How To Let Go Of Someone You Love by Julian Demarco is a non-fiction self-help book to aid readers that are ready to "Deal, Heal & Forgive After Loss." Broken down into eight distinct and interconnected chapters, Demarco leaves no stone in the arsenal of moving beyond grief unturned, no matter who it is that one is mourning. These include, but are not limited to, what it actually means to let go, digging deeply into ourselves to address the pain, making changes, rising up and moving away from guilt and isolation, accepting help and the importance of self-care, knowing we are only capable of changing our own response, and looking ahead, among many other things.

How To Let Go Of Someone You Love could not have landed in my lap at a more serendipitous moment. Julian Demarco's powerful narrative came to me in a week where the anniversary of my young mother's death coincided with myself being the exact same age she was on the day she departed this world. I have struggled with guilt as people told me I should be grateful and tucked myself away to lick my wounds in peace. I was wallowing and doing the very thing Demarco advises against, but her words and the empathy they are cloaked in were helpful. Most poignant to me and relating back to what others were telling me I should be feeling fell under chapter six, Nobody Has The Right To Tell You How To Feel. I needed this and am in the process of forgiving myself for a situation over which never I had control. This is a profoundly impactful book, and I would give it a whole bucket of stars if I could.

Letting go sounds good in words and on paper, but anyone who has experienced this challenge can tell you that it’s never easy. Julian Demarco’s How To Let Go Of Someone You Love: Deal, Heal & Forgive After Loss is not your typical self-help guide on the subject. It does not pretend to be a magic tonic that heals your emotional and mental wounds in an instant. Instead, it guides you in a step-by-step process to release the pain that hinders you from moving on and reaching your goals. Having had her own share of profound loss, the author applies her own hands-on experience to arrive at a comforting conclusion that fulfills her need for certainty, and it may well work for you. From understanding the beginnings of how to let go and embrace change, through to interventions like forgiveness that provides closure, it is a self-help work that gives you something to look forward to.

Julian Demarco is an empath who understands pain and sorrow. But this doesn’t mean that she will butter you up with sweet words and cradle you in your darkest hours. If there is one epiphany that I learned from reading this self-help book, it is that the reason we often have trouble letting go of the ones we love - whether it stems from death, divorce, or break up - is that sometimes, the person that we have become attached to is the only one that makes us happy. But Demarco makes it clear that letting go is possible. You are going to like her straightforward and unapologetic approach that doesn’t lose that tone of genuine concern for your well-being. How to Let Go of Someone You Love is not limited to her experiences but also presents the education and skills that she has accumulated in dealing with grief. You may want to consider reading this book as part of the small steps that you can take toward letting go and healing.
