The part you quoted is big for Mark Manson, as well: 9 Subtle Lies We All Tell Ourselves, for example.

There's also David Cain of Raptitude: You Aren’t In the Crowd, You Are the Crowd.

I am a fan of Mark Manson. It was here on hubski that I discovered "Life is a Video Game--Here Are the Cheat Codes."

Hearing you say you're a fan of his makes my interest for his writing feel less awkward inside.

I liked what he wrote in the video game/cheat codes article about how often we respond to problems with distractions rather than solutions.

    Solutions move us towards the next Level. Distractions keep us on the same Level.
This helped me understand people around me who didn't seem to be addressing the real problem of -- let's just call it, their broken self ... Manson addresses these things.
