Mars and Venus Starting Over: A Practical Guide to Finding Love Again After a Painful Breakup, Divorce, or the Loss of a Loved One
By John Gray
"Mars & Venus Starting Over opens the door to finding a rich and fulfilling lifetime of love once again. The first section of the book addresses the part of the healing process that is basically the same for men and women. Dealing with the pain of a breakup or loss is not easy, and John Gray makes it clear that although the pain of loss is an inevitable part of life, suffering is not. He explains that the heart often lags behind the mind, that we must experience our grief in order tobecome whole again. He compassionately shows us how to find forgiveness and explains how good endings make good beginnings. Although the healing process is fundamentally the same, starting over on Venus is often different from starting over on Mars. Women tend to push love away to avoid getting hurt again. On the other hand, men often get involved right away, but have trouble committing. Part two, 'Starting Over on Venus,' explores the twenty-three common challenges..." faced by women. Part three, 'Starting Over on Mars,' address the men's issues.
