The Art Of Letting Go by Thought Catalog Book Summary


We often struggle to let some people go especially when they made that decision. We question the universe, we question ourselves and we question everyone around us but we never truly get our answers. Letting someone go takes time, patience and commitment to actively stop ourselves from relapsing and thinking about that person again. The Art Of Letting Go helps you understand why, how and when you should let someone go so you can move on and never look back.

Ehh.. More about relationship (than anything else) written from the perspective of someone who married her ex and started a business w/ another ex.


just something to read. honestly, i didn’t enjoy this book. i realize it’s a bunch of different “essays” thrown together but most of them seemed disheveled and broken up. there’s a couple that are ok but that’s it.

Not religious. God isn’t real

The art of letting go. After a break up this is a good read. I’ve cried for more then half of the book, bc I know wat it’s saying it’s true. Great read


The art of letting go. I never read, this book made me realize that everything does get bette eventually. I read 35 minutes without stopping because the sentences were just pulling me in more.

Wonderful!!. This book is amazing and has really been helping with my depression! I’m so glad I came across this book!


Easy read. Easy read and overall liked the message!

I love this book. This book has helped me take a few steps forward in ending toxic relationships. I so love it!!


Good read if you’re struggling to let go. Not all chapters resonated with me, but overall… they help get you in the right mind set to let go.

How do I feel?. After reading this (I’m a 22 year old male), I have no other words other thank thank you! Sometimes it wasn’t for me, but when what you were saying matched up, it made me realize I’d understood most of this long ago, I just needed to “hear” someone else say it. Honestly though, thank you so much!


Amazing book. Absolutely loved this, gives great insight. And FOR FREEEEE


Five star! ⭐️. Awesome book! I shared this with my gf from work since she’d going through a tough time letting go of her toxic relationship. I’m a victim of domestic violence and toxic relationships so I understand how important this book could be to someone who truly doesn’t know how to let go. Thank you 🙏🏻


Love letters. It’s a good read.

Radical Acceptance. 76 pages of FREE wisdom that’ll aid you in letting go and acceptance. Underestimated. Get this book.


Break ups are hard .. This made me understand my feelings so much. I just got out of a 8 year relationship about a month ago and letting go was hard well still hard but reading this made me feel like I wasn’t alone and that the author of this book is going through this experience with me .


Great read. I love the book ! It’s breviary it’s simple truth, it’s relevance it’s spot on insight.


Easy Read. Quick easy read, very easy to digest. Would recommend for anyone going through a self- love journey or wanting to learn some tips for after a breakup


Great book.. Loved it. Couldn’t stop reading! So motivational.


Helped with my Self-Awareness Journey. Really enabled me to reflect and realize where I went wrong and where I didn’t with myself and in my relationships. Gave me a different perspective on how to approach and reproach things in my life. Great read! I can read this again and again to grow, gain more insight and understanding for my life journey.

We will have. I don’t know


highly recommend. it’s an amazing book. very informative and helps rejuvenate the soul


Best book. this book made me realize so many things. me reading it made me feel safe and not alone. i never thought i would read a book all the way till the end. this book just gets to every point and is so relatable. in every single paragraph theres something relatable. this book changed so many things in me and im so glad cause its for the better.


Enjoyed. It was good


Seems Relationship Oriented. I was hoping this would be about letting go in an existential way, but after 30 pages, it keeps coming back to relationships. Maybe it changes later but I crashed and burned with all the relationship references.


Just the book I needed. Every chapter was different yet each chapter was amazing. I found myself in tears, even while reading in public. A perfect read whether you are letting go now or still letting go from the past. 💙


Great book for attachment. I love how it was written from many writers perspective on the topic of letting go

@anime girl at sun

The art of letting go. This book was so amazing and interesting to me it helped me a lot because my cat died and I just couldn’t let go so thanks I liked this book so much

Like to play solo

I get it now!. I walked away from abuse but couldn’t let her go from my thoughts, it haunted me, I think I now have a better understanding of why I was not letting go of what was just plain bad!


