So many of us feel lonely, unfulfilled, or trapped--in our roles and relationships, in cycles of self-sabotage and bad decisions, by our patterns and misguided attempts to feel happy or to feel something. According to existential psychotherapist Sara Kuburic, it doesn't have to be so difficult. Really.
The answer is found in facing ourselves--whatever version that might be, regardless of whether we like the person we see reflected back to us. It's about accepting full responsibility for the choices and actions that create our reality. It's about finally taking ownership of this person we call our "Self." It's about realizing that it's on us to figure out the two most essential questions: "Who am I" and "Why am I here?" and then to live accordingly.
In It's on Me, Kuburic unpacks "self-loss," giving us new vocabulary to understand this rarely talked about experience and offers tools she's used for years to help clients recover. Self-loss becomes apparent when we do not recognize ourselves in our actions, words, or relationships; when we lose sight of who we truly are, and feel the pain and emptiness from performing or observing life, rather than living it.
Revelatory and empowering, Kuburic shows how we can stop sleepwalking our way through the lives we don't want and step into our most vibrant, authentic, and meaningful Self. In doing so, we unlock a deep sense of connection to our innermost being, and to those around us. (Dial Press)
