The Frisky 30 Day Breakup Guide
The book does a great job of breaking down the seemingly small day-to-day tasks and more obvious steps you should take to move on after a break-up, yet do not for fear of shutting out the past. Memories should stay in the past, and can be remembered fondly at the appropriate time, but holding onto them too closely won't do any good for the recovery process. Knowing what to do to get beyond those memories and actually doing it is far easier said than done. As Jamie says, hindsight is always 20/20. It ends up being the small tasks and accomplishments that get you back on your feet and back into your own personal routine. In the long run, being independent will be a huge help for stability in the next relationship, and she covers some great steps to get there rather than serial dating to get back at your ex or trying to rekindle an unhealthy relationship. Overall it's a great checklist of things that you won't think of until the fog has lifted.
I thought the book was hysterical, and a quick light read. I've passed my copy on to a friend in need and imagine I'll be gifting it as need be since laughter is the best medicine of all and a great first step.
