Feeling better...slowly.

Breakups SUCK and will always suck. I was not looking a miracle cure, I was just looking something to help the healing process and help me to move on in life. I definitely found it with this book. Great, very very happy

This helped me so much

I will be eternally grateful I got this book.

After trying many books to do with breakups, this is the ONLY one that was actually realistic and effective.

I learnt a lot, was able to process my feelings, was able to eventually get over my ex and move on.

Honestly I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Thank you to the author!!!

Very grateful

I found this book when I needed it most. Confused, lost, heartbroken and unsure what to do next.

This book was so so valuable in helping me deal with my thoughts and how to process everything in a calm and mature way.

not bad

There were some useful tips, but unfortunately for me nothing i hadn't already read before. if you haven't read much on the subject this will be useful. Also, this book (and much other advice) is geared towards learning to love your new single life after a relationship, if you've been single a long time and just lost a new relationship you are RETURNING to single so its a different situation all together.

Best Breakup Book!

I can’t say enough! My ex asked for a divorce and we got one and then a year later I gave in and tried at things again. I wish that I had read this book before trying - because it gives you tools, advice and most important it answers questions and gives you confidence. I can now say no - when he attempts to contact me without feeling like I am letting him down! In the end my happiness and sanity is what’s important and this book taught me to refocus my pain back on myself. Take the time and do things that will better myself. Truly thankful to the author for writing word for word what I needed to hear. I will read this book again and again!

The beauty of rising above a break up

I appreciate so much that this book addresses how we negatively weigh ourselves down through break ups but that we can pick ourselves up and move on to bigger better things without damaging our relationships with ourselves. Wherever you’re at in the grieving process there are several tremendously helpful hints to help you get over your break-up in healthy ways and allowing yourself to take the time to heal from the pain and feeling of loss that have occurred in your own way.

I have already recommended this book to a few friends who are going through hard times with break ups and probably will reference it again when needed.

Practical and what you need to hear

Whether you're newly single or been struggling with a breakup for a while- this is a good listen. Rachels advice can apply to any relationship no matter how volatile or mild, and I found myself even analyzing past relationships from before my recent breakup. Her advice is simple but it's definitely what you need to hear to get over a breakup in a healthy manner

Very very good.

Saying it is very very good is simply because of how much it helped me get over what was quite a horrific breakup.

Got over it.

I was really really struggling with my breakup (lonely, angry, confused, embarassed etc etc). This book was the first step in me REALLY getting over it. At one stage I didn't think it was possible, but I really am over it now and I credit this book with doing that for me.

Ok,

long winded for me, repetitive, could of done with some metaphors to illustrate points, no real world examples and expensive.
