Guest Post – The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Thank you Ali from Share to Inspire for this review.

Title: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Author: Mark Manson

Genre: Self-help book

As the author itself said, it’s a self-help book, and it’s for people who hate self-help books. The book is all about improving yourself. Although the approaches are counterintuitive, you will find them useful and powerful. In the quest of improving ourselves, problems are inevitable. But this book won’t tell you to look for the bright side and keep pushing yourself. It is the opposite, stop trying and believing in yourself. Mark’s suggestions are rare, vulgar, and different from every self-help book I have read but I found them to be profoundly true and helpful.

The subtle art of not Giving a fuck is a page-turner and life-changing. Reading once is not enough for me, it is worth rereading it. Mark Manson emphasizes that everyone cares about something. Everyone gives a f*ck about something. And you gotta choose wisely what those are. Another underlying message in this book is to be comfortable with what you lack. Embrace what is uncomfortable and sometimes pursuing the negatives results in positive. For example, our failure makes us realize our shortcomings. If you want to be liked by people, you have to be comfortable with the fact that not all people will like you. If you want to be successful, then you have to befriend failure. 

Truth is problems and problems never go away. They will always be replaced with a new one. And the question from the book that will give you the insight to improve your life is “Which struggles are you willing to take?” The author takes relationships as an example. A lot of people want a perfect-looking relationship but they’re not willing to take the struggles of building one. These include awkward and hurtful conversations, failed dates, and rejections. You can’t have your desired result, without choosing and going through your struggles. 

I could go on and talk more about the book, but I will leave the thrill to you. I am always left in awe every time I put down the book, so go ahead and read the whole book.
