By Kristi H. McDaniel on June 24, 2009
Format: Paperback
I have been dealing with a difficult breakup from my boyfriend and I did not find this book very helpful for dealing with MY situation. Perhaps this book would have been more helpful when my relationships ended with the jerks I dated PRIOR to my current ex. In my opinion this book is helpful only if you were in an abusive or unhealthy relationship. My exboyfriend treated me well and with kindness. He moved to a new town for his job and it worked out well until he had a hard time dealing with the distance and just stopped calling and texting one day. That is it. One day 10 to 15 txts a day about how awesome I am or what he ate for dinner and then the next BOOM nothing. He had the problem, he did not handle the breakup well, but it is not like there is an easy way to breakup with someone. This book expects you to be angry, most people are angry after they get their heart broken. I do not feel that it gives you enough time to greive your loss and come to a healthy resolution about what happened to you. I did NOT find this workbook helpful and felt WORSE after I used it. I found that accepting the loss was difficult and takes time. I used the opportunity to make my life better and THAT was the only thing that helped me.

OK Ladies, if you are looking at this book, you are probably going through a break-up. So, in the words of Lisa Steadman, Congratulations on your break-up! And, I'd like to add, congratulations on finding this workbook. I wish I could give a copy to every woman going through a break-up (along with those who are staying in bad relationships out of fear of going through the break-up). I know this sounds crazy, but you just have no idea how amazing and meaningful a break-up can be until you've gone through it with the help of Lisa Steadman. If you don't believe me, try it.

If you are anything like I was when I was going through my recent break-up, you have that horrible pit in your stomach, overwhelming anxiety, deep sadness, anger, a million questions, and "break-up ADD" (can't concentrate on anything). You can't sleep and the bags under your eyes could fit a week's worth of groceries (but you have no appetite). Well, I am here to promise you (yes, I really do promise!) that it does get better, even better than you are imagining right now, and this workbook is the key not just to surviving your break-up, but thriving. I don't know a less cheezy way to put it. Lisa Steadman's workbook will be your biggest cheerleader, guide, teacher, and friend, as you heal your wounds, remember what an amazing woman you are, and realize how great life can be without him. This workbook not only shows you how to "rock your recovery", but also how to do it in a short period of time so that you can get on with soaking up all that life has to offer. And my favorite part is that in the process of becoming all that you are, you are preparing yourself for nothing short of an amazing love the next time around, which gets me so excited!

This workbook has been a true gift and could not have arrived at a better time for me. I love how Lisa Steadman acknowledges and incorporates into her workbook that it takes 21 days to break a habit and conveniently, this book has a 21-day plan. The author never made me feel bad about myself if I didn't fully complete that day's goal; as a matter of fact, she encourages even baby steps and acknowledges that EVERYONE will have a setback (or 2 or 3....). This book is a MUST read for anyone going through a break-up.
