There are few things that can feel more challenging than making friends as an adult. In I'll Be There (But I'll Be Wearing Sweatpants), authors Amy Weatherly and Jess Johnston address common obstacles to true connection and offer a confessional, hilarious, and practical guide for building friendships in the middle of this messy, rollercoaster life.

If you've ever wondered why it seems like such a struggle to make and maintain friendships as an adult--you aren't alone. The number of Americans who claim to have no close friends has drastically increased over the last few decades. Loneliness doesn't care what age you are, how many Instagram followers you have, or where you call home. It doesn't care how put together you appear to the outside world. Women have a collective wound that only authentic sisterhood can heal.

It's time to ditch cliché, empty friendship advice that leaves us feeling even more alone than we did before. Amy and Jess, creators of the popular online community Sister, I Am With You share an easy-to-follow road map to the place we all desperately want to be--standing beside other women who see us, know us, and love us for who we truly are.

With real-life vulnerability and I've been there, too wisdom about building deep and satisfying friendships, Amy and Jess show us how to:

  • break free from unhealthy habits that keep you from experiencing real connection
  • find the confidence to live freely and without fear of rejection
  • be a good friend even though you can't be a perfect one
  • heal from a friend breakup--and find the courage to try again
  • intentionally pursue friends in everyday life

You deserve a community of loving, supportive, there-for-you friends. If you're ready to change the way you think about friendship, I'll Be There (But I'll Be Wearing Sweatpants) is your new go-to guide for navigating the ups and downs of everyday life with your nearest and dearest. Let's start making friendship a priority--together.
