When we are young, we are taught to respect other’s opinions and beliefs, even if we disagree with them. The question is if we merely respect other’s opinions or beliefs or we take them on to feel loved and appreciated.
In 2015, Sarah Knight challenged her readers to find and respect their own opinions and beliefs in her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don’t Have with People You Don’t Like Doing Things You Don’t Want to Do. Writing about everyday stresses of work, family, etc, she urges the reader to de-clutter mentally and figure what/who is important and what/who not to give a f*ck about.
Reading this book was very refreshing. Ms. Knight is funny, direct and most importantly, speaks to the reader about defining their life and their priorities on their terms.
I absolutely recommend it.
