How To: Not Give a Fuck
Happy Belated New Years Everyone! We don't know if it's just us, but on every social media site for the last couple of days, we have everybody and THEY MAMA's posting about their new year's goals and resolutions. With 2014 behind us and this being the first post of 2015, what better way to start off the new year with an, "I don't give a fuck" post. More so... A "How To" guide on not giving a fuck (the positive way). This has always been natural to me and I've seen people struggle with being a little care free. Hopefully this will help you channel this attitude and mentality to better your year. This is all based on personal experience. No scientific data. No ill intentions. So don't blame Skreetstyle for any mishaps and relapse.
RULE 1. GIVE YOURSELF TIME AND SPACE
I've always struggled with this and I never realized the importance until recently. Give time for yourself. You need this time to think for yourself, listen to your thoughts and to let your imagination roam without restriction. We all have friends, we all have family and we all get caught up with "life" but sometimes we need to find that zen within ourselves in order to progress and transcend in our lives.
RULE 2. KNOW YOURSELF, BE COMFORTABLE WITH WHO YOU ARE
Can you have fun by yourself? Are you emotionally independent? Do you know who you are? A great way of getting to know yourself and understanding what your likes/dislikes are, is by assessing your thoughts and spending that time with yourself. Of course this takes time, patience and living life. Give yourself some credit and tell yourself "You are the shit", but be humble about it. Why would you want to be cocky to yourself, let alone others? Having self confidence is a difference and a definite must in not giving two fucks.
RULE 3. DISCOVER YOUR IMPORTANCE AND WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU
You are miniscule. You are an ant in this universe but that should not stop you from knowing your worth and what makes you important to this world. Find out what you want to do for this week, this year, this life time. Are the things you are doing today helping you to reach those goals? Everybody has a purpose, everybody has a destination. Find out what yours is.
RULE 4. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT AND DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET THERE
Give yourself short term and long term goals. Do whatever it takes to obtain that. I bet if you were hungry, you would do whatever it takes to get some food, right? Use that same drive, that hunger, to reach your goals. Don't get lost in the lifestyle of "today". Keep your eyes on that chicken wing (metaphorically speaking).
RULE 5. CARE LESS ABOUT OTHER'S OPINIONS BUT CARE MORE ABOUT OTHERS
This one is tricky. From my experience, the more we don't give a fuck about what people have to say, the more people think we don't care about them. Care about people and compliment people. Do something good in this world. The best thing you can give someone is your gratitude and your attention. Just don't listen to the negativity and the hate. When did it start being cool to not be a good person. Be a bad ass with a good heart.
RULE 6. DON'T BE AFRAID
What do you have to lose? Fear is honestly one of the biggest factors that will prohibit you from living life the way you want to live it. Don't let it get to you. You can't control everything. It's not that serious. If it is serious and it doesn't go the way you want it to, say fuck it and move forward! In whatever you're afraid of, understand your fear and face it head on. It's good to have support from others but especially from yourself.
RULE 7. BE CONSISTENT, KEEP YOURSELF IN CHECK
We are all adults here. No one is going to keep you in check but yourself. We are all aware of our actions, our habits and our thoughts. Don't ever doubt your own intellect. Don't make the excuse, "that's just how I am" I hate when people say that, because everyone has the ability to assess their thoughts, actions and emotions. Everyone has the ability to change those habits. Don't let yourself fool you. Only you can tell yourself to care or to not give a fuck. Push yourself, be yourself and don't give a fuck. You'll be happier, I swear.
Let's all not give a fuck this year.
