review Addicted to Unhappiness

Ed a certain reality based on this nconsciously It is this invisible aspect that makes the cycle hard to break The book is split into two parts first exploring how this paradigm is set Billionaire Baby Dilemma / The Wrangler up and then looking at how you can break the pattern I don t necessarily buy that this affects everyone though it may to greater and lesser degrees I really liked that this got me thinking about my own background If you re tired of self help books that don t seem to have much substance and you want to attempt to get to the core of anynhappiness that you may have you may find this book to be of helpI received a free copy of this book but that did not affect my reviewMy Someone recommended this book to me so I was a little surprised that I got so little out of it Perhaps I didn t find much value in it because I am not addicted to All Night with the Boss unhappiness so I could not relate to what the author was talking aboutThis book seems to say that people whos I very much appreciated what I learned from this book and that I need to examine my life for areas where I am satisfied with beingnhappy I ve come to live with things that are very wrong but I don t do anything to address them because I accept them as normalUnfortunately the solutions to solving these issues always involve intentional focused hard work There are no shortcuts But realizing there is a problem is the first step and always leads to some improvement So that s the good news I had never thought of any of this before I do not believe this is completely true for all people But I do think it has relevance in most people s lives If nothing else it is very informative on what others think I voluntarily read and reviewed this book in exchange for a free copy Reading this was alright but I don t think i will read this book than once i just don t agree with the whole bookthere were parts I liked and excerpts i enjoyed and that I will put in my journal but that s about it The premise was not anywhere close to what I was thinking this book was headed towards It just didn t float my boa.
