I don’t know if any of you could tell, but the month of July was terrible for me. I was feeling overwhelmed and depressed. To the point that I slept through most days. Not good and at the end of the month, I thought that maybe I should try something to help myself out. Que me looking up self-help books. Before I started reading any of them, a friend suggested this one. I am glad she did.
Astrid’s Description: Are you sick of affirmations and the “look on the bright side” suggestions? Do you feel like those self-help books and useless and unhelpful? Then this is the book for you!
No, seriously, this is the one for you. Standing in front of a mirror every day and telling myself that today will be a good day and I will be happy NEVER helps. It doesn’t; because the fact is that life sucks. Bad things happen, and no matter what you do they will always happen. Everyone has problems because it is LIFE! This book is about that.
It is about placing you F*cks in an area that is beneficial to you and your mental health. It is about setting the right mind frame to feel accomplished. For example, I have written three Novellas and one novel, but I feel like a failure because none of them are selling the way I want them too. The Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck helped me see that I was placing my success on other peoples opinions. No matter how hard I try, I will never be able to control those opinions. I need to put stock on myself. I need to see my success in a way that I can control.
So thank you, Mark.
Mark, goes heavily into each aspect. I was not left questioning or doubting. I know what I need to do and how to do it.
As I stated earlier, I borrowed this book from a friend, but after the first chapter, I bought it for myself.
Even if you do not feel like you are struggling, I still suggest giving this book a read and actually searching inside yourself to see if you have an area you could give fewer F*cks about.
That is all for today.
Be free and keep reading!
