Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend

Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend

Two friendsTwo friends (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Boyfriends, work, kids, life crises, cultural gaps— there are all kinds of reasons why female friendships end. Sometimes the reasons can be quite strange and very confusing.

Whatever the cause, you can be left devastated and asking yourself lots of difficult questions.

  • Was someone to blame?
  • Was the friendship worth fighting for?
  • How can I avoid this happening again?
The saddest thing is that women going through this often have no one to confide in.

Losing a husband or lover usually means there is lots of sympathy around. But broken friendships don't touch the same chords and it can make other friends feel uncomfortable – is the same thing going to happen between you and them?

Irene Levine is a journalist and psychologist. In her book, Best Friends, she offers compassionate advice on how to find your way through the issues and she offers suggestions on when to save a relationship and what to do if it's best to let a toxic friendship go

Levine draws on testimonials from thousands of women with anecdotes and examples of solutions to resolve these difficult situations.

She helps you to accept that sometimes breakups are inevitable. Although it is a painful time, this modestly priced book helps you to stop blaming yourself and come out of it stronger and better able to handle relationships in the future.

A Lakota Peyote Healing Song by Robbie Robertson YouTube is full of music that claims to be Native American from North America and usually it isn't.
