The Courage to Be Disliked, already an enormous best seller in Asia with more than 3.5 million copies sold, demonstrates how to unlock the power within yourself to be the person you truly want to be. Using the theories of Alfred Adler, one of the three giants of 20th-century psychology, The Courage to Be Disliked follows an illuminating conversation between a philosopher and a young man. The philosopher explains to his pupil how each of us is able to determine our own life, free from the shackles of past experiences, doubts, and the expectations of others.

This book helped give language and a system to becoming more comfortable in your own skin. The idea that all of life is divided into tasks was very help to imagine. No need to try and complete any task that is not your own. This book talks about how “trauma” doesn’t exist. Don’t let that deter you. The lessons learned from that idea are helpful, but I don’t think I’ll be walking around telling myself or others “your trauma isn’t real” any time soon. It just helps to give power to the here and now. Overall great book! I will probably listen to it again just to make sure I remember everything.
