The Courage To Be Disliked: How to free yourself, change your life and achieve real happiness by Fumitake Koga, Ichiro Kishimi


Approach this book with caution. There are many concepts that are harmful including: mention of denying trauma, a harmful approach to looking at abuse through a lense that feels a bit self-gas-light-y and similar mistreatment of reasoning behind self harm. That being said, this book contained some gems of wisdom and some much needed reminders. If you are the kind of person that is able to take what you find helpful from teaching and leave the rest then it’s for sure worth a read.
