Y’all know that I constantly caution against toxic positivity (unless referring to Whitney Goodman’s fantastic book ‘Toxic Positivity’), so it’s about time we get around to talking about this book, right? Join us in May to discuss the phenomenally popular best-selling book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” by Mark Manson.

[Note: Message me to attend in person, as space is strictly limited! Otherwise, join us on Zoom 🙂]
This meeting will be facilitated by a full-time Life Coach (yours truly) and former university educator with over a decade of international experience in facilitating discussions across groups from various cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We value inclusivity 🏳️⚧️🏳️🌈🖤💛❤️ and insist on respectful discussion. Wanna suss me out ahead of time to see if we’ll ‘gel’? Then feel free to have a snoop here ☺:
From the book jacket:
Everything we’ve been told about how to improve our lives is wrong. Now superstar blogger Mark Manson tells us what we need to do to get it right.
For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. Drawing on academic research and the life experience that comes from breaking the rules, Mark Manson is ready to explode that myth. The key to a good life, according to Manson, is the understanding that ‘sometimes life is messed up and we have to live with it’.
Manson says that instead of trying to turn lemons into lemonade, we should learn to stomach lemons better, and stop distracting ourselves from life’s inevitable disappointments chasing money, success and possessions. It’s time to re-calibrate our values and what it means to be happy: there are only so many things we can worry about, he says, so we need to figure out which ones really matter.
From the writer whose blog draws two million readers a month and filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humour, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a welcome antidote to the ‘let’s-all-feel-good’ mindset that has infected modern society.
At this meetup, we will discuss the author’s insights relating to what we actually need to do (or not do) to live better lives. And, as usual, if you don’t get a chance to read the book, you are still encouraged to attend! Message me if you’d like to attend in person, as space is limited. But you can always join us on Zoom as well 😊
