Description

Imagine if we treated broken hearts with the same respect and concern we have for broken arms? Psychologist Guy Winch urges us to rethink the way we deal with emotional pain, offering warm, wise, and witty advice for the broken-hearted.

Real heartbreak is unmistakable. We think of nothing else. We feel nothing else. We care about nothing else. Yet while we wouldn't expect someone to return to daily activities immediately after suffering a broken limb, heartbroken people are expected to function normally in their lives, despite the emotional pain they feel. Now psychologist Guy Winch imagines how different things would be if we paid more attention to this unique emotion - if only we can understand how heartbreak works, we can begin to fix it.

Through compelling research and new scientific studies, Winch reveals how and why heartbreak impacts our brain and our behavior in dramatic and unexpected ways, regardless of our age. Emotional pain lowers our ability to reason, to think creatively, to problem solve, and to function at our best. In How to Fix a Broken Heart he focuses on two types of emotional pain - romantic heartbreak and the heartbreak that results from the loss of a cherished pet. These experiences are both accompanied by severe grief responses, yet they are not deemed as important as, for example, a formal divorce or the loss of a close relative. As a result, we are often deprived of the recognition, support, and compassion afforded to those whose heartbreak is considered more significant.

Our heart might be broken, but we do not have to break with it. Winch reveals that recovering from heartbreak always starts with a decision, a determination to move on when our mind is fighting to keep us stuck. We can take control of our lives and our minds and put ourselves on the path to healing. Winch offers a toolkit on how to handle and cope with a broken heart and how to, eventually, move on.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Well written and thought provoking!

I was really captivated by this book. It not only validated feelings I had about heartbreak, but offered logical and compelling strategies for healing. The concept of disenfranchised grief is well explained by the author. It’s something I never associated as to why short term romantic heartbreaks were just as painful as the loss of a loved one. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for answers or to be healthy after a heartbreak.

I wish I had learned this when I was growing up

My first relationship happened by the age of 30, being gay and with a terrible self esteem. When it ended at the age of 32 I was devastated. I had just lost my companion which I shared so many activities from backpacking, gaming, going out, traveling and exercising with. With it I was thrown back into the dating scene with my self criticism and had no idea of how to move on. How to fill the gaps where we shared so much and where he gave me support. After listening to the audio book I now have the tools to move on. It will not be easy, but now I know what I must do. Not only search new friends and activities but also and maybe the most important, remove my low self esteem. Thank you for writing the book and sharing your thoughts on the topic!

new perspective

focused on broken hearts from relationships and loss of a pet. But the information can be translated to many areas easily. It's a fresh perspective that's not too clinical and not too touchy feely.

Very inspiring words

Honestly, I’ve been suffering for about 9 months after my 3 year relationship ended. This book gave me some good key insight I would have never gotten. Now to put those words into actions and continuously push forward.

Very In Depth Look That Cured Me.

I learned a lot from this book. I can view my life honestly, and understand my emotions more. I also learned that my addiction, to anything, was a manifestation of me avoiding fear created by my father from a young age. This was the missing piece that completed my self searching, and I honestly feel like Ive graduated from my mind. Of course theres still much to learn, but im finally able to find where it was that I was lacking mentally, where my weaknesses were and address them.

Life is so fucking beautiful.

extremely basic, and pet focused.

Finished it only because I knew it was short. Didn't give much insight. and could have been summarised in 15min
