"Highlight Real" touches on authenticity and vulnerability in a social media driven society

Author Emily Lynn Paulson writes of recovery, healing, and motherhood in her thought-provoking memoir.

SEATTLE — As useful as social media can be, it can also be used as a highlight reel of some of our best moments, or #LivingOurBestLife. Reconciling with our genuine selves and our online personas can lead us towards more honest living and human connection, as author Emily Lynn Paulson found out. 

Her new book, Highlight Real: Finding Honesty & Recovery Beyond the Filtered Life explores the challenges of living an authentic life both online and off. She touches on her own past as a mother and offers a modern look at what happens when the filters disappear and real life emerges.
