( ) If you need a gentle yet entertaining reminder of why your anxiety can’t be allowed to run amock, this is it. It’s not about becoming indifferent to life, but instead about deciding what is most important to value and devote your mental energy towards. Everything else, you should really just not give a f*ck.
The author has fun with his writing as well as provides some deep, researched insights into this philosophy. And it’s true, there are way too many circumstances in life that we often ruin for ourselves simply by overthinking them. Manson successfully provides many real-life examples of where this has occurred. He left no doubt in my mind that I need to re-evaluate some of my own priorities and double-check that I’m frequently looking at the “bigger picture”.
