schicksalsschlägen schrittweise wieder zurück ins Leben finden können. Jeder muss mit Verlusten leben: Wir verlieren Jobs, Ehen zerbrechen, Angehörige sterben. Doch wir können lernen mit persönlichen Katastrophen umzugehen. Gemeinsam mit Adam Grant erzählt Sheryl Sandberg offen von der Trauer um ihren Mann und dem Willen weiterzuleben. Ergänzend zu ihrer eigenen Erfahrung schildert sie neue wissenschaftliche Erkenntnissen aus der Resilienzforschung und berichtet von Menschen, die Arbeitslosigkeit und Armut, Scheidung, Krankheit und Verletzungen überstanden haben. Wir alle können resilienter werden. Und wir können anderen im Umgang mit Tragödien helfen, indem wir über Unsagbares sprechen, unsere Partnerschaften für Krisen stärken, sichere und flexible Arbeitsplätze schaffen und unsere Kinder zu eigenständigen Menschen erziehen.
