I learned so much by reading and doing the exercises of this book. You'll look back and reflect not only on the relationship that hurt you the most, but ALL of your significant relationships, and you will see a pattern unfold before you.

Seriously. Do you want to stumble through life with that unhealed hole in your chest?
If the smile and the spring sound good, let Friedman and James teach you how to once and for all put that old relationship behind you. It's a process. They'll walk you through it.
No meetings to attend.
No awkward moments.
No one will ever know.
As a pastor, I believe this book should be a required text/process for ALL pre-marriage counseling.
This clear and complete approach offers real hope to all who have been longing and searching for a life-long romantic relationship, but have missed the mark. The action steps in this book WILL help participants identify and unpack the emotional baggage that sabotages relationships, but more importantly, it gives clear and simple (not necessarily easy) steps to change the habits that poison future relationships. Healing your broken heart is a nice little 'ADDED BONUS' of this process.
In this GROUND BREAKING book, Friedman and James show you how to quit doing what you've always done so you can quit getting what you've always got!
Five Stars aren't nearly enough to convey the value of this MASTERPIECE!!!!
In "Moving On", I learned how to look at both their part and MY part. (we are not all as perfect as we may think :) I now see there has been a pattern, and more importantly, my part in it. I can't change their behavior, but I can certainly change mine.
Closure is something I thought I'd never have, especially with relationships more than 20 years old, but thanks to this book - I'm discovering a way to let go and say "goodbye". It feels better than almost anything I've ever done.
Thanks to Russell and John for having the guts to share your own stories and to helping me with mine.
