Publisher's Summary

Letting go is not a process that comes naturally to us. In a world that teaches us to cling to what we love at all costs, there is an undeniable art to moving on - and it's one that we are constantly relearning. In this series of honest and poignant essays, Heidi Priebe explores the harsh reality of what it means to let go of the people and situations we love most - often before we are ready to - and how to embrace what comes next.

Not for me

Was more like a love story. Did not encourage strength of letting someone go, but instead ruminated on and on about loving and missing someone.

Letting go means letting go, not constantly reminiscing about the one you're letting go of. I'm sorry but I would not recommend.

Didn't think it was possible to feel WORSE

Bought this book thinking it would be helpful and it only made me feel worse. This book is like listening to a person's diary when they were broken up with. Couldn't even get through the first 15 minutes. I will be returning it.

This has nothing to do with let go

It’s contradiction after contradiction. She’s a good writer but these chapters don’t go together or help with letting go of someone. Maybe it’s me but I don’t understand how anyone found this helpful and not more depressing about ending a relationship.

Eh

I had emotional moments. I think I was looking for more of a how to rather than hearing about what seems to be her experiences.

Heartffelt and Deeply Healing

Such a beautiful affirmation that we are lovable, worth of love, beautiful, precious, no matter if anyone else refllects that back to us. Just hearing her voice is so comforting and nourishing to my heart and soul. Listing is like listening to the kindest voice I could have inside of me and I can also imagine it coming from the one I love and am letting go of. If you are grieving someone you love and surrendering to being single again then this is one of the most healing gifts you could give yourself. Highly recommended and I will be suggesting this to others going through divorce and especially those in the Rebuilders program.

Enh

I regret having spent money on this. I listened to the whole thing waiting for that meaningful bit that never came. Some of it seemed on target, but I feel this is more of the author’s personal perspective and much of it wasn’t relevant to me.

In my pain

This was the second book I bought in this category. The book helped me process my pain. Some days I'm fine other days I'm a total mess, wondering if it was my fault. I appreciated the narrator, her voice was comforting and when I found my self drifting back into the abyss of sadness I turn this book on. I keep looking for his texts or waiting on his phone calls and I don't know why. But this author's point of view is helping me get stronger day by day.

Partly Poignant meets Cheesy Fairy Tale Ideology

There were some really good points made about life and becoming strong and complete in who you are in singularity. But then she would totally lose me. It may be that she is targeting a specific audience; one that seemed to be for young college girls lost and heartbroken in a fantasy love cycle. I would have enjoyed it more if she presented to a broader spectrum of women. I suggest perusing through and taking from it the bits that are useful. I was literally gagging on several chapters though.

Warm and therapeutic

I saw the description and had to buy it. Worth it. Its like a heart to heart with a best (wise) friend at every stage of dating/relationships.

This is not your typical how to surviwe a break up

This is sooooooo much more! This is discovering a pattern, understanding it and learning to accept that change is a natural part of our lives and how to work with it and understand it. This is about being kind to oneself, and to the other that we've lost.
This is a very mature approach, that i can see myself coming back to, over and over again. As it help me to understand that all our beginnings, have their ends, but some arrive sooner and more unexpected. Thank you Heidi!

Fantastic book!

Fantastic short book to listen to. I would highly recommend this especially if you’ve been/ going on through a break up and you want some clarity on those thoughts and feelings that we all experience.
