Description

Not all relationships are made to last forever. Sometimes what starts as a beautiful friendship or productive partnership turns toxic, or one-sided, or unhealthy-and the best solution for both parties is to end it. In How to Break Up With Anyone, relationship expert Jamye Waxman has written a much-needed guide to every step of a non-romantic breakup. Drawing from her own experiences, Jamye provides strategies for disengaging from a friend, family member, community, or even former version of oneself, addressing both practical and emotional concerns. While ending a relationship can be painful, Jamye’s positive message focuses on the ultimately liberating aspects of putting unhealthy relationships to rest. 

Chapters include: Breaking Up Versus Taking a Break, Best Friends Forever No More, Breaking Up With Family, Kissing Community Goodby, eRelabeling Your Sexuality and Gender, Breaking Up With Your Career, Breaking Up With Anyone Else, Being Broken Up With. How to Break Up With Anyone provides the tools for anyone to initiate a breakup, the encouragement to get through it, and the wisdom to recognize that they don’t have to settle for anything less than productive, healthy relationships. 

Covering a variety of relationships, How to Break Up With Anyone is a timeless resource for people of all ages.

        Starred review from September 15, 2015

        A multitude of books exist on romantic breakups, yet few discuss how to disengage from a friend, family member, or even a former version of oneself. Waxman (Getting Off) fills that void by putting forth seven steps to dissolving a union, starting with deciding to do it and ending with feeling the burn and repeating a mantra. Using concrete examples, she emphasizes that it can be a gift to everyone to walk away from a situation that isn't serving anyone well. A section of advice for those who have been broken up with includes warnings to back off, take care of oneself, and refuse to be a doormat. VERDICT Sound guidance for those involved in toxic relationships and looking for a way out.
