How to Break Up With Anyone: Letting Go of Friends, Family, and Everyone In-Between by Jamye WaxmanA friend recently asked me to recommend some books to help her friend get over a breakup. To both of our surprises, I couldn't give her any suggestions because, well, I didn't have any. I'm a clinical psychologist in full-time private practice in New York City. People often ask me to recommend shrinks, opine on new therapies, or to suggest appropriate books. In this case, however, I didn't have one.

C'mon, Tennyson, is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

7 Books About Breakups And Heartbreak To Read When You Need A Little Help Healing And Moving On
Personally, my taste in breakup books is very particular. As time went on, my scope widened a bit, but the best breakup books , in my opinion, all have this in common: They allow you to escape, but not in a mindless way. The book starts with a breakup, and while there is an erotic romantic plot with her merman rebound just go with it , this book is definitely anything but saccharine. They seemed to be saying, Look, someone wants me this much. I have safely made it to the other shore. This Buddhist approach to broken-heartedness by meditation teacher Susan Piver is all about learning to sit with the pain of a broken heart. It is both deeply philosophical and practical and ends with a seven-day self-imposed retreat of sorts to help you process everything.

The Worst and Best Ways to Tell Someone It’s Over
That book isn't on this list, because who wants to read about a cheating dude after a breakup? Regardless of how I feel about its source, that brutal sentiment will ring painfully true for anyone who's just had their heart broken: When you're in the midst of a separation, it feels like you will never, ever stop loving the other person. Luckily, I can personally attest to the truth of that "time heals all wounds" adage, but unluckily, I can also personally attest to the truth of that "patience is a virtue" adage. And honestly, who feels virtuous after a breakup? So while you wait for patience and time to work their magic, I suggest you take matters into your own hands and nudge the healing forward by reading some books about breakups and heartbreak. If you are anything like me, reading through these books will require that you carve out an entire afternoon for a good, long cry. But there's plenty of humor to be found in these books, and a lot of optimistic thinking about future love, too.
