Publisher's Summary

Part memoir and part guidebook, Share Your Stuff. I'll Go First. is the invitation you've been waiting for to show up with your whole self and discover the intimate, meaningful relationships you long for.

In spite of the hyper-connected culture we live in today, women still feel shamed for oversharing and being publicly vulnerable. And no matter how many friends we seem to have, many of us are still desperately lonely.

Laura Tremaine says it's time for something better. Openness and vulnerability are the foundation for human growth and healthy relationships, and it all starts when we share our stuff, the nitty-gritty daily details about ourselves with others. Laura has led the way in her personal life with her popular blog and podcast, and now with lighthearted self-awareness, a sensitivity to the important things in life, and compelling storytelling, Laura gives you the tools to build and deepen the conversations happening in your life.

Laura's stories about her childhood in Oklahoma, her complicated shifts in faith and friendships, and her marriage to a Hollywood movie director will prompt you to identify the beautiful narrative and pivotal milestones of your own life. Each chapter offers intriguing and reflective questions that will reveal unique details and stories you've never thought to tell and will guide you into cultivating the authentic connection with others that only comes from sharing yourself.

I felt seen.

This book’s breakdown of chapters was what I needed to think about all of the “stuff” in my life thoughtfully and reflect on the bad and the good. The conversational nature made it feel like I could grab a glass of wine and talk to an old friend. I would definitely recommend it to anyone, but especially those with anxiety, as a way to get to the root of your thoughts and hear her own encouraging words and understanding as she talks about her anxiety.

Thought provoking and compelling

This book causes introspection, it is both light hearted and extremely deep and meaningful. It is easy to listen to but encourages you to think about your own life and experiences and how they have shaped the person you are and are becoming. Worth the listen and I plan to purchase the hard copy. Very well done.

misleading

I thought it was suppose to be about friendship but it was just an autobiography. Not a great one at that. If you don't move to LA to be a big famous somebody, then you're not doing it right. She pats herself on the back for this continually. I'm sure she's nice, just don't think she's a great writer or influential. But I'm a happy in my small town nobody 😉, so maybe I just don't get it. lol

I really tried

Having never read this author before, I gave this a fair try. It was recommended by another author I respect on instagram and I fell for the add. I thought it would be a deeper dive/reflection into how to share more meaningfully with our peer groups....but it’s more of a memoir about someone I have very little in common with. I got about 1/4 of the way through this title and had to return it. I just couldn’t relate to the high-society settings and backgrounds and surface level observations from those memories. More so I think it’s just another book from a publisher trying to squeeze value out of a social influencer’s followers.
