Im going through a heart-wrenching breakup. I thought I was going to marry this man. I realize now how toxic it was, but I would never have left had he not ended it. I tried and tried and tried to make it work, and exhausted myself in the process. I feel broken. I allowed it to break me. That sounds so silly and ridiculous. Im a great person with a lot going for me and I let this man BREAK ME. I feel much better after reading this and stronger. Its going to take time, and I may have to read this book several more times, but I will heal and find myself again. Im no longer feeling hopeless.
If you have a beautiful new or even classic designer bag would you place messy cosmetics or too many items in it that would bring that Birkin or LV to ruin? Of course not! Then why would you murk the sunshine of a brand new day with all of it's infinite possibilities with an unrealized dream? This book highlights the everyday realities behind what it's like to be single in the 2010s. It's been a while since I read it. Mandy's everyday tell-it-like it is mantra provides the sauce for the conversation. You'll feel like your sitting in her condo having girl talk or better yet on the terrace laying it all out with libations. The sass comes from a so what attitude. I'm single/divorced/dreaming/ or fill in the blank, so what! In general Mandy exhorts us not to live in the past and not to carry it around like an overstuffed bag. Think about it.
I first looked into this book because I was going through a tough time letting go of an ex. I didn't want to read up on a book that would make me more bitter than I already am, I wanted to heal and move on. I came across Mandy & her books, and I saw that she was a woman of God as well which is something I need to get back into my life. This book helped me realize my worth, helped me see that if things aren't meant to be, don't try to force them, and also to not fall too fast when getting back into dating. My sister is also going through a tough time with an abusive ex and I'm sending her this book right now. A must read!
Me and my husband had just seperated and i was devastated.... I was so miserable. All i could think about was how to get us back together. SOme how i came across this book it had to be from God... Im not even a reader but i couldnt put it down. I purchased it on my phone and every chance that i had i was reading it... In the bathroom , waiting in line, getting my hair done, etc.... This book is realistic and just plainly tells you to let go and move on and gives you hope. I wish i knew this author personally, i would love to have her on speed dial :) I have a new lease on life since reading this book. I will recommend it to every one, men and women!!!
Great read. I am a single woman, strong, capable ... but still looking for plenty, and I purchased this book to get another perspective. Well, I got the perspective I was seeking, and further affirmed what I had been tossing around ... time to move forward. There is plenty more that I got out of this book, but why spoil it for every one else. One thing I will say is this, I suggest men read this book to, or rather, men who want to learn how to understand and treat women. I will often read articles meant for men to learn what they think, want, desire ... men, this book word be a good start if you want to get smarter about women.
There's better books out there, like The Smart Girl's Guide... from the author who wrote He's Just Not That Into You. This book seemed a bit corny and very cliché, so many things that she was writing was just common sense and not enlightening to me, and also she came off as wanting to be humorous but didn't seem that funny to me.
Written with compassion, humor and a healthy dose of reality, this book helped me take a hard look at my "relationship", and after the initial embarrassment of feeling like her story about her big failed relationship was plucked directly from my life, it gave me a chance to see what was right In front of me all the time. Ouch. It was a direct hit to the heart, but I certainly needed it, and she has great advice for getting through the pain and out to a healthy life on the other side, open for what life will bring next. Never preachy or judgmental, she strikes the perfect tone of a good friend and makes the bitter pill of figuring out how to walk away from someone you thought was the one easier to swallow. Thank you for this book!
I am sorry I am Thai and my English is not so good. So if I write something in English wrong please accept me apologize. I brought like 10 books about how to deal with my feelings after the most terrible breaking up. This book is the first book which encourages me the best. And also this is the first time I write the review cause I am always shy to write in English. After I read this book I feel like I can breath in the fresh air again. I feel like to let go of something which is useless to my life for so long. The most important thing is it makes me realize it's better to let go of somebody who doesn't love really love me, who said he loved me but he wasn't here with me.
I finished this book and I felt so great about myself and I get better and better everything. There is a hope again :)
