047 Rebekah Freedom: Breakup Rehab Start Over Stronger

047 Rebekah Freedom: Breakup Rehab Start Over Stronger

Love has a learning curve. We need to have a little mercy for ourselves.

This is a continuation of the 3-part series with Rebekah starting with episode 46 Addiction Counseling Transform Now AHT046: .

Rebekah Freedom wrote Breakup Rehab - Start Over Stronger for individuals who know that conventional advice isn't enough to help them heal after their breakup.

Breakup Rehab is for the lonely, the weary, the hopeless romantics, and the hopeful lovers. This book is for the divorced, divorcing, thinking of divorce, for the broken up, the breaking up, and after the break up. It has clear steps to guide you to healing after losing the love you so hoped you could hold onto. There ain’t no shame in your pain, but after a breakup it sure feels like it. And the phrases, "Get over it", "Un-friend", and "Find someone new" don’t help. Enter Breakup Rehab.

This book is for people who are sick of the same old advice, who want to truly heal after a breakup and not just repeat old patterns, and who want to know what love is; who are singing, “I want you to show me.” This book cleverly takes the traditional twelve steps and customizes them to the breaking-up process. It is candid, direct, and at times humorous. This book isn’t for people who want to spend the next few years of their life pining after their ex and who just want more of the same. Reading this book will result in real change, growth, and clarity. Buckle up. You are about to go on a journey. Destination: Breakup Rehab.
