self help books? Anonymous 28104
any good recommendations?
i've always thought they were bs, but lately i've thought about giving one a try.
do you have any experiences after reading one?
did they help you or improve your life at all?
12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos - Jordan B. Peterson
I read 2 out of curiosity, one was a really short one and all it said was that if you repeat the phrase "i love myself" your life is going to get better, not particularly helpful, in fact pretty useless. The other was 7 habits, that one was better, still not super helpful, but at least it was an interesting read and you can see why it's so popular, I might re-read it. Though I would rather suggest you read books that teach you useful things and improve your life in ways that aren't just psychological "self help", for example learning a new language.
Or just read the Quran.

The Art of Tidying Up (there is also a manga version which is very cute) really changed my outlook about cleaning, my room doesn't look like a PPP pic anymore
Story of a Soul was also very influential to me
The King James Bible. John and Romans are good starter books.
