With an in-your-face style, Rogers walks us through the worst parts of a breakup. She allows us to cry, even encourages it! She explains how to throw a raging pity party, but also how to get back up after the emotional fall. With detailed and very thoughtful ideas (and even new ice cream flavors to try), Rogers has even created a wonderful itinerary for said pity party. But once those tears are dried and the cookie crumbs are swept up, she helps us learn how to move on and become stronger.
Next, Rogers details each type of man that women are drawn to (and most likely to break our hearts), why we fall for them, their excuses for wanting to end the relationship, and even how to handle “the other woman”. The best part about all of this, true life excerpts from women just like you and workbook exercises that will seriously help heal your torn, weak and stomped on heart. And in the end, Rogers emphasizes the importance of self-worth and the uselessness of self-deprecation.
With funny anecdotes, personal experience and a no-nonsense approach, this book is a humorous necessity for any woman with a gaping wound in her heart. Personally, this book couldn’t have come at a better time. Coming out of a break-up myself, but one of a slightly different caliber (I left willingly with dignity and no love left for him), this book helped in ways I thought I already had handled. If you are still weeping into your cheesecake and stalking him on Facebook, I’m 100 percent positive this book will help you so much more.
The best part too, is Rogers writes to convince us newly single, sad and lonely women that we are worth something. She strives to teach us how to regain our confidence and embrace our worth. We will find Mr. Right (and she even has tips to help!). And she teaches us how to pass up Mr. Not So Right, Mr. Right Now, or Mr. Totally Wrong.
These are lessons we all need to learn, so light some candles, pour a glass of wine (or scotch, or milk, or whatever fits your fancy) and crack open Debra Rogers’ book. Written with class and eloquence, this book also has enough hilarity to make you laugh so hard you’ll forget what (or whom) you were sad about in the first place.
This isn’t the end, it’s just a new beginning. So, what are you waiting for? Quit obsessing and missing him, start working toward a better you. Isn’t it time you realize that really, He Did You A Favor?
Guest Reviewer: Katie Kelly
A copy of this book was provided for review and there was no monetary compensation.
Ms. Rogers brings women from the point of where they feel like “rubbish” or unwanted to the potential that God wants of them.
I do appreciate that this is written from Ms. Rogers own experience, and that gains the readers trust and gives them the feeling that they aren’t alone in this situation.
I like the tips that are given in this book, and the one quote” So, what if the guy who dumped you did you a huge favor? That, in fact he helped you (even if it wasn’t intentional) because your relationship with him was complete and it was time to move on to someone better?” Great thought, and very true, you don’t want to get stuck with someone who will in the long run bring you down in life.
If you or know of anyone going through a breakup this is an excellent book to help you through it. It is full of many “helps” and good pointers.
