“Susan, I couldn’t have found a better coach, and I simply wanted to say “thank you” for your honesty and not letting me continue to make excuses. I feel like the luckiest person on the planet for finding someone like you. Thank you isn’t sufficient!”
– Tom Blakton, Ontario, Canada

 

“Ever since I found you on the internet, my life has been changed forever. You have such an incredible way with words and getting right to the point. As much as I didn’t want to hear it, you finally made me hear it, and once I did, it opened my eyes! Keep on doing what you do!”
– Cindy Del Castro, Miami

 

“Two years ago, while recovering from major surgery, I found out that my partner and father to our eight-year-old daughter was having an affair with another woman. We had a rather good ten-year relationship, or so I thought, and this came all so very unexpectedly and I took it very badly. I felt that my world was tearing apart. I couldn’t and didn’t want to accept what was happening to both me and my daughter, who was heartbroken after her dad walked out on us. I was struggling and could not find peace within myself. I spoke with many of my friends about how I felt but it seemed that my anger just grew and grew. After having read There Is Life after What’s-His-Name, I began to face the facts, and it also taught me how to accept the situation, something I could not do on my own. I am most grateful to Susan Russo and her book, which has helped me a great deal. I can now say that I live my life with an attitude of gratitude!
Thank you very much for writing. It’s unbelievable how your book worked on me from the minute I started reading it! I have recommended it to so many of my friends who found themselves in the same situation. The best book anyone can have!! To me, you were a God-send; you picked me up every time I was down and helped me get over all my troubles, and for that, I am forever grateful.”
– Carmen Mifsud, Malta

 

“Your blogs have helped me more than you could ever imagine. You helped me have a life. The messages are so on target that I felt as if you were in my brain. You get it, and from that I was able to pick myself up and realize all that I do have. With your help I am succeeding when I never thought for a second that it would be possible. I do not know you, but I want you to know how much I appreciate the role that you have chosen. You truly make a difference, and I would love to meet you some day. Many, many hugs. ”
– Gay Connolly, Atlanta, Georgia

 

“Susan, I will never be able to thank you enough for changing my life. I was at the point of no return when you saved me. God gave you to me when I had no hope. Please believe you are an angel. Forever I will remember you.”
– Katrina Gonzales, Argentina

 

“I will be forever grateful [to Susan] for changing my life. You are the most eye-opening coach anyone could ask for!

– Diane Strauss, Wisconsin

 

“I was in a somewhat abusive relationship that I was afraid to leave. Thanks to your book, you gave me the courage and strength to move away from this terrible time in my life.

– Marissa Smithton, Sydney, Australia

 

“I ordered Susan’s e-book when I was just getting out of a bad relationship. Susan gives honest and direct advice. She helped me see what I could not see for myself at the time—that I deserved better than what I was getting. Susan’s advice is not only for surviving a bad breakup, but also for how to do it right the next time. I highly recommend this e-book for those suffering a painful break up and for those who want to learn how to have better relationships.”
– Katie Matthews, Texas

 

“I was feeling so down about the breakup of my relationship with Tom. I summarized what our relationship had been in a letter to Susan. She had taken each line and analyzed it. She explained my relationship better than I could. She definitely helped me see every-thing in clear sight. Four months of heartache and then I found her; I wish it could have been sooner. After being coached for just one day, my world became bright. I no longer wanted to linger in my past relationship. I would strongly recommend for anybody who needs that push—either to leave a partner, analyze your relationship problems, or to get over the hurt—this woman will help you. I thought that I was unfixable. Thanks again, Susan!!!”
– Angel Summers, Ontario, Canada

 

“Your advice in your blogs is truly inspirational and insightful and brings awareness of what I need to be reminded of each day. A few years back, I was going through a difficult situation. I tried everything to get past a breakup, yet I still felt stuck. Other advisors may have helped a little, but you were my turning point!! Your advice and listening ear touched me and also brought awareness that I didn’t realize what I needed to know and hear in order to heal and for me to move forward. For that, I’m truly grateful! Thanks, Susan, for setting me free!!”
– Michelle B., California

