I needed it - so do you
on 8 July 2013
Harsh but fair - have recommended to friends and family since. I read this about a month after separating from my partner after nearly 8 years. The book TOTALLY changed how i felt about the situation - yes, it's american and a bit 'you go girlfriend' and i usually vomit at the mere thought of that sort of bulls*it! But this was different, it seemed sensible - like the sort of 'common sense' therapy that all of your friends are too afraid to give you.
It helps to know other people have beent here too, and when you are feeling like nothing in the world will ever make you feel better, this will pick you up and make you say 'actually - it's happened, i need to get the hell on with my life not keep punishing myself'.
Honestly - i spouted so much CR&p after reading this book, but my friends and family noticed the change in me - with a few weeks i had got myself my own flat, and a whole new out look on life.
It's still in my bedside drawer, hidden away for those down times that inevitably surface, but it totally changed my healing process for the better.
Honestly if you feel worse than you ever have, what harm will getting this book do you? You can't feel any worse right?
I really really would strongly recommend it. Short relationship, long relationship, marriage - even if you are just constantly pining after someone it was over with years ago. This book will show you how to get past that.
Failing that, just eat ice cream and feel sorry for yourself the rest of your life and let him/her win.. your choice. You have to help yourself, and if you can't do that off your own back then buy this book and get the kick up the a%$e you really need!!
:D good luck!
