You're trying to get over your ex, yet you're still in touch and have ended up being his or her backup plan. Maybe you haven't left yet, but you want to and just don't know how.

Through her popular blog Baggage Reclaim, Natalie Lue has helped thousands of people break free from unhealthy relationships and breakups after using No Contact to kick a toxic relationship and transform her life.

Yes - it's good if you are struggling with a break up and need to know you;re not the only one who goes through this stuff! It talks alot about why you shouldn't contact them, but kind of lacks things to do instead of contacting them other than 'going out with friends' which isn't always what you feel like doing.
Just summarises and repeats what has already been said (quite a few times) already.
It just reassured me that how I feel is normal and OK. I could relate to many of the things she talked about.
a lot pertained to who I used to be and who I became. stronger. smarter, wiser. a lot of stuff I'm already doing by blocking all Contact from the ex and moving on, processing all the stages of grieve and my emotion. a lot applies to the ex in how clingy, needy, Codependant he is an refused to give up making the healing process hard for me and himself. wish I could share this book with him but then I'd be breaking the "NC" ;). just have to let him work on him for him, himself cuz I have to work on mine. :)
When you are going through a breakup and vulnerable those who love you can't always be straight with you. This book is what you need to hear. It is the hard truth you need but also sage advice. You don't necessarily need to cut contact to take something from this book because she knows all of the bullshit you are trying to work through.
She does a great job of explaining everything in a way that is practical and understandable. She cannot tell you how YOU need to go about moving on, she just frames what you are going through in ways that will give you perspective.
If you are struggling with the end or soon-to-be-end of any relationship, buy this book and put on repeat!
it wasnt enjoyable because of the narrator. I could handle listening to her no longer than maybe 20 minutes at a time. Its a Shame.
I really like the story.
how many cups of coffee did the narrator have????? Talks way too fast. Listening to her was torture.
I wanted to, but couldnt. That pitch, that voice.....too much Speed!
Extremely helpful for someone going through a breakup, especially when your live isn't returned
Her information and how she presented it
How to maintain healthy relationship balance and not let yourself be taken advantage of.
As someone who has been in an unhealthy, imbalanced (not in my favor) relationship for two years, I can say this is very useful information. Not groundbreaking in that I have heard a lot of it before. But it's all here, in one book. If you are in an imbalanced relationship you probably know it or at least strongly suspect it. You are not going to like a lot of what is said as I don't. I am currently having to walk away from someone I love with every ounce of my soul but that is not good for me and has never truly valued me as a person. I feel for anyone in this situation as I know how painful it is. But if you want to recover and have something healthy with someone who does appreciate you, what she tells you in this book is absolutely necessary.
I love every book Ms. Lue had written. But this one is needed for everyone considering a breakup or just have been through a breakup.
Natalie Lue hits the target by connecting to the listener on both sides of a relationship through her accurate descriptions of the emotions and timing of those emotions in a break up and follows up with a rationale course of action. So many times, as I was listening, that I felt I had a lot to gain because she was so dead on.