“Thank you Susan for your kind, inspiring, uplifting words. They have spoken to my heart more than you know and was exactly what I needed to hear. I’ve been praying, and God led me to you, to remind me to stop trying to control, and to let go and truly have faith in him. I can’t thank you enough for I have been struggling through my negativity and depression long enough. You have helped me find my strength again, and realize that we all have it within if we choose to use it.”
– Maree

 

“Your blogs have helped me more than you could ever imagine. I have been to many counselors , support groups, doctor’s, etc. and for some reason your timely messages made all the difference in the world. They came at such opportune times… late at night when the demons are out and you are feeling so low to mornings when I just wanted to crawl into a hole and stay there all day. You helped me have a life. The messages are so on target that I felt as if you were in my brain. You get it and from that I was able to pick myself up and realize all that I do have. I have an extremely unusual circumstance and you still made me want to go out there and realize my worth. You have given me such confidence and it did not cost a dime. I am 64 years old and am totally starting over and with your help I am succeeding when I never thought for a second that it would be possible. I do not know you but i want you to know how much I appreciate the role that you have chosen. You truly make a difference and I would love to meet you some day. Many, many hugs. Sincerely, Gay Connolly”

“I ordered Susan’s e-book “Why Stay” a few years ago when I was just getting out of a bad relationship. Susan gives very good, honest, and direct advice. She helped me see what I could not see for myself at the time… that I deserved better than what I was getting. After another break up a few months ago with a different guy, I turned back to the book to help me. What I read the second time that I did not see the first time, is that Susan’s advice is not only for surviving a bad break up, but advice for how to do it right the next time. I highly recommend this e-book for those suffering a painful break up, and for those who want to learn how to have better relationships. – KM”

“Susan has a way of writing that is inspiring but also concise and clear. I feel she was a God send for me because she doesn’t realize that what she is saying is EXACTLY what I needed to hear at a certain time. For example, if I am thinking too much about one thing (like the ex), her next article will be something like “Letting go” or “Leaving the past in the past” just random examples paraphrasing what she actually says. She seems to know how to help others because you get the feeling she has walked that walk herself. I am thankful for Susan and her talent. thank you Susan :)”

“Hi Susan, I must say your blogs are truly an inspiration to me. I feel the same as others you seem to find the right words at the right time…just when you think negative its great to read the positive views that you want people like myself and others to realize that we are all facing obstacles that will make us stronger and gain our direction to dealing with situations because of our past present and future decisions will be from a learning experience that we all may have encounter in our life. Thanks for your inspiration of life!”
– Bibi

 

“Hi Susan – I love all your blogs, but I do believe you wrote this one just for me. I save all your blogs and go over them from time to time, and they just keep getting better. Thanks for helping over some really tough spots in the past and now, in the present. Love, Hazel”
– Hazel P. – Texas

 

“Hello Susan – I do have a testimonial that I like to share with others, you saved my life and this is no exaggeration! I was hospitalized for a couple of weeks after my break-up where I was treated for severe depression and thoughts of suicide. After I was released, I still had in mind to end my life. I was really walking through an unknown path when I found you and you pointed me in the right direction. I now know that God sends angels our way when he needs to communicate with his lost children Embarrassed smile… Hindsight, I now find it absolutely ridiculous that I allowed this jerk to make me feel this way. I’m embarrassed to share my name with the public and prefer to remain anonymous; is this possible? Below please find our exchange to jar your memory; had you not intervened, I would have taken my life.”

