Letting Go of Your Ex (2023)
Dr. Cortney Warren, PhD, ABPP
At some point in our lives, almost all of us will go through an excruciatingly painful breakup that absolutely rocks our world. It may be so all-consuming that you feel addicted to your ex. Desperate to reconnect and understand what happened, you can become fixated on your former lover as if you need them to survive. As if your life has lost all meaning without them by your side. As if you no longer have purpose or value on your own. This experience often leaves us feeling depressed, anxious, and lost without a clear picture of how to move on—even when you desperately want to.
If you’re living through the heartache of a love-addicted breakup, I wrote this book for you. And I want you to know that you’re not alone. I’ve been there. Millions of people around the world have been there. People of all ages, ethnic and racial groups, sexual orientations, gender identities, income levels, religious backgrounds, cultural groups and walks of life have been there. Love is a basic human need. It’s a drive. When you fall hard for someone and then breakup, it can throw you into an addictive cycle of heartache.
The good news is that there is hope. There are many useful skills you can learn to help heal the pain of this breakup and create your next great life adventure. Based on a cognitive behavioral formulation of addictive behaviors, I wrote Letting Go of Your Ex (2023) to help you stop your unwanted symptoms, understand how you got here, and create the next chapter of your life—an emerging chapter of life rooted in the deep inner knowledge that you’re valuable and worthy just as you are—with or without your ex.
