✓ Read à To Love and Let Go: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Gratitude by Rachel Brathen Ý To love and let go, love and let go, love and let go It s the single most important thing we can learn in this lifetime p 193 In her second book, To Love and Let Go, Rachel Brathen courageously shares her life and stories of loss and love Rachel shares her personal experiences with loss, but then shows the reader how these experiences cultivated a deeper sense of love and gratitude within her.
If you ve been following Rachel on Instagram, you will know that a lot of her writing in this book has stemmed from writing meaningful captions for her photos Rachel is honest, and that honesty is carried through in this book Suffering, loss, and heartbreak are all difficult emotions, and life can knock the wind right out of you in the most unexpected ways Regardless of the source of our pain, we have the power to choose how we deal with a less than ideal situation Rachel shares her journey through various coping mechanisms, and how she has been able to glean some of life s biggest lessons from her experiences with pain.
For readers looking for an autobiography, this is not your book While Rachel shares many events of her life, the focus of this book is on how she let her difficult life experiences teach her about love, even in the wake of knowing an end would be inevitable In one of my favourite sections of the book, Rachel asks, isn t that what we are all here to do To love and to say goodbye and to love again p 193.
This book is an easy read in terms of writing style Rachel writes in a way that makes you feel like you are having a conversation with her, rather than reading a college text book Her writing is personable and the warmth of her personality radiates from the pages However, this book is definitely not an easy read when it comes to content Rachel has not had an easy life despite all of her success, what really led her to where she is today lies in how she chose to adapt to the cards she was dealt.
Regardless of our current position in life, I think most of us would agree that sharing our personal stories of tragedy and heartbreak is difficult I d even venture to say some of us even view it as terrifying Rachel has not only shared her stories, but she has brazenly put herself out there to millions of people I commend Rachel for being so vulnerable, and her vulnerability has led me to this realization every person has a story that could break your heart A handful of those stories are written about in public ways such as blogs, music lyrics, or a book like this one Many of those stories are kept private or shared with a select few people Regardless of how these stories are held, people have all kinds of outlets for processing their pain How lucky we are to have a book such as To Love and Let Go that might help us put into words some of the emotions that are hard to make sense of I thank Rachel for her bravery in being so vulnerable by putting her book out there sharing her story might just be the comfort that somebody is desperately seeking.
Bought the book and listen to the audiobook along while I read Rachel is such a beautiful being and this book definitely is reaching and exceeding my expectations Can t stop listening It s hard, but it s awakening It s important to love and to also let go Can t wait to finish it Highly suggest Lost my father a few months ago and this book is forcing me to dig deep into myself in all the best ways.

This book I have never felt so many emotions while reading a book I cried through the hard parts and smiled with the happy bits Such an amazing book Rachel Brathen does such a great job engaging her readers and taking them on the journey of her life I highly recommend this book to anyone who is struggling right now as this book shows that things can and will get better.
I have been struggling with writing this review because I do follow Rachel on Social Media and I like her But I keep seeing all these re posts from her about people saying the book changed their life and quite frankly, there is nothing LIFE CHANGING about this book It is written well, albeit very girly university girl there is no Pulitzer in her future and that s not the point of the book , but it is VERY self serving and self indulging Which, I guess its her memoir she can write what she wants, but it borders on narcissitic at times I also find it suspiciously uncanny how many conversations she remembers WORD FOR WORD I can t remember word for word conversations from last week, and somehow Rachel remembers conversations from her teenage years word for word Also, to take Rachel s word for it, she literally is akin to THE LIGHT In the Ayauasca ceremony, SHE saved everyone from the dark place When spiritual people meet her, they tell her she has a higher purpose She claims she used to KNOW not guess, KNOW what song would play next on her iPod when it was on shuffle because she is just SOOOO in tune with the world queue eye roll Also, she seems to have an other worldly ability to sleep and then suddenly wake up There are SO MANY instances in the book where she somehow falls asleep and wakes up hours later Yata yata then I fell asleep and woke up 3 hours later This happens constantly in the book On social media, she talks often of all these things she needs to be able to SLEEP, like she STRUGGLES to sleep But in the book, she mentions time after time how she just fell asleep in the middle of X and woke up hours later It became almost funny for me to read I also struggle with her support of OSHO who MANY people have outed as the money hungry charlatan that he was He had 96 ROLLS ROYCE WAKE UP RACHEL There is a lesson to be learned in loving something and letting it go, of course, but to be honest, if you follow Rachel like I have for years, you are familiar with all of the stories here The book just allows for details All in all, it s an OK book There are some powerful moments in it because she has had some powerful moments in her life and she recounts them well But PLEASE, don t buy it thinking it will change your life That s just nonesense Only YOU can change your life Not a memoir from a privileged Swedish girl.
