Review sách Why We Broke Up

"We don't talk anymore, we don't talk anymore

We don't talk anymore, like we used to do

We don't love anymore

What was all of it for?

Oh, we don't talk anymore, like we used to do.."

This story reminds me of Letters to the dead.

When you find no one to confide in, expessing your feelings through Letters is not a bad idea.

Letters to a blighted love.

Love makes you jump for joy, and then shatters you into pieces.

Every has gone through breakup and you know it's really hard to get over it. When you start a romantic relationship, you can never imagine that one day, everything will turn out like this. Hurt comes from a person you least expect but hit you the hardest. You might feel like you are shriveling into nothingness, and at the same time trapped in rage and shame, with no idea how to escape. You simply do not know what to do with all those difficult feelings. Emotions arises from memories and memories arises from the moments that are being spent together, from littlist stuffs related to your beloved one . All of the flirting, smiling, hand-holding, and special times are over and you know that those good memories wont be back again. You start to develop feelings of guilt and blame ourselves for ruining the relationship.

But, everything happens for a reason. One day you'll realize that who is wrong, why this relationship falls apart doesn't matter anymore. It's no use crying over spilt milk. What doesn't kill you make you stronger.

P/s: Each chapter of Why We Broke Up is accompanied by an illustration, detailing one of the items Min is returning to Ed. It makes the story more realistic and relatable. The stream-of-conscious writing style is poetic and touching. And I was surprised that Daniel was the author of A series of unfortunate events (I loved this series) and he was dumped at least 3 times in highschool (poor him).
