A Lesson in Self-Acceptance from Affirming Animals
From the author of the bestselling book, You Can Do All Things
Step into a state of mindfulness: Depression and anxiety are topics that can be uncomfortable to talk about, but that doesn’t mean they should be avoided. If anything, it means we need to be more aware and have more conversations about them. With the help of her adorable illustrations, art blogger Kate Allan (known through her remarkably popular Tumblr blog as “The Latest Kate”) urges us to be mindful of our mentality.
Work through anxiety and depression with the help of enlightening words: Allan, who suffers from anxiety and depression herself, understands what it’s like to deal with feelings that are difficult to fight through. In this book, she provides the personal kind of encouragement that she herself needs to hear. These encouraging words, along with writing prompts, can help readers sort through and express their feelings.
Practice self-love through self-care: Kate Allan’s creative journal meets us where we are—in the midst of the feelings that say we’re not enough, we can’t handle this life, we won’t make it. Her whimsical art and simple words lift trampled spirits and combat thoughts that lead us to believe our weirdness makes us weak. Young and old, we are encouraged to love ourselves exactly as we are.
In this collection of affirming illustrations, It’s Your Weirdness That Makes You Wonderful, you will find:
- A source of colorful and creative validation and affirmations for the struggles you face and the feelings of depression that may accompany them
- Anxiety-reducing visual art and journaling prompts to better understand and process your mental health
- Support animals in book-form that come along with you wherever you need them!
Readers of Made Out of Stars, My Friend Fear, Start Where You Are, and You’re Weird will find further comfort and healing in Kate Allan’s It’s Your Weirdness That Makes You Wonderful.