“I have been meaning to write and let you know how helpful your emails and blogs have been for me. Ending a relationship with someone you have loved for years is a difficult journey. Even though it was my decision , it was a sad one never the less and there were many times I wondered if I should have stayed in the relationship even though I knew in my heart we just were not right for each other.Your emails always seem to be just what I need to get past a difficult moment or day. When I felt like calling him, your email “Don’t call him!” popped up, just when I needed it. I am moving forward now and feeling better all the time. Thank you for being such an inspiration.”
– Susan Rankin, CO

 

“Hi Susan. Your blogs are always very inspiring. Your starting over couldnt come at a better time! I have been stuck in a relationship that I Knew deep down wasnt meant to be. Kept letting my Ex back each time he cheated on me,which he did severally. I still love him but i think its time to move on. It will be hard but i hope i wnt make the usual mistake of going back. Keep up with the blogs. They always have a way of inspiring me. Cant wait to read the next one!”
– Linda W – Unknown

 

“Hi Susan, I will always be grateful for your book “There Is Life After What’s-His-Name”. I was in a relationship that I just couldn’t seem to end but which was very bad for me. It ate away at my self esteem and I spent so much time crying. I believed for so long it was me, or my partner would change. It took me several times of ‘finishing’ with him to see it through. Each time he would find a way back into my life and I would second guess my original decision. But ultimately I did it and to get me through I just kept re-reading your book to give me strength. It was the best decision I have ever made. I am now in a wonderful relationship with my true soul mate”
– Alison – England

 

“Susan, I know it was hard to hear at first but your coaching was a wake up call for me. I don’t know how much more time I would’ve wasted if you hadn’t been so honest with me. Thank you for getting me to see the light. I will be ever grateful! Debbie”
– Debbie Savoy, CA

 

“Dear Susan, I thought I would never get over my husband of 15 years. I tried so hard and I couldn’t get out of my depression. After I read, “There Is Life After What’s-His-Name” I finally had the hope and strength to leave the past behind. And, I even could forgive him, thanks to your wise, wise words. You have a gift for writing and any time I can, I tell people about you. God bless your work and thank you for every word in your book.”

“Susan, I wanted to take the time to say, THANK YOU! My girlfriend left me as you know and I never thought I would survive. Your coaching brought me to the place I am today and I don’t know what I would’ve done without you. Thanks again for all of your help….Thank you for all of your strength and kind words.”

“Dear Susan, I just wanted to write you and thank you from the bottom of my heart. If I hadn’t been lucky enough to find your book on the Internet, I really don’t think I would’ve made it through. Your book helped me to open my eyes on so many levels. I feel like I was blind and now I can see and what I see looks a whole lot better than what I left behind. Thank you for all of your strength and kind words.”
– Lillian Smalley – UK

 

“Dear Susan,
Thank you very much for writing. Its unbelievable how your book worked on me from the minute I started reading it! I have recommended it to somany of my friends who find themselves in the situation I was myself. The best handbook anyone can have!! Many, many thanks”
– Carmen

 

“Dear Susan, I was in a very difficult situation, something I hadn’t planned would happen to me. I was so in control of my life, and relationships, so I thought. Unexpectedly, I fell for another man, I was already married and facing some hard and serious decisions! I never persued an affair with this man, thank goodness! I saw Susan’s name on the Internet by chance. I decided to write to her for advice and explained what I was going through, I am a very private person, so opening up was hard, I felt embarrassed. She coached me all the way through.She knew my emotional ups and downs, how you think, and what daily choices I had to make.Positiveness played a big part in the transformation of my outlook on myself, I had to love myself first!!! I started to think less of him, and my heart began to heal. I am happily married. Thank you Susan for your coaching and guidance. I recommend others who may be having their own personal battle, to seek your help. Kindest regards”
– Michelle, Auckland, New Zealand

 

