📚✨ the subtle art of not giving a f*ck BY Mark Manson

Few things i picked from reading mr manson's book. These quotes speak to me so much and i want to share it with you guys!

🍁 Often the only difference between a problem being painful or being powerful is in the sense that we chose it and that we are responsible for it. we don't always control what happens to us. but we ALWAYS control how we interpret what happens to us, as well as how we RESPOND. 

🍁 Being wrong opens up to the possibilities of CHANGE. Being wrong brings the opportunity for GROWTH. 

🍁 This, in a nutshell, is what "self-improvement" is really about: prioritizing better VALUES, choosing better things to give a F about. 

🍁 Without conflict, there can be no trust. Conflict exists to show us who is there for us UNCONDITIONALLY and who is just there for the benefits. 

🍁 Healthy relationship is NOT about controlling one another's emotions, but rather about each partner supporting the other in their INDIVIDUAL GROWTH and in solving their own problems. it's not about giving a F about everything your partner gives a F about. it's about GIVING a F about your partner, REGARDLESS of the Fs he/she gives. that's unconditional love baby!

🍁 In perspective often happen at the tail end of our worst moment. It's only when we feel intense pain that we're willing to look at our values and question why they seem to be failing us. We need some sort of existential crisis to take an objective look at how we've been deriving means in our life and then consider changing course.

🍁 Life is about not knowing and then doing something anyway. All of life is like this. It never changes. Even when you're happy. Even when you're farting fairy dust. Even when you win the lottery and buy a small fleet of jet skis, you still won't know what the hell you're doing. Don't forget that. And don't ever be afraid of that.
