The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life is the first book by blogger and author Mark Manson. In it Manson argues that life’s struggles give it meaning, and that the mindless positivity of typical self-help books is neither practical nor helpful. It was a bestseller.
Because when we give too many fucks, when we choose to give a fuck about everything, then we feel as though we are perpetually entitled to feel comfortable and happy at all times, that’s when life fucks us.
Not giving a fuck does not mean being indifferent; it means being comfortable with being different.
When most people envision giving no fucks whatsoever, they envision a kind of perfect and serene indifference to everything, a calm that weathers all storms.
