What a great title for a book!
Thanks to all who entered the Mend It Better Giveaway with your AWESOME comments on How To Mend A Broken Heart. I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am by the wisdom in your responses.

I'm also happy to report that my heart is feeling quite mended these days!

You are all winners but the winner of the Mend It Better giveaway is:
I think it is wise to still be thankful for the love, the joy, the devotion, the passion, the phantasies, the state of mind you were in while you were in love with the one who broke your heart. Nobody can take that away from you. It’s your former boyfriend’s karma to have finished the relationship and perhaps he didn’t tell you the real reasons why he left you. You don’t know anyway if this love would have survived the daily routine that follows after the intoxication of the brain in the first year of love. To my opinion good and close friends who listen to the seemingly never ending thoughts and doubts that dominate your mind are the best remedy. And……..time is really a healer! Take care!
