As a twenty-something therapist, Jennifer takes her readers through the turbulent and very much relatable stories she herself and her clients have experienced.
The book dives into various stages that can help one understand their own transitions, and provides questions into helping them understand themselves throughout, before, and after a transition may occur.
Jennifer so eloquently writes deep into the struggles of relationships, personal development, career, friendships, identity as she depicts the dark hole many feel throughout their 2-year decade of life post-graduation. She highlights themes of uncertainty, mortality, perfectionistic tendencies, societal expectations, and the self-standards that contribute to the unfulfilled narrative we have written ourselves into.
I Love Me More is a book of choice. It’s choosing to discover yourself, values, worth, mental and emotional state in order to tap into the hardest imbalance of transition. And then, it’s adapting the global phenomenon of imperfection and the turbulent transitional twenties and thirties you will inevitably find yourselves in. Jennifer expands the definition of what traditionally has been considered normative and taps into the sincerity of dissonance. Jennifer’s message allows her readers to feel as though they are not alone, yet among this instability they find they are exactly where they need to be.
