Not giving a fuck: The basics
Not giving a fuck means taking care of yourself first—like affixing your own oxygen mask before helping others.
Not giving a fuck means allowing yourself to say no. I don’t want to. I don’t have time. I can’t afford it.
Not giving a fuck—crucially—means releasing yourself from the worry, anxiety, fear, and guilt associated with saying no, allowing you to stop spending time you don’t have with people you don’t like doing things you don’t want to do.
Not giving a fuck means reducing mental clutter and eliminating annoying people and things from your life, freeing up space to truly enjoy all of the things you do give a fuck about.
This might sound selfish, and it is. But it also creates a better world for everyone around you.
You’ll stop worrying about all the things you have to do and start focusing on the things you want to do. You’ll be happier and more genial at work; your colleagues and clients will benefit. You’ll be better rested and more fun around friends. You might spend more time with your family—or you might spend less, making those moments you do share all the more precious.
And you’ll have more time, energy, and/or money to devote to living your best life. The people who embrace the life-changing magic of not giving a fuck are WINNING.
You want to be one of these people, don’t you?
