Breakup Blueprint by Julia M. (Review)

In some of my darkest days - TikTok of all places - brought me some much needed comfort in my solitude. Seeing the similarities between my own life and others, made me feel like I wasn’t alone and I’ve always been a huge fan of quotes. Poems, on the other hand, isn’t something I’ve been drawn to. I’m still a child at heart and love a poem that rhymes! Repeatedly, scrolling through my For You page on TikTok I came across poems from the same book and so I decided to purchase and see if there was anything that could help me.

The Breakup Blueprint by Julia M. is one part of a series of books, about relationships and this one is split into chapters as per the healing process. I was very surprised when it first arrived as to how think it was. It's a very short book, very easy to read and took me all of about 2 hours, at most. The cover is simple but I really like the picture. It resonates with me and shows the internal battle a true heartbreak can cause between the emotional pain of a relationship breakdown and the mental struggle to overcome and fight through the depression. It's also a satin soft cover and feels so smooth and soft! 

I do feel like most of the poems were already shown on TikTok and therefore it didn't really make it worth the money of buying a physical copy, however there were so many poems that really struck me. I've said it before, but it really is so nice to not feel so alone all the time and there were a few that really stood out to me. I could share my personal stories relating to these, but I think I have probably shared more than enough over the last year and I have a post going out weekly this month on my mental health updates also. 

Overall, I do think it's lovely to have that sense of normality and approval when life feels anything but. I think that despite the content being available for free online, it can be quite nice to hold a physical copy and to be able to repeatedly look back on them, so I do think it's a good book to have when you're really struggling.
