Heartbroken after divorce, a breakup, a death, or the loss of friendship, health, a job, or a dream? Abandonment breaks our hearts in subtle ways, too, when we are not recognized for our accomplishments, dismissed by a friend, or not invited to a party. It is a challenge that everyone must eventually face at one level or another. Psychotherapist and abandonment expert Susan Anderson guides you through the five stages of your journey—shattering, withdrawal, internalizing, rage, and lifting. She explores the seemingly endless pain of heartbreak and gives us concrete recovery tools and exercises to discover and heal underlying issues, identify self-defeating behaviors of mistrust and insecurity, and build self-esteem. And even have fun doing it! You can come away with a new sense of self, with an increased capacity to love.