“Your book was truly invaluable to me. I was in a relationship that was not good for me. It was emotionally quite damaging and I spent so much time crying and then trying to do better and change myself! I downloaded your book, read it and agreed I should end my relationship; only to go back twice to my partner and had to repeat the process. But the really important thing was that your book helped me to be increasingly persuaded that things had to end. It took me almost a year but finally I decided on what I wanted from the relationship and I gently told my partner, but said that of course if he didn’t want the same things… That was it. I ended the relationship….for good. I read, and reread your book. It supported me and took me through the break up step by step until finally I can say I am truly free! I would sincerely recommend it to anyone. Deep inside you know the truth about a relationship but sometimes it takes a long time to acknowledge and face up to it. I am now in a very loving relationship; totally different from my previous one. Thank you so much. “
– Alison, Ireland

 

“Dear Susan, I wanna thank you very much for your support during all this sad period I am going through, mainly in relation to the end of my love relationship. Your support aided me so gratefully that I am feeling much better now . I am not crying so much as I did and I am feeling more strong and secure to go on with my life without the man I was in love. Your kind words and sincere support are still of great value and are being very important so that I can reorganize my emotions and my life in general. Again I am very grateful for your support in healing my broken heart. Many thanks and may GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL AND YOU!”
– Suzana F. Padilla (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

 

“Men, absolutely do not let the title of this book mislead you. This is not written for women only nor is it remotely close to a “male bashing” book. Susan Russo has aimed this phenomenal work of wisdom at the loyal, dedicated person, male OR female, who has given everything they have to give to their relationship, tried every possible avenue to create a healthy life with their partner and still find themselves frustrated with an uncommitted, self-serving mate unwilling to give that devotion in return. If you’ve exhausted all possible efforts to create a fulfilling relationship but find that your dedication is a one-way street, it is absolutely imperative that you read this rare book rich with straight-to-the-point advice and liberation from your suffering.If you’ve strived endlessly only to realize that no matterwhat you do, how committed you are, or how hard you work, that your partner still gives little regard to you or your relationship, do yourself a tremendous favor and follow Susan’s very clear steps to navigating your way out. I spent most of my 16-year relationship hoping, working, and praying for my wife to accept the responsibilities, daily joy, and fulfillment that marriage and parenthood are meant to bring. I tried everything humanly possible to save our dead marriage: seven years of counseling, thousands of dollars supporting her bad habits, working to exhaustion for years to keep the family afloat, living with her wreckless decisions of infidelity, several nights leaving me home alone with our four children while she parties till bar time or just doesn’t come home at all, out-of-state trips that lasted for weeks, prioritizing relatives & friends before her husband and children, secret cell phone and internet life, little or no marital communication, and a blatant disregard for my constant effort and devotion. I was loyal to a fault and did all of this in the name of saving my “nuclear family” that she wasn’t willing to also fight for. Susan Russo, with direct honesty and compassion, spells out very clearly the difference between real and false hope. She walks with you hand-in-hand from the despair and frustration you are currently feeling, to making the difficult decision to end the suffering, to going through the healing process and beyond If you are in a one-way marriage or relationship, you will find yourself, just as I did, nodding your head through the entire book and will feel as if she is speaking directly to you. You will literally feel the weight of months, or in my case years, of pain, rejection, and frustration lifted with each page that you read. What you won’t find is theoretical garbage from a counseling workshop or hypocritical advice from someone who hasn’t lived the sheer anguish you are suffering. Nor will you find any “candy-coating” of the reality of the person you are with and the blatant disrespect they are showing you and your relationship. Susan will tell you exactly how it is and, in no uncertain terms, your options from this point forward with direct honesty, clarity, and empathy. Susan has taken the agony and frustrations of her own journey with self-serving, uncommitted, unappreciative companions and the subsequent havoc it wreaked with her life and emotions and has combined it with the wisdom of her painstaking search for hope, happiness, and fulfillment in life after what’s his (OR HER) name.” Gentlemen, I tell you as a high school teacher, football coach, and father of four, don’t miss this one… What makes Susan Russo special is that she is genuine. Her care is real and it comes through loud and clear in her writing. She’s compassionate, wise, and will help bring absolute clarity and relief to your painful struggle. She empowers the victim, period…no excuses for the partner’s consistent disregard for you. You do not have to continue suffering nor do you have to feel guilty for making a decision to not live that life any more. This book will be a steady beacon on your journey out of that darkness and to the healthy life God intends for you to live.”
– JC, Wisconsin

