Section one, in which I try really hard to be a good kid for my parents, miss out on a normal youth because I was fat, and then date someone who sucks -- Section two, in which I try really hard to impress thirty men, discover Skinnygirl piƱa colada mix, and learn how to do eye makeup -- Section three, in which I get very tired of trying so hard, realize I was wrong about almost everything, and save my boyfriend's life.
Summary, etc.:
Like so many women, Benoit spent her formative years struggling to do the "right" thing-to make others comfortable, to take minimal and calculated risks, to live up to society's expectations-only to realize that there was so little payoff to this tiresome balancing act. Now, in Well, This Is Exhausting, she shares her journey from aspiring good girl to proud feminist, and addresses the constantly shifting goalposts of what exactly it means to be "good" in today's world. Including topics as varied and laugh-out-loud funny as how to be the life of the party (even when you have crippling anxiety), navigating the disappointments of the dating world, and why no one should judge you for having an encyclopedic knowledge of reality TV stars, these essays are sure to move, motivate, and charm you.