Art of Letting go. Amazing book. this book helped me with my healing process tremendously. Wow opens my heart, mind and eyes to accept a lot of things about my breakup that’s fresh and so much uncertain yet painful emotions i was feeling. as i was reading this book, a huge weight lifted from my chest and I felt my healing process was finally reaching or approaching the end zone. i feel so much better and have clarity to my broken heart. acceptance and gratitude was a huge take way for from this book. thank you so much for sharing your wise insights.

Boogie OhYeah

Great Read. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥


Therapeutic. Great book to help you realize , let go & appreciate it all. I loved it, especially the quotes at the end!


THE ART OF LETTING GO. This was a wonderful book to read!! I really hope “THOUGHT CATALOG” will put more free book to read on here I really didn’t enjoy it and it was a quick read for me. I love how some of the authors really could connect with some of the feelings and trails that I myself am going through. Definitely worth the read !!


Not trauma informed. Definitely not written with trauma in mind and heavy on the religious talk. So many ways to trigger or activate trauma in this reading. If you have love, relationship, religious, or family of origin trauma - please pass on this book.

Creepy Jon

Good upbeat read. Great collection of different perspectives on the subject


Good book. It’s a good read for someone who doesn’t know all of these things, that it teaches you and how to let go when that’s the choice you made and have to live up to it.


It was a good read. It allowed me to do a lot of reflecting on relationships of the past. Realizing that everybody goes through some sort of heartache. That you’re not alone. How in someway shape or form everybody’s relationship ends just the same. Let letting go is not only good for your mental health but essential. There’s a reason why things are in the past.


The Art of Letting Go. A very though invoking and well written book. I only would have preferred it if the author being a woman; would have made the book a non-sexist perspective. By that I mean, using only gender neutral terminology rather than from a woman’s perspective. Very good book.

10/10. I’ve never cried to a book until this one. The authors break down what it is to be brokenhearted. The advice they give on letting go is constructive. From when I started reading this book to when I finished it, I received so much clarity on how to use my pain to improve myself. And be thankful for the lessons learnt from that experience.


Thought full book. Makes you think in ways I wasn’t sure I could , very inspiring and great to read


Lovely read. This little book is a good read for those trying to get over someone as well as for those who wouldn’t mind a little wisdom or a pick-me-up. It’s quite short and completely free, so you’ve got no excuse for not giving it a go ;)

Taree rarie

Comforting. Just what I needed to read.


All the feels. This book is packed with situations and comforts you in knowing that you are not alone.


Amazing!!!!!. This book has helped me so much with a current issue I’m facing, I’ve grown as I person and feel wiser


Worth a read. Such an easy read... It really opens your eyes to see another way about things. It's not only helps you but it will help you dealing with other people that come to you for advice. I really enjoyed reading this..

Sangita karki

Good one. Good book

Must read. I would highly suggest you to read this.. if you're having difficulty on letting go of the things or people arround you that you like or loved but you just can't let them go..


Can't believe this is free. This book is hands down the best book I have ever read. Definitely a must read for anyone going through a break up. I'm about to read it for a second time.


The art of Letting Go. This book is good, it really helps


Forever grateful. My last relationship was the one where i put all my eggs into the same basket - The one that I was so determined to see cross the over the finish line because of the effort and time that I had already put into it. I had forgotten that the most important part of any relationship is my happiness (not to say that your partners isn’t important too) and whether it serves you well. I was too busy trying to keep her happy that I lost myself in the process. This book bought me back to reality at a time that I was lost. It bought me back to my senses. There’s nothing I could do to repay the author of this book for the amount that this book helped me. As I always say, take what you understand out of it and leave behind what you don’t. It’s not just a book to me but more so a lifelong friend, who reached out their hand to me when i was in a time of need. Thank you I’m forever grateful

Vic Camper

Heartbroken? Read this.. Solid advice from a range of sources addressing all aspects of heartbreak. A timely read for me, and a worthwhile one.


Good book. Helpful and good insight


The art of letting go. Great read


Repetitive. A good book for teenage girls who are going through breakouts or had one/more but ridiculously repetitive.

Billy(el negro)

Good quotes.. It helped a lot, I took some notes, it has some grammar mistakes but I enjoyed it. Thanks


Not too good. Regular


The book that made the penny drop. After finding out my fiancé had been unfaithful, I started this book lost and filled with negative emotions. 59 pages later, I have complete clarity and realised the true power of letting go. This book has set me free……


Read it. Great read put my current situation in to perspective


The art of letting go. Very good but most of it is about relationships.

