What To Give a F*ck About with Mark Manson | AMP #147
Best-selling author Mark Manson walks readers through the thesis of his masterwork The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. On this AMP, he brings his no-nonsense perspectives to the show to help us examine the social programming that compels each of us through every day. We veer from personal relationships into global relations, and then back again- deep into intimacy. We also break down why it’s so important to own our shit, and what giving less f*cks is really all about.
Hi Aubrey, I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this podcast. Some of the things you guys talked about are so relevant to my life at this point in time. One thing you talked about was the need to stop chasing people to try to the change them and learning to accept them as they are. Mark talked about his relationship with his father suffering from expectations that Mark had about the ideal father. Not long before listening to your podcast, I had the same thought about my own relationship with my dad and how our relationship was similarly impacted. My father is no longer with me but I’ve learned to not carry on that mentality in my relationship with my own son. It’s hard for other people to understand this when I explain it to them, maybe because they’re in a different mindset. Anyway, it really made me feel really good that others feel the same as me, and that my sense of thinking isn’t crazy! I came across your podcast through Tim Ferris and I’m glad I found it. Thank you so much! Keep up the great work. :) -Paul
