Sometimes everything sucks. This unique, illustrated guide will help you move past negative thoughts and feelings and discover what truly matters to you.

If you struggle with negative thoughts and emotions, you should know that your pain is real. No one should try to diminish it. Sometimes stuff really does suck and we have to acknowledge it. Worry, sadness, loneliness, anger, and shame are big and important, but they can also get in the way of what really matters. What if, instead of fighting your pain, you realized what really matters to you—and put those things first in life? If you did that, maybe your pain wouldn’t feel so big anymore. Isn’t it worth a try?

Stuff That Sucks offers a compassionate and validating guide to accepting emotions, rather than struggling against them. With this book as your guide, you’ll learn to prioritize your thoughts, feelings, and values. You’ll figure out what you care about the most, and then start caring some more! The skills you’ll learn are based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Yes, there are a few written exercises, but this isn’t a workbook. It’s a journey into the stuff that sucks, what makes that sucky stuff suck even more, and how just a few moments each day with the stuff that matters will ultimately transform the stuff that sucks into stuff that is just stuff. Make sense?

Maybe you want to be more creative? Or maybe you simply want to do better in school or be a better friend? This book will show you how to focus on what you really care about, so that all that other sucky stuff doesn’t seem so, well, sucky anymore.

One of the few books I’ve seen my son reading I have bought a lot, and I mean a lot, of self-help type books for my 12yr old son over the last year. He has been having a lot of emotional and behavioral problems. I have seen this book laying open in his room for few days now. I’m giving it a four star review because I’m not sure if it is actually helping, but he’s been reading it and he rarely reads any of the books I get from him. The book has caught his interest enough for him to be looking through it and that itself means a ton to…

Not what we were looking for This book might acknowledge things that suck in life but there are no tips on how to deal with with these things. So I don’t think it can be called a “guide”.My teen daughter found this book depressing and unhelpful.Fortunately I had also bought a few workbooks for teens and those books DID explain, give tips and helpful mental processes to work on negative thinking, self doubt and building confidence.

Great book for kids struggling with typical adolescent/teen issues I bought this for my 11 year old daughter who has been struggling with depression ever since she started middle school. I’m so happy to find a book that is easy to read and kept her attention. I found most other books were too boring but not this one.
