In this audiobook, Seth Adam Smith expands on the philosophy behind his extraordinary popular blog post "Marriage Isn't for You" - which received over 30 million hits and has been translated into over twenty languages - and shares how living for others can enrich every aspect of your life, just as it has his.
With a mix of humor, candor, and compassion, he reveals how, years before his marriage, his self-obsession led to a downward spiral of addiction and depression, culminating in a suicide attempt at the age of twenty.
Reflecting on the love and support he experienced in the aftermath, as well as on the lessons he learned from a difficult missionary stint in Russia, his time as a youth leader in the Arizona desert, his marriage, and even a story his father read to him as a child, he shares his deep conviction that the only way you can find your life is to give it away to others.
