This product was recommended by Eevi Jones from Braving The World

New Beginnings is an illustrated and heartfelt book for the soul for anyone who is about to enter a new chapter in life, while leaving the old one behind. Starting over is hard. Getting over someone is hard. Whether it’s through divorce, separation, or estrangement – new beginnings are often intertwined with hurt, doubt, and many shed tears. But new beginnings also bring hope, joy, and self-love, providing us with an opportunity to find, rediscover, and love our own true selves. Whatever chapter we may be closing and leaving behind, the new phase we are about to enter has so much beauty in store for us! We just have to allow it into our lives. And this book is a beautiful reminder to do just that.

True Things About Me by Deborah Davies

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

Here’s something I believe in. Reading a self-help book that pontificates about things that you should do, and those that you shouldn’t when you are going through a breakup actually sucks. No one, even the best self-help magicians, has mastered the art of letting go of someone. But reading a novel based around the same issue does help to an extent. That’s why I recommend reading this book. The novel is based around a woman whose life goes into a downward spiral due to a romantic relationship that ended in bad taste. I read the novel while going through the same thing. I identified with every twist and turn, every up and down, and every bad decision she made when trying to pull herself up. While the novel doesn’t tell what to do as self-help books will, it provides you with a perfectly reasonable example of how not to do things and an amazing inspiration from the protagonist on how to recover from a debilitating breakup.

Forgiving What You Can’t Forget by Lysa TerKeurst

This product was recommended by Alina Clark from CocoDoc

If possible, this book is even more powerful than her last. It is helped me come to terms with deep feelings of anger and resentment that have plagued me for years. As I deal with cancer and marital woes in the midst of a pandemic, I have ironcially found the most peace I have felt in years. I savored each chapter of this book at it helped me peel back the layers on all the many emotions I was experiencing and make important steps towards healing. I highly recommend.

When the Stars Lead to You by Ronni Davis

This book is so much more than a romance novel. It is about pain, depression, racism, struggles, sorrow and evokes so many emotions all at once. The characters are so well written that you almost feel that you know them. When the stars lead to you tackles very complex topics but still is a refreshing read. It gives you enough reason to not fall in love again with someone that hurt you, gives you strength to get over them, and also encourages you to hold on to someone you love.
