What is the best book you’ve ever read? (Doesn’t have to be mnemonics)
Preferably pick .
Best non fiction book I’ve ever read is definitely “A new rational guide to living”.
Basically, it explains that emotions are caused by activating events, which are interpreted by your belief system. There are both rational responses to events, and irrational ones. You tell yourself things that cause you to feel a certain way. Rightfully calling something unfortunate is different from calling it horrible and how it shouldn’t have happened.
Couple days ago something happened personally, and I started thinking those things “oh how horrible, how could this have happened, etc”. Then I caught myself and realized; “Nothing really changed, did it? It’s unfortunate that it happened, but that’s all it is; it’s not ‘horrible’ etc”
It’s a bit difficult to explain, I’ll post my whole notes when I finish them.
A New Rational Guide to Living
