“I am an independent woman. I pay my bills, I don’t need a man. I don’t care what anyone thinks about me”- a 19-year-old.
“Shut the fuck up!” – me
See ehn, when you see people who read ‘The Subtle art of not giving a fuck’ upside down, you just know.
What the hell does a 19-year-old know about not needing anyone?
How sad are you to be so indifferent?
As humans, we only have a limited number of fucks to give daily.
Now, if you decide to waste it on irrelevant things, that’s your choice.
But fucks, you must give.
You have got to be terrified about something/someone
You’ve got to have someone who keeps you on your toes
You’ve got to need someone
You’ve got to be scared sometimes, only then would you know you still have something to lose
I only got 3 fucks to give every day in this life
Some people give way too many…
“Will my pictures be liked on Instagram?”
“Will people see me as a nice person (Ezigbo mmadu)?”
Yada yada yuda yuda…….
Get the fuck out of here!
“Essentially, we become more selective about the fucks we’re willing to give. This is something called ‘maturity.’ It’s nice, you should try it sometime. Maturity is what happens when one learns to only give a fuck about what’s truly fuckworthy.” – Mark Manson.
Maturity is said to come with age.
I hope the bitter teenager learns how to give a few fucks as they grow.
And to you who gives way too many? I hope you worry less and LIVE more.
