Unoffendable: The Art of Thriving in a World Full of Jerks (Paperback)
Not on our shelves. Usually ships in 2-5 days
'Being offended' has become a common occurrence in a world of increasing censorship, inclusive language-guides and safe-spaces. It's a good thing to strive for more kindness and compassion. But wishing that humanity becomes entirely inoffensive is pointless because there's always something that offends someone. Fortunately, there's another path...The ancient Stoics observed that some things are in our control and others are not. We cannot control the foul language of people, opinions that oppose our own, and that there will always be a bunch of trolls that intend to trigger us for fun. What happens in our environment isn't up to us. But what is up to us, is the way we handle it.Many choose to spend heaps of time and energy on the mere words of others, which withholds them to pursue meaningful goals and to be at peace in an unruly universe. What a waste Unoffendable explores philosophical ideas backed by personal anecdotes to figure out how we can thrive in a world full of jerks, bullies, and people we simply don't agree with.
