i don’t give a flying f****

(Before you begin reading this I’m going to warn you that there will be a use of profane language. If you take offense to the use of these words, it may be best to look elsewhere for this information.)

 

I recently watched a video created by Charisma on Command (link can be found below). The man narrating this video explains how you don’t have to give a fuck and how to apply that mindset to your life. A lot of us wish we could be that person who carelessly goes through life not giving a fuck. Nothing can touch them and they seem to get everything they want in life. The narrator in this video gives the example of Tyler Durden from Fight Club. Tyler Durden was that typical person we all wish to be, just seamlessly going through life without a worry in the world. There’s just one problem, sometimes those people can come off as rude, arrogant, and mean… yet people still follow them. The key here is not to completely give no fucks but to give a fuck about a specific amount of things intensely that actually matter to you. Throughout life we are constantly told what we should care about; getting a nice job, a nice home, or having the right clothes. What if you stopped listening to everyone else and concentrated only on what you wanted? This can be a difficult task for some people because it seems like it’s selfish. The thing is, when you take care of yourself and your own needs, you end up attracting the people who will care about the same things you do and there will be no need for you to worry about others viewing you as selfish.

Of course, this is most definitely a thing that takes time and because of that, I’ve linked another video below by MuchelleB who gives a step by step process on how to declutter your fucks. It’s a process of making a list and seeing what it is that you actually do care about. When you find those few things, concentrate on them and only those things. That way, whenever something unpleasant in life gets in the way, you can always return to your important things in life and remember, whatever is happening that is making you upset isn’t that important. Soon enough you’ll be on your way to becoming a more compassionate version of Tyler Durden.

Life is so much more than those small instances when it gets you down. It’s time to let those go, embrace what is important, and stop giving a flying fuck.
