It's time to give yourself a break!
You've been bossing yourself around for too long. Where has it gotten you? Maybe it's time you follow the example of the French and let it go. Allow yourself to be angry, be tired, be silly, be passionate - to give yourself a break, and just simply be.
Fabrice Midal offers us a new solution to the perennial problem of our too-much, too-fast modern life. It's OK, he urges us, to say no. It's fine to quit the things that don't fulfill you. It's necessary, in fact, to give yourself a break and say, simply, c'est la vie.
