Last week when Michael went to the bookstore to buy Origin, he told me that he was buying a book for me: the subtle art of not giving a fuck.
I can guess why he got that book for me. I'm sure he thinks that the book is about not worrying so much about issues. He says that when something in my day goes bad I feel like if all my world falls down.
I just researched about the book and I could not help smiling.
"In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it."
“The opposite of every other book. Don’t try. Give up. Be wrong. Lower your standards. Stop believing in yourself. Follow the pain. Each point is profoundly true, useful, and more powerful than the usual positivity. Succinct but surprisingly deep, I read it in one night.” — Derek Sivers, Founder of CD Baby and author of Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur
I'm not someone who likes giving up, and I hate to lower my standards. I do believe in myself but people says that I am negative because I am very realistic. I wonder what effect this book will have on me but I think it won't work in the way that Michael expect :D
