Publisher Description

Brutally honest, often hilarious, hard-won lessons in learning to love and care for yourself from a former vice president at Comedy Central who was called “ahead of her time” by Jordan Peele

“You’re going to want Tara Schuster to become your new best friend.”—Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Untamed

“Compelling, persuasive, and useful no matter where you are in your life.”—Chelsea Handler, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Life Will Be the Death of Me

By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom. By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess. No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing. She realized she’d hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help.

Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara’s path to re-parenting herself and becoming a “ninja of self-love.” Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and shows how to

• fake gratitude until you actually feel gratitude
• excavate your emotional wounds and heal them with kindness
• identify your self-limiting beliefs, kick them to the curb, and start living a life you choose
• silence your inner frenemy and shield yourself from self-criticism
• carve out time each morning to start your day empowered, inspired, and ready to rule
• create a life you truly, totally f*cking LOVE

This is the book Tara wished someone had given her and it is the book many of us desperately need: a candid, hysterical, addictively readable, practical guide to growing up (no matter where you are in life) and learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it’s-so-cheesy way.

For some, but not for me

If you are a young 20 something and feel lost, read on. This may hit you perfectly in the heart.

Read the sample first, it’s very representative of the book. If it’s not your style, then definitely move on. It was not mine but I gave it a chance because of the reviews and wish I’d chosen something else.

The all caps SCREAMING on every third paragraph was brutal to read. Text message slang, borderline childish, sometimes condescending writing style was not for me. When she said something that was almost beautiful, she made it goofy, made fun of it and almost denounced it after and that destroyed the depth for me. Again, maybe not for someone else. I read a ton of non-fiction. Her stories were not written to speak to me, but to someone else. That’s okay.

If you are looking for substance, depth, action and awe-moments, there are better options.

Lovely and Authentic

Somehow this book found me right when I needed it to. I loved every second of the tender stories, advice, and rituals for growth that were presented in this book. This is a warm and fuzzy resource for anyone who is learning to love themselves without judgement. This is a book that I will refer back to over and over again.
