Most of us will begin—and end—many relationships in our lives. Why is it so difficult to keep one love for a lifetime? Daphne Rose Kingma's The Breakup Bible is a landmark guide that shares a new view of why we fall in and out of love, and why this painful process is not only natural but essential if we are to find true love.
Vividly illustrated with real-life examples from Kingma's 25 years of work with couples in therapy, The Breakup Bible unravels the many layers of emotional experience after a love ends, to show that each relationship is a unique stepping-stone in our development as human beings.
Kingma's profound insights take the blame and fear out of the ending of a love affair, and contextualize it as a life-giving experience. Using checklists, examples, and exercises, Kingma offers real answers to such questions as: Why did this happen? What can I do now to start healing? Why do I pick the lovers I do? Will I ever love again?
There are many insightful works on how to begin a relationship, but The Breakup Bible is a true classic on when and how to end one.
