One of the best pieces of life advice I have read recently has been from this article. Especially #11.
“Don’t give fucks like fucks are going out of style.”
“Giving a fuck” is basically your life’s currency. If you give a fuck about everything and everyone, you’ll quickly run out of fucks, or even worse, go into fuck debt.”
Sometimes, when I am overthinking someone’s reaction or things they said, I remind myself of this.If giving a fuck were like giving money, would I really be willing to spend my money on what they thought? It is quite helpful in reframing my perspective when I am in the worrying/overanaylsing mode.
Readers, does this make sense or seem helpful to you?
