7 Books to Read With a Broken Heart
To Help You Recognize: Busy Hands, Bandaged Heart
This ingenious book includes exercises and crafts for every dip and rise of your emotional roller coaster, from abject misery and incandescent anger to "rejoining the living. " Interestingly enough, the field of revenge crafts, or "crying and creating," as Chang jokingly calls it, can turn out some pretty cool and useful items. For example, transform his silk tie into a trendy, midcentury-esque sachet; or, turn the sleeve of his favorite cashmere sweater into a doggy-faced coffee-cup koozie. Even if you don't lift a finger to knit, glue or sew, just reading the book will help you feel that anything—including yourself—can be rehabbed.
