Description

When you're stuck in your sad/anxious/grieving bubble, how do you get out of it? Lately for me, it's helped to talk to, listen to, or read something from someone who really gets what I'm going through. And listening to today's episode did that for me - because Tyler Feder gets it ALL - losing your mom, being anxious, battling ADHD, and more. 

Tyler is an artist whose work explores big feelings, feminism, and pop culture. I was introduced to her work from one of my mom’s friends last year, who was so sweet and sent me this book after my mom died. It’s called Dancing at the Pity Party - it’s a graphic memoir about Tyler’s mom - her life, her death, and Tyler's grief. It’s definitely different from every other grief book I’ve read. But in a really cool way - because yeah, it’s sad, but it’s also somehow fun, because there’s all these drawings and sweet memories, and reading it just felt really relatable.

If you are struggling with anything - a mental illness, the loss of a loved one, trauma, whatever it is - I think finding someone to talk to or listen to or read their book, from someone who’s gone through something similar, can be really helpful.

So I LOVED talking to Tyler about her art, her grief, her mom, and body positivity.