 

“Dear Susan, I’m Rishwa from India.. u know in the beginning when i registered for your program i actually just did it cause i was so much in pain.. i was so lonely and sad n depressed and i was like i just want anyone to help me get over my ex in any possible way.. then later on u started mailing me every day giving me tips on “how to get over your ex in 7 days” it was like god has sent me an angel to help me.. i truly n honestly thank you, you have helped me a lot.. today i can see myself happier than before.. sometimes i feel that i wish that i could meet you but it is not possible.. ut i do have a hope that one day we will meet..i just have only one word for you “THANKS!”… thank you for bringing me to life again.. thank you for everything..”
– Rishwa, India

 

“I was feeling so down about the breakup of my relationship with Tom. I summarized what our relationship had been, in a letter to Susan. She had taken each line and analysed it. From my words, she explained my relationship better than I could. She definitely had helped me see everything in clear sight. 4 months of heartache and than I found her, I wish it could have been sooner. After being coached for a day, my world became bright.I no longer wanted to linger onto my past relationship. I would strongly recommend that for anybody who needs that push……… either to leave a partner, analyse your relationship problems, or to get over the hurt……..this woman will help you. I thought that I was unfixable. Thanks again Susan!!!”
– Angela Snow

 

“After breaking up with my longterm boyfriend I thought my life had come to an end. I was very lonely having moved states, not having family I could talk to and not having made any friends near. Further, the friends who knew us did not like him and insisted I could have done better. I of course did not see it that way as I was smitten and had grown dependent on his financial assistance. When he left me I felt used and betrayed. I had tolerated being emotionally abused, taken for granted and being lied to long enough yet I did not get a chance to leave him, he beat me to that game too. So I was left with a wounded spirit and pride. Coupled with self loathing I was now broke and forced to start afresh with no support whatsoever. Finding Susan Russo’s website and the subsequent coaching was a life saver! I do not know how I could have possibly handled that breakup. The strength I derived from her teaching helped me say no to him when he came back apologetic and wanting to save my dire financial situation. Its almost one and a half years later and i still read with great appreciation Susan’s emails and blog forwards. I’m a much stronger person emotionally, I’m doing better financially having began my own small business and having gone back to college. I’m in a relationship where wholesome edification is realised and most of all -i’m hopeful. I’m sure i could not have done it without God and Susan’s help. God Bless.”
– Liz

 

“Susan, Thank you so much for your book of hope! I have purchased every self help book in Amazon and read every Blog in English on how to handle relationships. My sanity depended on it However, what made your book so special was that it was hopeful and in the last chapter (34) you gave the best advice about relying on God. Many thanks for offering hope.”
– Susan Kersch

 

“Two years ago, while recovering from major surgery, I found out that my partner and father to our eight year old daughter, was having an affair with another woman. We had a rather good ten year relationship, or so I thought and this came all so very unexpected and I took it very badly. I felt that my world was tearing apart. I couldn’t and didn’t want to accept what was happening to both me and my daughter, who was so heartbroken after her dad walked out on us. I was struggling and could not find peace within myself. I spoke with many of my friends about how I felt but it seemed that my anger just grew and grew. After having read ‘There Is Life After What’s – His – Name’, I began to FACE THE FACTS and,it also taught me how to ACCEPT THE SITUATION, something I could not do on my own. I am most grateful to SUSAN RUSSO and, for all she shared in her book about her own personal life which,has helped me a great deal deal. I can now say that I live my life with an attitude for gratitude! God bless you Susan and thank you. I would recommend your book anytime.”
