We’re so happy to welcome back bestselling author Mark Manson to give more life advice that doesn’t suck. We’re discussing the truth about happiness – that there is no “formula” for it, why “getting rid” of your problems isn’t the answer, and recognizing delusional positivity. In terms of relationships, we talk about how you and your partner’s strengths and weaknesses counterbalance each other, how conflict strengthens a healthy relationship, and what you can be doing right now to improve your dating life. Mark also turns the tables on us and asks how the podcast has changed our dating life, and he shares his own wild cheating story, which leads us to our final discussion about post traumatic growth (how a lot of people end up thriving after a traumatic incident). Before Mark joins us, we talk about more changes in Rayna’s life (hint: porn and pedicures), Ashley’s DMV journey, and how we got in trouble in high school. We also spill some tea on someone Rayna ran into and who texted Ashley. Enjoy! Follow Mark on Instagram @markmanson, get his books The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope, and check out his website for more.
