Mars and Venus Starting Over | [John Gray]

Mars and Venus Starting Over

When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful, an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again.

Publisher's Summary

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, but the pain of starting over is universal.

When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful, an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again. As Dr. John Gray tells us, by shutting down the feelings of hurt, pain, and loneliness, we are actually hindering our recovery.

Now with his extraordinary insight and wisdom, Dr. Gray, best-selling author of Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, explores the process of starting over after the loss of a love relationship, examining how men and women respond differently, and which kind of reactions foster healing, growth, and openness to love, and which ones keep us closed off and unable to share our love.

For anyone who has ever experienced the pain and loss of separation, Dr. Gray's brilliant work will open your eyes to the behavioral patterns that have kept you from moving on, and show you the way to open your heart once again to the joy and love that you want, need, and deserve.

    "So wonderful!"

    This book came to me at just the right time. Still grieving from initiating a breakup with someone that I was in love with, I continued to struggle with the question of whether or not I made the right decision and why I was still so depressed when I was the one that walked away.

    The format is great as Dr. Gray first explains why you have the feelings you do, some exercises to help you forgive your ex and yourself and then things to do and to watch out for when you try again.

    For me, the exercises that brought me back through the relationship gave me the epiphany that I needed. It helped me remember why I had to breakup and gave me new perspective into why the relationship wasn't working.

    I highly recommend this book for anyone who is still struggling with the loss of a love.

    Story
    "Women should read this"

    I've read Mars and Venus, In the Bedroom, Diet, and now this. I guess if I read them all I should not have had to read this (-: I believe in a lot of what he says in all his books and about relationships, but he really does write more for female understanding. If more females would read and understand, or couples together then discuss, these books could save many troubles.
    As for this one, he gave me some information that has allowed me to forgive both her and myself, and will make it a little easier to move on. For that, the whole thing was worth it, But again, like most books in this vein, its there more for a woman to understand the mystery of herself.

    "Helps make the journey a bit more rational."
    Where does Mars and Venus Starting Over rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't read self help books. In fact, I stay as far away from them as I can.
    Because I'm NOT dealing with a seperation and obvious


    What does John Gray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice is one of understanding andcompassion


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, in the sense that it made me face certain things that I was not ready to face.
