Let me tell you how the book, “Eat Pray Love”, changed my life.
I found this book during one of the lowest, darkest seasons.
There was a breakup that I was getting over, and I remember falling into this state of depression where I was unable to sleep at night. Because I could not sleep at night, I tried everything I could to relax– from sleeping pills to stalking my Ex on social media.
I was unable to eat much food so I sustained myself by drinking breakfast shakes and eating soup. I lost over 30 pounds over a two-month span.
The depression was real. And the struggle was near impossible to overcome.
There was a library down the street from where I lived. And I don’t know what got me to think that I should start reading books, but I did.
I remember pouring over the self-help books in hopes that I would find answers that could address my post-relationship struggles. I was looking for a solution that could cure my depression and help me stop thinking about my freakin Ex 24 hours of the day.
One of the books I picked up was called, “Eat Pray Love”. Man, this book totally wrecked my world! In a very, very good way!
It not only changed the way I was living my life, but it completely changed my mindset.
So much so, that was able to snap out of the breakup breakdown I was in. Because of this book, I was able to lift myself up from the rock bottom I had hit, pick up the broken pieces of my heart, and start to live life again.
So what is the deal with this book? Why is “Eat Pray Love” such a pivotal book that changed me and could possibly change you too?

Overall, I read this book to escape my own reality. But by the end, I was ready to face it and overcome my depression.
Upon reading the description of the “Eat Pray Love” I thought I was simply going to be reading a memoir of a woman who did some fun stuff in her life. I went in thinking and assuming that this would be a light read to help me take my mind off of the real stuff I was dealing with.
But this book gave me so much more.
And yes, coming from two completely different faith backgrounds, her literal steps are not ones I would follow, but her ambition to pursue more in life, love, and within herself was there. That, I cannot ignore– it was just too inspirational. It lead me to the life that I’m living in today.
I believe that God can show up anytime, anywhere, and He definitely showed up for me in this book!
Hopefully, it’s something that helps you too!
