7 Things I Don't Care About Anymore

Pleasing others
It’s not like I am aiming to displease other people, but I try to make myself happy FIRST. I find that if I do that, other people are generally happy with me as well. You only have one life to live and you might as well do it your own way. Best of all? It’s never too late to start doing it.

I just don’t care. I have better things to talk about other than the misfortune of others and things that turn out to be mostly untrue. If you are talking about someone and saying something you wouldn’t say to their face, you should just keep it to yourself. It’s just that simple.

Counting calories
I used to diet a lot in high school. I counted calories in my early twenties. Now? For the love of god, I don’t care about calories. I indulge a little and just try to live a healthy lifestyle overall. At no point do I want to feel like I have to keep track of everything of eat--torture I tell you, torture!

That TV is bad for me
If it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. I have friends who don’t watch TV and they are awesome, but I don’t have the foggiest idea about how they do it. I love TV. I am a junkie and watch a ton of it. I don’t care about the fact that some people say you shouldn’t. It’s cheap entertainment and I’m a slave to it.

I try to care, really I do, and I used to be so [politically] charged. I guess I might have burned myself out or something. I just can’t be bothered to go too in depth anymore. Sure, I am aware that we’re a divided country--heck, I’ve got my own opinions about it all--but I just can’t care enough to engage in a passionate conversation about it. (That, and I enjoy liking people more than knowing their politics.)

Trying to be perfect 
There are a great lot of people out there trying to be perfect while pretending they aren’t trying to be perfect. I know because I used to be one of them. I’m over it. When you come over I might not have vacuumed, and there may be dishes in my sink because I’m busy just like everyone else. I’m over it, and you should be too. Oh and I get pimples still, and I’m not going to try to hide them so get over that, too.

I’m not a vegetarian, or a vegan or even anywhere close 
Do I wish I didn’t eat meat? Only once every nine years for like two seconds. I’ve done my duty--I was a vegetarian for over five years. Meat is great and I’m sorry but I’m over trying to feign feeling bad about it. I love animals just as much as the next and I believe we should treat them ethically and with love and care...before we eat them.

So what don't you care about anymore? There's gotta be something! Share it with me in the comments section below!


  1. Making negative comments about people (esp girls) I don't know. We shouldn't be hating on each other, especially when for all we know the person could be totally super awesome. And if not, I don't have to interact with them anyway! :D

  2. AMEN to all of them lol. I personally dont care how others see me...those who know me love me. I will walk into the grocery store with my hair on the top of my head and a sprinkle of eyeshadow and be ok. Trying to just live life is hard enough. Trying to live it in society's vision is overrated.

    1. SO TRUE! I love that "Trying to live in society's vision is overrated." Bravo!

  3. hating on each other - a good one! yes to all of the above.

  4. You say it girl!!! I'm with you 100%!!! How did you manage to overcome the "being perfect all-the-time" state of mind??? I need some advice on the letting go technique because it drives me crazy!!!

    1. Hi Maria! Well, I wish I could take full credit for that one, but I totally can't! I am a HUGE fan of Brene Brown and her book "Gifts of Imperfection" helped me realize that trying to be perfect doesn't fix a darn thing and sets us up for failure! I highly recommend all her books, starting with, "I thought it was just me (but it isn't)"
