LaRissa Paras found herself rushing around, never taking time for herself, and feeling inadequate in all areas of her life. She realized that the world wasn't going to change for her. If she was going to be truly content, she would have to take charge of her own needs and learn to be kinder to herself. "Here's the Thing" is a love letter to the self. Filled with inspiration, actionable tips, and next steps, it will show you how to set boundaries, ask for more, be more present for yourself, and ultimately, create the life you want.
In this frank and funny book that redefines "self-help," Paras shares her hard-earned life lessons through personal stories and inspiring letters to her younger self, touching on everything from self-acceptance to engaging with people to finding your place in this world. Highlights include: - Fat Isn't a Feeling - How to Love Your Body - Toxic Positivity and Sitting with the Suck - Mindful Self Compassion - Buzzword: Mental Health - Stop "Shoulding" on Yourself! And more. It's never too late, or too early, to start living your truth.
