Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck
Once in a while, I read books that are not related to school. Now, that I’m working full-time and taking a break from school, I am free to read any book that I like. But, let it be known to you that I mostly read non-fiction books that usually fall under the self-help category.
Why did I start reading this?
Honestly, I discovered that book through the artists that I admire. Also, from friends and acquaintances across social media and real life! They highly recommended it to me! So, I gave in. I bought a copy.
Personally, the genres I like when it comes to reading fall under this category. Books like this one share a more personal touch. It gives a sense of real talk that we all need. Authors make it seem they are just talking to us like they’re one of our close and trusted friends. They share their experiences and how they deal with things in life in their own ways.
My friends who read this previously are really very strong when it comes to suggesting this book. They said a lot of positive thing about the book especially for creatives like me. It possesses a great power that anyone will need during the course of their life. And honestly, I couldn’t agree more!
After finishing the book, I felt a change in the way I see things.
What do I think about it?
After reading the book for the first time, it gave me power over my doubts and other negative thoughts. For the past few years, I got these thoughts and doubts that hindered me from giving and doing the best in the things I do.
With work, I began doubting myself that I could try writing under other niches that I’m unfamiliar with. On the other hand, with calligraphy, I began to lose my touch with practicing it. Then, I felt I lost the skill to write creatively and beautifully.
The book helped me overcome all of those and I viewed things differently now. I began to think positively about my skills, picked up my favorite brush pen and journal. Then afterward, I saw myself writing again. I poured out all my unfiltered thoughts and wrote it down.
It felt liberating and very comforting. To those who find it hard to say words, it’s best for you to try writing it down and sending or giving notes to people you intend to communicate with.

Would I recommend it?
Yes, of course.
If you are looking for a book to talk you out of a negativities in life, this is the book for you. This is certainly the real talk that everyone must hear. Some may find it hard to listen to the bare truths as it may hurt their feelings and themselves in general. However, we will struggle to grow if we keep on avoiding it.
Sugarcoating the truth may complicate things for you. It can distract you from the truth and prevent you from realizing your mistakes or the things you’re doing wrong.
