LittleBook helps people find meaning, relieve emotional pain, and shorten the recovery journey.
How does it work?
LittleBooks works with experts such as Dr. Sbarra at the University of Arizona to develop a framework for after-breakup recovery.
By answering questions backed by research, you will gain closure and end up with a story that will help you view it from a healthier perspective, so you can feel better faster.
* Therapeutic Understanding & Appreciation *
LittleBook asks you questions about your relationship to facilitate understanding, rebuild self-image, and lay the groundwork for moving on.
Research by Dr. Lewandowski, Dr. Fredrickson, and others found writing with a focus on the positive aspects of the break-up helps to revive the self and emotionally recover.
* Storytelling & Closure *
After answering all the questions, you will get breakup advice and your "story", stitched from your own answers and always editable.
Professor Pennebaker at The University of Texas points out the act of expressing trauma has been part of healing for virtually all cultures, ranging from Native American indigenous cultures to those based on Western and Eastern religious beliefs, adding, "People who are able to construct a story, to build some kind of narrative ... seem to benefit more than those who don’t."
* Overcoming Withdrawal With A Satisfied Mind *
You are encouraged to add details to and edit your story, especially when you have the "craving" to initiate after-breakup contact, which is disruptive to the healing process.
Allowing yourself to forget is easier too: Early beta users felt less guilty about and became more receptive to forgetting because they knew their stories would always be there, never lost. After all has been written, there’s nothing more to carry. The only thing left is to begin to move on.
