On the second page of the book we read the first part of Julian’s journal entry. He states the following:
“Everyone lies about their lives. What would happen if you shared the truth instead? The one thing that defines you, that makes everything else about you fall into place? Not on the internet, but with those real people around you?
This book states its “thesis” very early on, do you agree with that we all have one thing that defines us?
He goes on to write “maybe telling that story would change your life, or the life of someone you’ve not yet met” - Lets pretend that we do indeed have one thing that defines us, do you think sharing it would change your life in a meaningful way?
I find it ironic that I am indeed sharing so much of my life with you all on the internet. Do you think sharing on the internet is easier? Does that make it less authentic?
Lets get the discussion going in the comments below! I’ll check back with new questions as we go.
