Linda asks Liz if she needs to break down to move forward.

6 of 13
Linda, a mother of two, says she can relate to Liz's story. "I picked up the book right at the time I was going through a divorce," she says. Linda says that, unlike Liz, she never had a breakdown or a "bathroom floor moment."

Do you need a breakdown before you can move forward? "Some of us who are a little more evolved don't need to be broken in half before the light gets in," Liz says. "I needed to be made into scrambled eggs before the light got in." Because everyone is different, Liz says that a breakdown is not a part of the journey for every person. "I certainly wouldn't advise that you begin your path by trying to have a nervous breakdown," she says.
