Overview

Bringing a fresh attitude to the perennial subject of lost love, Dumped! is a focused guide to surviving one of life's harshest blows, a broken heart. To be dumped resonates with a meaning all its own. To be dumped is not quite the same as splitting up, seeing less of each other or mutually deciding to call it quits. To be dumped means that your partner ended your relationship in a way that was hurtful, fairly unexpected and absolutely unequivocal.

When her husband left, Sally Warren did not pretend that what had happened had not really happened -- as in "Well, we both decided separation was a good idea right now..." or "things didn't work out..." or other evasions. She faced head-on what had happened to her.

In Dumped! she offers advice on:

How to get through the hurt, loneliness and embarrassmentHow to re-enter the social scene on suddenly shaky footingHow to keep your emotional cool when kids go off for a weekend with Dad and his new girlfriendHow to keep your anger from giving you ulcersHow to keep the hasty moves and the harsh words that can end up costing you assets, self-pride and healing time

Based on real-life experiences, Dumped! will take you by the hand and say, "Right now, this is what you are feeling... what people are saying to you... what you are finding hard to do..." and "Here is how you can help yourself feel better... here is what you will say to those people... here is how you will find the courage to do what you need to do... here is how you will go forward and make a life for yourself that is full of joy, strength, new friends and rich rewards."
