Your Turn: How to Be an Adult by Julie Lythcott-Haims
During our tumultuous adult years, we may feel lost sometimes. We study, work, find love, and then what happens next?
In the book, the author swears that there’s “no track, no path, no lockstep plan that equals adulting that you’re somehow failing to adhere to” and that “you get to decide where to be out there, what you’re doing, and how to navigate toward it.”
Nevertheless, she walks you through the process of becoming an adult, focusing on self-work such as financial matters, how to get along with others, being good, stopping pleasing others, taking care of yourself, how to cope when things are difficult, and picking yourself back up, among other things. It’s full of simple and practical but broad pieces of advice that can be applied at various stages of adulthood.
