5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional healing for broken hearts - excellent!, May 24, 2000
This review is from: How to Survive the Loss of a Love (Paperback)
Let's face it, abandonment hurts. There would be more charity in murder. But, if your heart has been broken, if you are the one who wanted the relationship to work, if you are the one left behind - this is the perfect book for you. Buy it.
In it you will find short, one page chapters chock full of important reminders, proverbs, advice and practical suggestions. Throughout the message is constant - let yourself hurt, take responsibility for your own pain and your own healing, you will survive, you will smile again, life really is worth living.
Accompanying every chapter is a short, one page, free verse poem. Nothing has ever helped me feel more than these did.
I read most of this book while sitting in a city park one sunny, Sunday afternoon. All around me were families playing with their children. Inside I was bleeding, and frequently crying. It took at least two more years to get over being dumped, but my healing started that day. Maybe your's will, too.

It has been almost 5 months and still going through all the ugly feelings of being "left behind". You are not alone.

This book was recommended to me in 1983 when my husband died. I read it more times than I could possibly count .... there are a few excerpts that always gave me a sense of peace and contentment. I've given this book to several friends when their husbands died. Recently, I recommended a friend try grief counseling. She took my advice and told me that "How to Survive the Loss of a Love" was on the top of the recommended reading list for the class.

The last paragraph of your review made me cry. I can relate very much to the pain you expressed.
