Happy to See You! Overcoming social awkwardness and learning how to live with others (again)
Original title: Content de vous voir ! Surmonter la maladresse sociale et apprendre à (re)vivre avec les autres
Have we all become socially clumsy?!
The era we live in is destabilizing. And not only for the shyest or the inveterate introverts among us.
But the distancing and confinement have made us all awkward and hesitant. And there is no doubt that our new daily life will reveal a social awkwardness in each of us. Breaking the ice and leaving our personal bubble will become our small victories. Nicolas Méra delivers with a healthy dose of humor all the secrets to being at ease in society.
“Personally, I find humanity in a fleeting smile, in a gesture which betrays an obvious discomfort, in a lack of taste so surprising that it becomes spectacular. The clumsy people of this world — the stay-at-home lovers, the introverts, the reserved, the embarrassed and the confused — they are my heroes. As modestly as possible, this book aims to pay them the homage they deserve. And, today more than ever, we seem to be in need of their insights and their humble philosophy.” – Nicolas Méra
