He *is* a nice guy and a *good* guy who writes books that help and entertain loads of people. I find the meanness towards him very depressing.

Yes. Too much mooching around looking troubled, not enough arresting of serial killer.

A finished copy of my book about happiness has arrived!! So beautiful, with bumpy key on cover! Out next week. It’s a mystery *and* a self-help book. It contains philosophers, life-coaches, mentions of Poirot, highly grudgeworthy people and more. I really loved writing it!

And yes I *am* always judging, of course. But I notice that, over and over, when my every instinct is screaming ‘That’s not okay!! Get away, quick!’, there’s a strong, judgey voice in my head that overrides and says, ‘If you’re being unfair, there’ll be hell to pay!’

....mental rigmarole first: ‘Could I be wrong in thinking it’s not okay to punch me in the face?’ etc. I find it v v hard to give myself permission to blame/judge anyone, ever.

Another interesting facet of thi S is that some of us (spoiler: me) are v v reluctant to form definite negative judgements of others. If someone punches me in the face, I *never* just go, ‘Okay, that’s it, you’re a puncher so get knotted’. I *always* do a whole...

Yes! I’m fascinated by that too. But (as I often tell the writers I coach) we can establish new habits in that area, eg a writer who at first is absolutely floored by a nasty review can end up not being upset by them at all.

Self help books really, massively help me - but they don’t turn me into a robot who never needs help! (Hence my own self-help book/memoir-in-grudge form, How To Hold A Grudge!)

IMO: self help books should stress far more than they do that *first and involuntarily*, we *will* be upset by others, but *then* we can realise that eg if they’d been capable of behaving any better, they would have done, and we can feel great as long as *we* behaved well etc.
