Getting Past Your Breakup

by Susan J Elliott


Most of us have been through a painful breakup and found ourselves indulging in behaviors that our rational self would call out as 'crazy.' The fact is, no one is quite themselves after a traumatic event and our self-esteem sometimes needs committed work.

As she explains through the tale of her own big breakup, author, lawyer, and media commentator Susan J. Elliot has been there and done that. Through her popular blog Getting Past Yourself, public seminars, and private grief counseling, Elliot has helped thousands to bounce back better after a setback.

She believes that anyone can change their life for the better, and pulls no punches when it comes to the work required. Getting Past Your Breakup uncovers ways of shedding light on our patterns to better crush them – and the solution to turning loss into gain.
