DescriptionShowing up is what turns the people you know into your people. It's at the core of creating and maintaining strong, meaningful bonds with friends, family, coworkers, and internet pals. Showing up is the act of bearing witness to people's joy, pain, and true selves; validating their experiences; easing their load; and communicating that they are not alone in this life. If you're having trouble connecting with those around you, know that you're not the only one. Adult friendships are tricky!!! Part manifesto, part guide, The Art of Showing Up is soul medicine for our modern, tech-mediated age. Rachel Wilkerson Miller charts a course to kinder, more thoughtful, and more fulfilling relationships--and, crucially, she reminds us that "you can't show up for others if you aren't showing up for yourself first." Learn to fearlessly . . .
- define your needs, reclaim your time, and commit to self-care
- ask for backup when times are tough--and take action when others are in crisis
- meet and care for new friends, and gently end toxic friendships
- help your people feel more seen (and more OK) overall!
