So far in my life, I have given a fuck about lots of people and things. I’ve also not given a fuck about lots of people and things. Can you guess which one has made more of a difference in my life? It doesn’t mean I’m rude, insensitive or have a lack of empathy, it means I’ve learnt to accept that I can’t control everything in my life. As soon as I realised this, my life changed for the better.
Tips on how not to give a fuck!
1. You may wish your life was perfect but it’s important to understand and accept that things don’t always go to plan. Shit happens! You will be unfairly treated or people will let you down, but that’s part of life. Once you stop going through life expecting things to always go your way, you will become more satisfied and grateful for what you do have, instead of what you don’t have.
2. It’s impossible to live up to everyone’s expectations or please everyone. People will always judge you, no matter what you do, but you can stop it from affecting you. Stand up for what you believe in, whether it’s your thoughts, your opinions or your actions. Once you start to do this you will start to not give a fuck about what others think.
3. Remember, nobody is perfect and there will always be somebody who is better at stuff than you are. Not everybody can be extraordinary. That’s what makes life so interesting. You need to work out what your limitations are, what you can control in your life, what you can’t, and accept it. Once you do this you will know you just can’t change some things and you will start to not give a fuck about those things. This is when your life starts to change for the better.
4. Choose what you want to give a fuck about. Most of us struggle thorough our lives giving too many fucks in situations where it doesn’t even deserve it. If someone is rude to you. If somebody doesn’t take the time to listen to you. When people don’t bother to care about how they make you feel. Choose wisely and develop the ability to control and manage how much you give a fuck about something. Don’t let life’s rubbish trivialities or dramas suck you in. Learn what to care about and sod the rest!
Don’t tiptoe through life doing things in order to please everyone around you, if you don’t believe in what you’re doing. Living a life that follows the ideal notions of what other people think is a terrible way to live. It makes you the spectator whilst others take action.
When your happiness is no longer dependent on other people, you can be happy anytime you want to.
Choose how to live your life and not give a fuck about what others think!
Take the leap of faith. Make the Change. Not tomorrow. Not next week, but NOW.
