Author and blogger Mark Manson wants you to get to know your brain’s strengths and learn to cope with its weaknesses rather than being ashamed of its quirks. His short guide is a good one for people who’ve been told they’re somehow “too much” – too sensitive, too obsessive, too melancholy. Many of these traits are useful when creating and innovating. He points out that the definitions of what qualifies as a “mental illness” shift with each generation. Read his opinion with the caveat that if you’re suffering, it’s perfectly OK to seek the services of a competent mental health professional.
