Book Review: 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Interesting. Although the explanations seem a bit long at times, I believe it points out the main points that a person shouldn’t be doing.
Obviously no one is perfect, and after reading the book you will realize that you probably do more than a couple of points that have been explained, however, it never is bad to point out what exactly is the wrong or right in your thought process.

It is interesting how the author Amy Morin explained all the points with considerable amount of examples, particularly taking instances and problems from her own life as well as her patients, marking the issues as well as the solutions in the case.

Most of the points mentioned are ones that I am sure readers have had the opportunity to have heard from someone, perhaps an elder. However, until and unless given an example along with it, it doesn’t feel ‘worthy’ enough to be implemented/corrected in your own life. I believe that is the strength of this book in particular.

Seven Sins

Let’s write about it today,
The sins that no one would want;
And yet, it is there in us,
Unintentionally, we do make a bond.

First comes the pride,
A little bit is fine;
But too much can cause,
To kill any relation’s shine.

The next comes the envy,
Which causes you to hate;
And you are never satisfied,
Because you want what others have.

Third is gluttony,
Which makes you slow;
Just eating all the time,
Will never let you glow.

Lust is another one,
Which comes with creepiness;
Drowning so beneath,
That you lose your manliness.

The next one comes any time,
Depending on your character;
Whether you are at office or party,
Anger can be the worst director.

Now you want money,
However much isn’t enough;
Greed has encased your heart,
It doesn’t let you donate, or love.

As the name suggests,
Sloth will come at the last;
Even if it’s a feet or two,
Like a koala you are fast.

So these are the seven sins,
That each of us have;
Depending whether little or more,
Defines how we behave.
