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.

Meh

FML. That's 2hours and 42 seconds I'll never get back. Might appeal to younger listeners.

Wow this made me feel so much worse

Some truths said, but I'm not sure I needed to hear them straight after brake up. Some chapters just sound like bitter rants, from someone who is hardly in any position to advice you about anything

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tough thoughts

I was hoping to get more of a desire to let the person go after this book and instead it made me feel sad and wanting to try and work things out even though I know we never will. I'm going to listean to it again and hope the message comes at me different the second time around. You can sense the pain in the book of separation and heartbreak it definitely makes you want to cry. edit 8/17/19 I have read this book maybe four times since my first entry of a review. my ex is even come back into my life and then walked back out. Love Is A Dangerous and hurtful event and I'm going to listen to this book for a fifth time I just hope continue to work through this process, of this thing where we let go.

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.

Fantastic little chapters that put things in perspective

I absolutely loved this book. It really put things in perspective, I especially liked the chapter on the wrong timing, not receiving that good morning text, and leaving a good thing behind - to look forward. Highly recommend this already revisited twice to hear some of the things again.

Some parts are difficult to swallow

If you're in a moment of healing and internal growth, the first part of the book is perfect.
Now you go onto the next few chapters say mid way onwards and all you do is basically cry your eyes out and go back to the starting healing point.
Id say, choose the chapters you want to listen to, before you do.

written for young people

The writer still holds on to her first lover in every word she writes...so its hard to believe she is letting go. Not a book for mothers/ wifes who have to let go of a husband.

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!
