Everything Is F*cked

Everything Is F*cked

by Mark Manson


Most of us believe that if we can just avoid the pains and discomforts of life, we'll be happy. With technological advancements and our growing access to various services, we're trying to make our lives easier. We buy things hoping they'll solve all our problems. But as a result, we're becoming more anxious and depressed.

Mark Manson is the author of mega-bestseller The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, released in 2016. In Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope, Manson suggests that anger and sadness are not the opposite of happiness, but that the root cause of unhappiness is hopelessness.

The way we try to fill our current void of hopelessness is destructive. But with hope, we get the strength to move forward as we believe in a better future.

Favorite quote

Hopelessness is the root of anxiety, mental illness, and depression. It is the source of all misery and the cause of all addiction.
