    "Amazing book, was worth my time."
    Where does Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can not compete it with others book, it was amazing in its own way. the result matters the most, which was very satisfying.


    Which character – as performed by Sorrel Brigman – was your favorite?

    Sorrel Brigman delivered each word with a soft and loving tone. she narrated the book in a very impressive way.


    Any additional comments?

    I regretted my entire life because of one dreadful decision. I lost everything. it made my life turn upside down. afterwards, trust was least of my concern, anger, anxiety, being worried, living in a regret, holding a grudge, these were the aspects of my life. it was deteriorating. I used to wear a forced smile 24/7.
    This audio book changed me from inside, now I try to see the life positively, with a real smile. what I learned is life is not a piece of cake, it will throw things at us, it is up to us how we cope with them, and the best answer I received is with a smile. my attitude towards others entirely changed, I am polite, calm, could trust people. it lighted me of hope.

    "A lot to think about!"

    I picked this book up on a whim since I was on a road trip to Seattle and back, and have been on a really big self help and non-fiction kick. I get this one to try it out, and it was really informative and interesting, although not quite the book for me. It is for sure still 5-stars, since it was well written and I enjoyed the narration. I don't know that I got as much out of the book as some of the others I have heard recently, but I feel like some of the stuff that is in there would be perfect for one of my friends to hear! I think the book is written in a way that will really help her. So, although it wasn't something I walked away from feeling changed I feel like it is just what my friend needs to hear to really help here in some things she is going through!

    "Brilliant!"
    If you could sum up Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret in three words, what would they be?

    Helpful, positive, and insightful.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is all about letting go of things that hold you back from enjoying life. It teaches you how to completely let go of worry, say No to embarrassment, and obliterate regret. By letting go of these 3 things you can fully live in the present without torturing yourself by "rerunning" embarrassing moments or dwelling on things you wish you hadn't done. The section on worry is great for learning how to free yourself from anxiety and start doing things you've been avoiding or you've been too scared to try.

    I absolutely love the philosophy behind this book. Leading a life full of worry, embarrassment, and regret is no way to live. This book is all about letting go of the things that hold you back from enjoying your life as well as negative events that happened in your past. Life is too short to dwell on the past or fear the future!

    "It is a spirit lifter"
    If you could sum up Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret in three words, what would they be?

    Happiness is a word that is thrown around so much that it can easily lose its meaning. But as hard as happiness can be to truly define, it can be even more difficult to attain. Everybody wants to be happy, of course, but what if they’re not? Is happiness something that comes and goes like the weather, or is it something that we can develop and nurture within ourselves?

    We as an individual stresses and worries about a lot of things; some serious, others, rather pointless, most of us on this planet are suffering from worry, embarrassment, and regret, scale may vary but most of us has some issues in life.

    Jennifer Alison provides dozens of positive affirmations as well as imaginative and occasionally even scientifically tested ways to bring happiness into your life every day,
    The advices are really very simple and straightforward to understand yet when we start implementing, you will feel it is a big task earlier, but after a few weeks of practise you will start enjoying what is call the present moment or mindfulness.

    I highly recommend her book as well this audible.


    What does Sorrel Brigman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Sorrel has very impressive speaking style which I think was perfect for the book category, I felt goosebumps many times listening to her.

    "A Great Way to Accept the Truth and Be Happy"
    What made the experience of listening to Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret the most enjoyable?

    The examples I got to hear in this book were different than what people usually tell you which is why I found this enjoyable to listen to.


    What other book might you compare Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret to and why?

    I have always found every book different and unique which is why I’m not the type of person who compares judgements and solutions. However, the solutions mentioned in this one are totally incredible in their own unique way.


    Have you listened to any of Sorrel Brigman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this is my first one and the experience I had makes me think of going for more of his books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened it in my weekdays so yes there were some pauses in it.


    Any additional comments?

    I’m feeling a lot better after listening to this and everything Jennifer has sketched out in this is totally relatable. So, it’s a thumbs up from me.

    "LIVING A HAPPY LIFE FOR A BRIGHTER FUTURE"
    What did you love best about Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret?

    I love the fact that the Author treated the three elements separately, i mean Worry, Embarrassment and Regret.The Author used some relative quotes and their authors, thus leading me into further research by finding out more about the authors of these quotes.The points in the book were well explained and the narrator projected objectively and thus building up a sense of "action, move and let go" in my mind, she wasn't too fast or slow.
    This book is a must read.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really liked the chapters that discussed about worries and how it affects us both mentally and physically leaving our minds unstable and it leads to loads of problems we observe in societies today, such as drug abuse, alcoholism and lots more...