Eric Haggerty

Барна Христина

Enjoyed. It was good


You found me. This is the only closure I needed… thank you for making me realize so much plus my worth.


Four of five stars. Only because the ending was blah. The start of the book was wonderful and I was highlighting and screenshoting but then the book kind of just went stale.

Sara kinngz

The art of letting go. Everything in this book is the reason why I’m able to move on with a broken heart and still stand strong

Yarelith Torres

Amazing. Amazing book!!!❤️


Easy and motivating read. Such an easy read and I just simply enjoy reading it over and over again.


Such an amazing book!!. I am currently in the process of a divorce but I started reading this book when I saw the signs before the discussion/argument came. I would read a little then stop because of other life events but as soon as I picked this book back up, I read chapters on issues I JUST FACED. Like I was meant to stop reading where I did. I totally recommend to anyone facing a breakup, divorce, separation. It really does bring light to a lot of what we are feeling. Not only women but men as well. Great book!


Eye opening. Beautiful I loved the different story lines it made me feel okay to feel the emotions I feel


art of letting go. I liked the book but didn’t like how it referred to the person I want to let go as a he.

Jawnny angel

Unexpected. I’m not sure how I didn’t realize that this is a compilation from many different authors, most of which were women. Which implies that it’s mostly men than break the hearts of others. This probably has a lot of truth to it, but it’s not the whole truth. I still got a lot out of it, even if it wasn’t what I expected.

Ivy's Healing

This is a true gem!!!. This book has helped me with letting a lot of things go. Thank you for this gem. Take care of yourself and stick to your boundaries or build boundaries to protect your heart and energy.


good and useful. Suggested


Awesome. This book is amazing. I dont know why its free.


Nice content. Pretty good book could have, more lengthy chapters but worth a shorthead


Good read. A little dramatic, but if you can separate that, and take it the lesson, the drama in it is only to grasp your attention to receive the message.

Alexis Sears

Helpful!. this was such a helpful book. I just got out of a relationship and helped me so many times not text them in a spur of the moment!


Book. Good quotes


Thought provoking. There were some grammatical errors, but overall I loved the book. The insight is definitely there and it brought reassurance to some things that I was already feeling.


Love Drunk…. Decent book. Great quotes. Highlighted some wonderful and meaningful parts. Overall, it’s a book for mainly women, on getting out of our head and learning to move on. It would have been a great book for me in my early 20’s, not as a middle aged married woman. I highly recommend it for late teenagers and early 20’s. Great concepts!


Top list. One of the best books I have ever read!


Everything. I loved this book for many reasons but the main reason is because when It was over I didn’t want it to be.

Goddess Energy

The Art Of Letting Go!. This is a good book.

Guadalupe Murguia

Love the whole thing.. It’s amazing how you are not alone in the world. That there’s thousands of people going through the same thing. Thanks to these words I found a lot of strength within myself.

Lady beast 23

Great Read. Great book to read for letting go.


Five star! ⭐️. Awesome book! I shared this with my gf from work since she’d going through a tough time letting go of her toxic relationship. I’m a victim of domestic violence and toxic relationships so I understand how important this book could be to someone who truly doesn’t know how to let go. Thank you 🙏🏻


Amazing. Amazing amazing book! Thank definitely recommend to those who are actively working on themselves.


Great read. This book opened my eyes- I loved every page the truth in these lines will give you another perspective 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 👍🏼

Madeleine Eaux

Truly Wonderful. I’m healing from the breakup with my first true love. This helped so much.


Horrible. Just a collection of Whining women.

Lee loe

The art of letting go. It helped me overcome my sadness; it was a great book to read and help you be a better person.


Couldn’t stop reading!!. Great read!! Lots of insight and really has me thinking.. great writing piece!


“The art of letting go”by Rania Naim. Reassures that is not easy, or romantic to fall out of love, but is a way to became a better person.

Tori from Texas

Letting Go and Moving on. Great Book!


Amazing. Loved this book, helped me so much!

John F kidney

10000/10. I love this book so much. It has very good details about a breakup and how to heal. It’s so good. I love it.
