***Warning***Foul Language Ahead***Warning***
Ahahaha This is mostly for my own amusement, and for my parents so they don’t have to read my sassy mouth if they don’t want to. 😉
As I was scrolling through FB today I saw this great article that I had to share with everyone. The article is all about not caring anymore. It’s about giving up some stress in your life to try and make the world, and your life, much better and happier. It’s great because I struggle with a lot of these issues and need reminders to stop caring so much.
- Giving a fuck about what others think
This has been such a hard thing for me. I’ve come a long way since moving to California and having the support of my husband. Now all I really care about is his opinion but there are times when those insecurities creep up and bug me. It’s a work in progress.
- Giving a fuck about being right all the time
This one is hard for me. Hard enough that I have passed this trait on to my oldest son. I have been doing a pretty damn good job of giving in more and accepting fault, but it’s taken a long time and a lot of arguments. 😦
- Giving a fuck about having a perfect body
This has not gone away. Not even close. I mean obviously.
- Giving a fuck about the 3-inch heels
I’m on the fence about this one. I love wearing my heels when I get the chance, even if they aren’t the most comfortable shoes in the world. But I like the feelings they give me. When I wear heels I feel more confident and I like being eye level with my husband, or at least closer to eye level. 🙂
- Giving a fuck about past mistakes
YES!!!! Quit living in the past! Move on! The future is so much brighter!
- Giving a fuck about gossip
Not having a lot of friends has helped with the gossip issue. I may not have a lot of friends but the ones I have truly care about me.
- Giving a fuck about others’ approval or validation
This goes along with caring what others think. Believe in yourself damn it!!
- Giving a fuck about letting go the toxic
This one is huge. Why should you keep toxic people in your life? Leave them in the past and forget about them! If they are no good for you, fuck ’em.
- Giving a fuck about failure
I have not mastered this one at all. I care, a lot about failing. I worry about getting good grades in school. I worry about being a good mother. I worry about being a good wife. I worry about being a good friend. I worry about failing the people I love. I need to work on this one.
- Giving a fuck about having plans on a Friday night
This one disappears when you have children, or at least it did for me. It’s exciting when you get to have Friday nights out but having a night in with great food and a bottle of wine is just as exciting. 🙂
- Giving a fuck about getting tons of likes on Facebook or Instagram
Yeah, I hate this one. I briefly talked about this in a post about millennials. Our culture thrives on social media attention and it’s sad. Since watching that talk (in the previous post) I have been making a conscious effort to be on my phone less and care less about the responses I get. Before I would check how many likes I had gotten and who had liked it. I honestly don’t remember the last time I did this. I have moved on from giving a shit about who likes my pictures or posts.
- Giving a fuck about what you don’t have
I think every single person deals with this at some point in their life.
- Giving a fuck about revenge
I don’t believe in karma, which makes revenge a hard thing for me to let go of. I don’t believe in fate or what comes around goes around. I have gotten better as letting go of things as I have gotten better with moving on from the past, though.
- Giving a fuck about “What Ifs”
You will go insane thinking about all the “what ifs” that may or may not happen. Try and live in the moment. this one, just like a bunch of the others, it is easier said than done.
- Giving a fuck about material possessions
Try and be happy with what you have. Enjoy your family and friends. Think about money and your possessions less.
- Giving a fuck about regrets
It’s only human to have regrets, but no one is perfect. No one has the perfect past and has always made the right decision.
- Giving a fuck about being good enough
What does this even mean? Who is good enough? What does it mean to be good enough? Who decides what is good enough? FUCK IT AND FUCK THEM!
