Stitches by Anne Lamott

Stiches by Anne Lamont

Summary: There is not a person alive who hasn’t questioned what life means or what their purpose is on the planet. When our lives are off-balance, it is difficult to see any meaning at all in this crazy world. The stitches that hold all our experiences together are the communities we find solace in. The answer, if there is one, to the eternal question of life’s true meaning surely lies in togetherness and love.

Key Ideas:

  • It’s easy to find meaning in life when everything is going well, but it can be tricky when the going gets tough.
  • Life is a hodgepodge of good and bad experiences, and the latter have a lot to teach us.
  • Societal pressures often discourage sensitivity, causing people to downplay difficult and painful experiences.
  • Being together with others is a profound experience that gives us a sense of meaning.
