Eat Pray Love book

Going through a heartbreak, whether from a break-up or a setback in your life, is a difficult time. It is easy to fall into a pit of despair and feel like everything is hopeless. But while it may seem like a bleak period in your life, it can also be a time for new beginnings and opportunities. You can turn things around doing things like life purpose planning and taking deliberate steps to bounce back stronger than ever. And should you need some inspiration, here are some of the books on dealing with heartbreaks and the heartwarming quotes you can find in them.

1. Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

2. Getting Past Your Break-Up: How to Turn a Devastating Loss into the Best Thing that Ever Happened to You by Susan J. Elliott, JD, MSEd
“You don’t need answers or explanations to find closure. No matter what the loss, the closure comes from inside you.”

3. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
“Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it’s no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.”

4. Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar by Cheryl Strayed
“Most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be. Sometimes you’ll put up a good fight and lose. Sometimes you’ll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go. Acceptance is a small, quiet room.”
