(Warning: this post has nothing to do with beauty. )Four of my friends have been going through breakups in the last month. They have been so depressed and it kills me to see them like that. I’m an incredibly sensitive person (could be because I’m a Cancer) so I’ve been trying to be there for my buddies the best I can by e-mailing them funny stories, jokes, taking them to their favorite restaurants- nothing seems to work. Anyway, while I was in Chicago, I remembered a book that I had read a while back called ‘It’s Called a Break-Up Because It’s Broken.”
I immediately bought each of them four copies and had them promptly fedexed. I re-read the book myself, and had to recommend it to you guys. This has to be one of the best books ever written for anyone going through a break-up. It’s written by the same guy who wrote the book “He’s Just Not that Into You” but this time his wife is a cowriter. The book is really empowering and you honestly feel like they are talking to you and helping you go through the break-up. It’s also one of the funniest books I’ve read. They include something called “Psyho Confessionals” where readers write about the crazy things that they did after their breakups. (I’ve got my own stories for days.) But it also makes you aware that although a break-up is difficult, it’s not the end of your world, or your life and it gives you this message in an incredibly humorous way. (Darnit, because it was so effective in making me feel like I didn’t need anyone, I was tempted to dump my boyfriend of four years after reading this, lol, j/k). If you know someone going through a break-up or you yourself are going though one, get this book, but if you don’t get it, remember this advice that mommy always told me: “No one should ever control your happiness, and if someone else doesn’t realize how wonderful you are then something is wrong with them not with you.”
Do you have any psycho confessionals?
What do you do to get over a break-up?
