I'm over him

Getting Past Your Breakup: How to Turn a Devastating Loss into the Best Thing That Ever Happened to You - Susan Elliott

Bullet Review:

DNF at 44% because i think I'm spending more time thinking about the ex reading it than learning how to move on.

This is a REALLY good book for those who have just endured break ups. Lots of good advice, stories, encouragement. That's why it gets 4 stars.

But enough time has passed from my own breakup (which, although happened in a rather abrupt, insensitive fashion, needed to happen long ago), that reading this book just makes me think of him MORE than I do on a daily basis! So instead of moving on, this book is actually making me dwell on it (not the book's fault, just where I am at in my healing). If I find I need some type of advice or comfort, I'll turn back to it, but it seems counterproductive at this point to continuing reading. I'd rather leave behind the ex and move on :)


In other news, I just wrote him a two page letter, apologizing for my faults (including how I should have broken up the relationship sooner because I didn't feel the same way about him) while also expressing how angry I was at him for lying and breaking up with me so coldly - and then I promptly shredded it. Felt GOOD.
