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

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



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.

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!

This book really puts you in your feelings and thoughts. I like how each chapter build off each other. Quotes at the end personal favorite

This book changed my life and absolutely saved me .

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 .

Honestly I have never had a boyfriend but this has helped me in other aspects of my life and it gives me a better understanding and visual and I think this is a book i can come back to if I do ever have a hard heart break! I have so many thing highlighted and noted I would definatley recommend this book!!

Absolutely loved this, gives great insight. And FOR FREEEEE

I love everything about this book. This is so spot on and is definitely a handy little notebook. Thank you for this “guide”!!!

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.

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.

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

This book was a eye opener. The harsh truth but someone needs to say it. There is true Art of Letting go! ❤️

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.

Best book hands down ♡

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

Very helpful in a time of great need. Very eye opening and mental health boosting! Perfect for a young adult!

Very insightful

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

Easy read and overall liked the message!

Thank you. This book is worth reading over, and over.

Love the way it talks to you like if your listening to a friend

This is just what I needed.

Not all chapters resonated with me, but overall… they help get you in the right mind set to let go.

God isn’t real

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

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 !!

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. 💙

Found this book at the perfect time. It’s a must read for everyone!

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 🙏🏻

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.

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

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.

Great collection of different perspectives on the subject

Amazing book!! Helped me to come to terms and let 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.

Helpful and good insight

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

Great 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 ;)

Just what I needed to read.

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

This book is good, it really helps

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..

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

Good book

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

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.

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..

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……

Very good but most of it is about relationships.

Great read put my current situation in to perspective


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

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

loved it!

Reassures that is not easy, or romantic to fall out of love, but is a way to became a better person.

Just a collection of Whining women.

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

Love is mysterious sometime. Never underprice yourself. Always strive to be the best self, and what you deserve will be there for you.

teaches a lot!

In some areas of it it was very direct. Some parts were very true to the title of the book.

This is a good book.

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

Good quotes

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.

One of the best books I have ever read!

This is a great book for healing your heart.

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!

Great read!! Lots of insight and really has me thinking.. great writing piece!

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


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.

This is def a must read if you’re dealing with a breakup or loss. Very direct and straight to the point! I LOVEDD IT and literally couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait to reread tomorrow 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

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.

Amazing book!!!❤️

Lessened learned!

Didnt flow well

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.

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

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!

Great book to read for letting go.

This is a wonderful book to give to anyone going through a breakup. It gives helpful insights and understanding into the different facets 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

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

This little book is loaded with what you need to hear after a breakup. The essays are easy to read & Re very meaningful.

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

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!

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

This book was really good. I could read it everyday. Short but good.

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

i absolutely loved this book! it helped me through so many things and i did t have to make myself read, i wanted to!! i am absolutely in love with this book!!❤️

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.

best book ever. especially if u are going through a breakup!

A quick and must read.

If I would have read this 3 years ago, I would have loved it. I’m in a different headspace now but for the better. There were also many grammatical errors.

Very inspirational and I’ll recommend this to my friends

I honestly don’t know how to feel about this book. I feel like I didn’t get much out of it. The writer just spoke of her experience when men. I was hoping for a book that guides you in letting go not just past relationships, but also friendships, deaths, jobs, etc

Written from one point of view

Would have given 5 stars but skipped one chapter because it was a little hokie.

I think the book was very beneficial. Lol, I with it more so for both male and female but overall it gives you a ton of perspective. Loved it!

Great book perfect time in my life ☺️☺️☺️👌👌👌

It was a relaxing read , I shed a tear so I gave it 5 stars

Great book.. will recommend it to others

Lots of good points.
