Your Life Isn't for You: A Selfish Person's Guide to Being Selfless

Your Life Isn't for You: A Selfish Person's Guide to Being Selfless

by Seth Adam Smith

Based on his very popular blog post Marriage Isn't for You, this book is about the highs and lows of being a human, and the personal life philosophy of the writer, Seth Adam Smith, that he has found extremely beneficial to his day-to-day life as a father and husband. His belief is that his life is meant to be a gift to others, and not to serve himself. Following his path to this conclusion, Smith reflects on how his self-interest hurt his relationships and led to addictions and mental health problems, as well as his travels, his family, and his attempted suicide. While he may cover some heavy subjects, Smith brings his positive outlook on life to the pages and infuses his story with humour and wisdom that serve as further evidence that his life philosophy truly has changed the way he lives.
