Mark Manson is obviously working on a new book. I’m guessing this is going to be the title. When you are in the mood for a good, long read take some time and read what Manson puts forth.
Adulthood is the realization that sometimes an abstract principle is right and good for its own sake. The same way that the adolescent realizes there’s more to the world than the child’s pleasure or pain, the adult realizes that there’s more to the world than the adolescent’s constant bargaining for validation, approval, and satisfaction. The adult does what is right for the simple reason that it is right. End of discussion.
I personally need to revisit it a couple of times a year.
