F*ck Feelings.

Post by Blaidd Drwg » Mon May 02, 2016 6:33 pm

Here's a quickie review of a book that would catch the eye of many IGX'ers.

It's pretty decent if you've not been exposed the the idea that being a soft cunt and a whiner (as well as traditional talk therapy) is probably bad for your mental health. Its tongue-in-cheek shtick is probably good for a lot of people. Also, they do cover a huge amount of ground. The chapters are arranged by "problem" ..so if you're problem is say, an asshole spouse that's driving you to drink, the chapter on assholes may resonate. I got nothing out of it. The chapters in my wheel house I found useful and I thought they cleverly snuck in high level concepts in palatable way. If you're a fan of the Handbook for Constructive Living, F*ck Feelings will disappoint....though there are a lot of people who probably should read HCL that who would barely be able to handle Bennet's FF. All in all, 4 out of 5 stars for anyone in gen pop who thinks their "feelings" are anything they or anyone else should give a fuck about.

Here's another take by a pro with interviews, it may sway those on the fence one way or the other.

These lyrics sum up my feelings for you Blade. Please substitute the word "girl" with "dude."

Feelings, nothing more than feelings
Trying to forget my feelings of love
Teardrops rolling down on my face
Trying to forget my feelings of love
Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it
I wish I've never met you, girl
You'll never come again
Feeling, woo-o-o feeling
Woo-o-o, feel you again in my arms
Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you again in my heart
Feelings, for all my life I'll feel it
I wish I've never met you, girl; you'll never come again
Feelings, feelings like I've never lost you
And feelings like I'll never have you again in my life
Feelings, woo-o-o feeling it,
woo-o-o, feeling again in my arms
Feelings

My feelings couldn't possibly survive with the overwhelming amount of bourbon I consume.

I looked this over a few times in the bookstore and each time I do, I think it looks good and I should buy it, but then I'm like "F*ck it".

I'll probably buy it eventually and give it to my wife. Hopefully she won't throw it at my head...

if she does, at least you'll know not to feel bad about it
