Aren’t you tired of being judged, criticized, compared or even worst, look down on? Well, I know I am. How about you? Do you always give too many fucks about many people and many things? I think it’s high time for us to not give a fuck, don’t you think? If the fuckery of this world is messing your head and the way you live your life then stick with me – I’ll be teaching you the Art of Not Giving a Fuck.
Chapter 1: Understanding the Origin of Fuckery
The origin of giving a fuck starts early. Ever watch a kid who cries his heart out because he didn’t like the gift he received on his birthday? Exactly, fuck that kid. We’re born giving way too many fucks and it’s the norm. We give a fuck about that coworker who didn’t notice our new shoes or about that soap opera that was canceled on TV. We give a fuck about our neighbors garden being too brown and dirty. We give a fuck even to that dog who’s running around like a crazy animal. Fucks were given everywhere.
For what purpose, I don’t know. Here’s what I do know – we humans are raised to be social creatures. Our connections to others are important not only for our survival but also to our happiness and the success of our careers. But in order to be connected – we have this fucking thing called “Pleasing others, so I can be accepted in their community”.
We live our lives by doing things in order to please others, not because it’s what we believe in. Eventually, our actions, appearances, and lifestyle become moulded by how we think other people perceive us. It’s terrible and it has to fucking stop.
Chapter 2: Stop (
Kissing Everyone’s Ass) Pleasing Everyone
Don’t waste your time pleasing everyone, it will be a futile effort. No matter how good you think you are, there’s still gonna be some asshole who’s gonna criticise and judge you. And you can’t stop that. The world is an ocean of fuck and a lot of people have drowned in it. So stand your ground, be confident and create your own little island. You don’t have to be alone in it. There are good people in your lives that you should really give a fuck about. Stick with them. You know who they are.
Chapter 3: Don’t hand out fucks like candy
Whenever you feel the need to give a fuck, stop and think. Ask yourself, “Is this fuckworthy?”. If not then you better fucking move on. And if ever you found yourself giving a fuck to something like that lady who refuses to go out with you – ask yourself, “Don’t I have anything more fuckworthy to dedicate my life with?”. Don’t just go handing out fucks like candy. Braaaaahhhh, stop giving fucks on trivial shit that bothers you. Give your fucks for only the most fuck worthy of situations.
There’s no such thing as not giving a fuck, the question is where do you choose to allot it?
Chapter 4: Give Fucks to Those Who Matters
A lot of people pay little attention to you. We are not that special as we think. I’m not saying this to put you down, but this is the fact. We need to accept it. When we realize that life isn’t about the superficial things and life is just what it is – we no longer feel the need to give a fuck to everything. We can now then truly reserve our fucks to those who truly matters. Our family, our friends and our loved ones.
Final Chapter: Don’t Give a Fuck and Change the World
If you have successfully understood the four chapters of this art, then and only then you’re ready to change the world. You can now dismissed the unimportant and not fuckworthy and focus on things that really matters. Don’t give a fuck and you will feel liberated, unbounded by judgments or critics. But remember to surround yourself with people you give a fuck and love those who still gives a fuck about you.
Ps. I’m sorry about the cursing. But that’s ok, I’m pretty sure you don’t give a fuck. 🙂
