How To Always Be Unhappy by Dr. Harsimran Singh

Atlas Books sent me a review copy of this book, and I was surprised to find that it is actually useful. Most self-help books seem to express obvious things. This one does, too, but this author looks at self-destructive habits from all sides.

For one thing, it discusses what you can do to MAKE yourself unhappy instead of telling you not to do it. It then explains how you can cause it in your life. Also offered is a discussion of how to change your behavior or your way of thinking so you don't get caught in this trap.

Some of it just plain common sense, but when you're the one with the problem, it can be awful hard to look at it objectively.

The core concept here is that happiness has to come from within. You can be happy, or you can be unhappy. You decide.

If you'd like my copy of this ARC, please leave a comment here on the blog and email me at info @ bookfaerie.com (take the spaces out) with your name and address and why you would like to read this book. I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Someone once told me "It is easier to be objective than subjective" and that quote has ALWAYS stuck with me. It's funny because one day I was trying to explain something to my husband from a woman's point of view and he did NOT get it. A few days later I was talking to a friend of his because he was going through the same thing with his other half. I told him the SAME THING I told my husband who said the light suddenly went off for him hearing me explain it to someone else regarding someone else. LOL
