Let’s be honest, the world can be a pretty crappy place sometimes. And nobody is making it any better by being overly sensitive about everything. Rather than letting everything ruin your day, sometimes you have to just put the kibosh on caring and accept that things just aren’t always that great. But if you’re having a hard time coming to terms with that, you could always get a little help from Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.
This text, which is billed as “a counterintuitive approach to living a good life,” is a humorous (yet still well researched) self-help guide that ditches the feel-good coddling attitude of its brethren. Instead, we are left with a more realistic and effective way to look at the world that surrounds us. The idea here is not to declare everyone a winner, nor is it to put everyone down, but rather to recognize, acknowledge, and accept our human limitations. Care less in order to enjoy your life more. This book retails for $15. [Purchase]
