I welcome your review of my book, Forget Gratitude.
What’s all the fuss about gratitude? Suppose your life is complicated by stress, bills, or online trolls who prosper by making your life miserable? Readers are searching for ways to build confidence, a personality trait that begins with self-love and self-acceptance. This book, Forget Gratitude, shows the path to preserving mental health and wellbeing.
Forty percent of Americans report struggling with anxiety. They are anxious because of pressure to meet other people’s expectations. Consequently, negative thinking cripples them. This book shows people how to shut down self-doubt and depressing thoughts. It illustrates how accepting and loving oneself increases confidence and peace of mind. Bonus: readers will learn to resist bullies and online negativity.
This nonfiction book takes The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson or Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins to another level. Forget Gratitude helps people break loose from other folk’s expectations and let go of their fear of missing out. Stop chasing gratitude and embrace your true feelings.
The book is 132 pages; 16k words. The indie imprint is Baby Buddha Books; pseudonym for Xolani Kacela, Ph.D.