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret?

    one thing i have learnt from this book that i will surely apply, is that i have to stop worrying about the past or feel guilty and regretful continually. i have learnt that worrying only takes from you and leaves you with nothing but imbalanced health state.


    Any additional comments?

    True happiness comes from Living free from the past and looking up to a better and brighter future, this book has surely taken me one step further to building my mind and expectations, taking nothing but less about the past and put your energy working towards a better and more suitable future.
    Jennifer Alison is an Awesome writer and she has proven this once again, look forward to listening to more of her books...

    Honestly delivers exactly what it says. This offers practical steps to move toward achieving inner happiness. The author clearly instructs the reader on the path to happiness with insightful illustrations and brilliant clarity. It is practical and heartfelt, as well as extremely applicable to everyday life. Moreover, it brings up profound issues that are typically ignored or overlooked and presents steps to approach and deal with those things - a step by step path. I Hope this review helps you decide to purchase this audio book!

    "Empowering!"

    "When worry ceases to function as a constructive problem solving device and becomes instead a near constant obsession of life's uncertainty, it begins to cause problems"

    Dr. Alison's explanation of worry's proper place allowed me to tackle excessive worry more effectively. It was incredibly helpful to appreciate my worry's ability to assist with intelligent decision making, in order to then recognize when it overstepped its bounds.

    I am a fan of the helpful exercises, (What WOULD my life look like without worries) and the positive guided meditations.

    Overall, the performance is pleasant and positive, and the book gave balanced and practical advice on empowering the audience to overcome worry, embarrassment, and regrets.

    "Goodbye regret!"
    What did you like most about Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret?

    For years I've felt cursed because of my social anxiety disorder and I almost gave up hope. Since nothing had helped me before, I thought this audio book wouldn't be much different, but THANK God it is! I learned some new ways on how to process negative emotions better and how to stop repeating negative thoughts over and over. I re-listened it a couple of times and now I worry a lot less and feel much more confident in social situations. I am very happy that I gave this book a chance.

    Inspiring, thoughtful and confidence


    What other book might you compare Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret to, and why?

    That's a toughie, not read any books like this most concentrate not on why but more how to fix a problem. So the solution is still built on sand and not the solid rock needed for true progression


    What about Sorrel Brigman’s performance did you like?

    She brings across the sensitivity and emphasis on the parts of the book you need to pay more attention to than normally


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Let go and be yourself without guilt

    "Sorry? I am no longer..."
    If you could sum up Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret in three words, what would they be?

    No more worries.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how the book was so inspiring and positive. I could just keep on listening all day long and still not be bored. I got away from my sad and depressed self who I loathe at the moment the moment I was done listening to the last sentence.


    What about Sorrel Brigman’s performance did you like?

    She was calm, composed with her performance and her soothing voice was perhaps the reason to this book becoming even better than the written version so I really recommend it to every person out there.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    To be all honest here, I did listen all night long after I was regretting because of one tiny little mistake, made me forget all about it. Worked like a charm


    Any additional comments?

    I really recommend everyone, even if anyone's not even close to a nervous breakdown to listen and enjoy the soothing words of the narrator. It really is a happy book so don't be shy, I myself am sending some copies to a few friends and family.

    "An Absolute Life Changer"
    If you could sum up Let Go of Worry, Embarrassment, and Regret in three words, what would they be?

    Wise. Up-lifting. Encouraging.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book is bound to become a personal improvement classic. It has a way of simplifying life, helping you reach for lightness and let go of darkness. The theory is that by holding on to worry, embarrassment, and regret, you're keeping yourself rooted in the past and the future, rather than living life in the present. Jennifer Alison explores common thoughts and behavioural patterns that hold us back from true happiness. For me, the sections on worry and embarrassment were the most helpful. I've been crippled with worry and panic attacks for most of my life and I've found that my fear of embarrassment has only increased my worry over the years! Learning how to let go of embarrassment (and how to stop replaying embarrassing moments over and over in my head) has already had a profound effect on me. And now that I've learned how to let go of my panic attacks and worry, I am truly so much happier. What a great book!

    I personally found it to be hugely beneficial. This book helped me so much to let go of a generally negative feeling I had much of my life. It was not an overnight cure and it did take work on my behalf too but i am just relieved to finally found a book full of practical actionable advice and not just endless tests! Really recommend this book, it would appeal to a wide range of people.

    "Definitely helpful."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, because it is succinct. It avoids waffle whilst getting to the heart of worry, embarrassment and regret.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many of the quotes were very powerful.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to anyone trying to understand low self-esteem. It is easy to follow and offers many "aha" moments. It does not promise a 'quick fix' because that is not possible. Healing is a process that requires hard work, and this book is a helpful step along the way.
