Until I read this book, I did not know I was a Chump, living in Chump Nation! I thought I was “special” and could save my husband from himself. If I could just come up with the right thing to say I would be able to talk some sense into him! Not so! I am not special and my ex-husband is not any different than all the other husbands who did this to their wives. If you need a swift kick in the butt in order to wise up, this book is for you! I loved it. I am so much wiser for reading it.
I love that the author has been in this space where I am now! She even calls herself Chump Lady.
Note: She uses colorful language. If you are offended by the f-word, you might not to read this.
Leave a Cheater, Gain a Life is a no-nonsense self-help guide for anyone who has ever been cheated on. Here’s advice not based on saving your relationship after infidelity—but saving your sanity.
When it comes to cheating, a lot of the attention is focused on cheaters—their unmet needs or their challenges with monogamy. But Tracy Schorn (aka Chump Lady) lampoons such blameshifting and puts the focus squarely on the-cheated-upon (chumps) and their needs. Combining solid advice that champions self-respect, along with hilarious cartoons satirizing the pomposity of cheaters, Leave a Cheater, Gain a Life offers a fresh voice for chumps who want (and need) a new message about infidelity. This book will offer advice on Stupid sh*t cheaters say and how to respond, Rookie mistakes of the recently chumped and how to disarm your fears, Why chumps take the blame and how to protect yourself, and more.
Full of snark, sass, and real wisdom about how to bounce back after the gut blow of betrayal, Schorn is the friend who guides you through this nightmare and gives you hope for a better life ahead.
Stay Sweet, Be Strong!
