As a rule, I generally stay away from any “self-help” or “love yourself” books, especially those written by celebrities. They always feel like one cliché after another. However, the minute I heard that Chrissy Metz was going to be releasing a new book I was interested. I, of course, can’t get enough of her character on This Is Us and was hoping it might include some tidbits from the show. I decided to go ahead and give it a read hoping that it wouldn’t be as bad as some others I have read.
I once saw a meme that said, “there is no therapy like a conversation with your best friend”, and that’s exactly what this book felt like. I felt like I was trading stories with my best friend. Right away Metz showers you with awkward childhood stories and her tale of sitting down to lunch with Oprah. She uses these personal stories to share the life lesson she’s learned from it and how it’s helped her to become exactly what she is today. I couldn’t put it down. I was captivated by her storytelling and the humor she can bring to each page.
I am writing to share an update on behalf of all of us at The Girly Book Club as we manage COVID-19. As we all know, the events of the past days and weeks have been unprecedented and our team continues to monitor and navigate this rapidly changing situation with the rest of the world.
At the GBC, we care deeply about doing what we can to keep our people and communities well – we are grounded in this intention, which makes difficult choices a little easier to make.
As a result, we have cancelled ALL of our global in-person monthly meetings for March. As a result, we will be holding a GLOBAL GBC Book Club, which we hope will appeal to our members far and wide (more info below.)
We’ll be honoring all tickets sold for March meetings and transferring them to April’s meetings or you can request a refund if you’d prefer.
