My name is Natalie, and I''m done caring about what people care about me. Why? Because then I felt like I would be molded into being someone else's version of me.
I'm in the process of eliminating things in my life that makes me feel upset or uneasy. Why? Because I deserve to be happy. I'm at a stage in my life where I deserve peace, love, and happiness. I don't deserve to have people weigh me down in a way that's somewhat unhealthy. I wonder if the art of being happy is in fact having a big ego, and two middle fingers waved up high in the air.
So, how do you not care? It's plain and simple. Lemme introduce you to some tips on how to in fact master the art of not caring;
- Do things that make you happy. If you want to become a writer over a doctor, than do that. If you have people that impact you negatively, then perhaps it's time to say good riddance to them.
- Get rid of people in your life that don't treat you right. You deserve people that treat you fairly, and should have your best interest at heart and vice versa. If someone makes you feel like you don't matter, than they are stupid. If you feel like you're being forced to comply with someone who in essence brings you down, it's time to say goodbye.
- Laugh off all of the things that are negative about you. I'm a bitch? Okay cool. I just learned how not to take people's crap. I'm fat? No, I'm healthy. Call me when you're done trying to shove celery sticks down your throat? I'm opinionated? Yes, that's why I blog. If I didn't have an opinion than I would still be learning about why Freud did something.
- YOLO. Yes, it's making a comeback. You only live once, so live in this moment. Do things that you know the opportunity will never come again. Live life, and enjoy it.
In essence, life's really to care about what others say about you. So, 'nevermind what the haters say, ignore them til they fade away'.
