Recenzie: Arta subtilă a nepăsării- Mark Manson

arta-subtila-manson

In viata m-am luptat si inca ma lupt cu o multime de lucruri nasoale. Singuratate, depresie, ura, furie, esec, nesigurante si alte lucruri mi-au vizitat viata si si-au lasat amprenta asupra mea.

Acum ceva timp am descoperit un articol intitulat Why I’m Wrong About Everything (And So Are You) si mi-a placut foarte mult. Era exact cum voiam eu sa scriu ceva dar nu puteam încă. Am continuat sa citesc articole foarte bune pe acest blog despre subiecte precum iubire, fericire, paradoxuri si relatii.

Autorul lor, pe numele lui  Mark Manson, avea publicată o carte atunci când am început să-l urmaresc, Models. Am recomandat si aceasta carte pe unde pe aici si o recomand si acum.

Anul trecut prin vara a publicat a doua carte. A numit-o dupa cel mai popular articol a-l sau de pe blog. Traducerea aproximativa ar fi Arta subtila de a te durea in p**a.

—-după 3 luni—

De când am salvat ciorna asta în octombrie 2017 s-a publicat şi în limba română la LifeStyle Publishing. Surpriză plăcută a fost să o văd galbenă şi mândră la masa de noutăţi. (Am păstrat introducerea de atunci fiindcă mi-a plăcut.)

Am răsfoit-o să văd cum este traducerea şi mi-a plăcut. S-a păstrat sensul cărţii în original şi s-a adaptat fără a crea o struţocămilă.

În română i-au spus Arta subtilă a nepăsării. Frumos, elegant, fără p**ă.

Legat de carte pot să te asigur că nu este una convenţională cu sfaturi şi platiduni. Este compusă din poveşti, poante deştepte, trimiteri interesante şi experienţe proprii.

O parte din carte este inspirată din articole. Nu putea să nu includă ceva. Dar nu este doar lucruri spune şi pe blog.

Mark Manson demonstrează că este un scriitor promiţător şi care nu se dezice de la a spune adevărul chiar nu îţi convine. Nu te lasă să îţi plângi de milă sau să îţi doreşti destul de mult ca să atragi. Îţi trage două palme, apoi îţi spune poveşti care te conving că se poate şi atfel, se poate să gândeşti cu mintea ta.

Nu recomand de multe ori cu insistenţă dar cartea asta TREBUIE să o citeşti. Nu o să mori dar o să ratezi ceva foarte, foarte buuun.

Îţi las nişte citate(în engleză) care sper să te convingă:

And his success stemmed not from some determination to be a winner, but from the fact that he knew he was a loser, accepted it, and then wrote honestly about it. He never tried to be anything other than what he was. The genius in Bukowski’s work was not in overcoming unbelievable odds or developing himself into a shining literary light. It was the opposite. It was his simple ability to be completely, unflinchingly honest with himself—especially the worst parts of himself—and to share his failings without hesitation or doubt.

It lasers in on what you perceive your personal shortcomings and failures to already be, and then emphasizes them for you. You learn about the best ways to make money because you feel you don’t have enough money already. You stand in front of the mirror and repeat affirmations saying that you’re beautiful because you feel as though you’re not beautiful already. You follow dating and relationship advice because you feel that you’re unlovable already. You try goofy visualization exercises about being more successful because you feel as though you aren’t successful enough already.

The key to a good life is not giving a fuck about more; it’s giving a fuck about less, giving a fuck about only what is true and immediate and important.

The more you desperately want to be rich, the more poor and unworthy you feel, regardless of how much money you actually make. The more you desperately want to be sexy and desired, the uglier you come to see yourself, regardless of your actual physical appearance. The more you desperately want to be happy and loved, the lonelier and more afraid you become, regardless of those who surround you. The more you want to be spiritually enlightened, the more self-centered and shallow you become in trying to get there.

Because when you give too many fucks—when you give a fuck about everyone and everything—you will feel that you’re perpetually entitled to be comfortable and happy at all times, that everything is supposed to be just exactly the fucking way you want it to be. This is a sickness. And it will eat you alive. You will see every adversity as an injustice, every challenge as a failure, every inconvenience as a personal slight, every disagreement as a betrayal. You will be confined to your own petty, skull-sized hell, burning with entitlement and bluster, running circles around your very own personal Feedback Loop from Hell, in constant motion yet arriving nowhere.

Sunt o mulţime de citate pe care le pot pune aici dar o să te las să citeşti cartea şi să te bucuri singur(ă) de ele. 😉
