The subtitle of this book tells it all - “How to Turn a Devastating Loss Into the Best Thing That Ever Happened to You.” While many in the heart-wrenching throes of a breakup might be unable to even comprehend that statement, Susan J. Elliott delivers the goods with a book that can help anyone get past a broken heart, and be stronger for it.
There is, according to Elliott, a specific road map to healing a hurt heart, and she provides it by showing the rules of disengaging, how to work through grief and fear, move beyond patterns of past relationships, stop obsessing about the one who got away, and get on with putting the control of your life back where it belongs…in your own hands and heart. The book provides solid, usable information told with compassionate understanding that really jumpstarts a heart that is on standby. As a motivational speaker and grief counselor, Elliott understands the steps that one goes through in order to fully grieve a loss, even a loss of love, and she really shows how to move beyond that grief by first processing, not ignoring it.
This book is valuable to anyone struggling to get past a loss, or get over those lousy behaviors and thought patterns that seem to keep leading to broken relationships. The tools are priceless, and the inspiration to come out on top is what really makes this book stand out in the ocean of other self-help titles out there.
You can get past a breakup, no matter how devastating, and live to tell about it. Not only that, you can come out better, happier, stronger and more focused. You can take back your life and follow your dreams again. Almost makes you want to find fifty ways to leave your lover!
