The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck

By Mark Manson

In my life, I have given a fuck about many people and many things. I have also not given a fuck about many people and many things. And those fucks I have not given have made all the difference.

People often say the key to confidence and success in life is to simply “not give a fuck.” Indeed, we often refer to the strongest, most admirable people we know in terms of their lack of fucks given. Like “Oh, look at Susie working weekends again, she doesn’t give a fuck.” Or “Did you hear that Tom called the company president an asshole and still got a raise anyway? Holy shit, that dude does not give a fuck.” Or “Jason got up and ended his date with Cindy after 20 minutes. He said he wasn’t going to listen to her bullshit anymore. Man, that guy does not give a fuck.”

Chances are you know somebody in your life who, at one time or another, did not give a fuck and went on to accomplish amazing feats. Perhaps there was a time in your life where you simply did not give a fuck and excelled to some extraordinary heights. I know for myself, quitting my day job in finance after only six weeks and telling my boss that I was going to start selling dating advice online ranks pretty high up there in my own “didn’t give a fuck” hall of fame. Same with deciding to sell most of my possessions and move to South America. Fucks given? None. Just went and did it...

That was good read. Thanks.

A lot of people tend to take minor situations or inconveniences way too seriously.

I think that's an indication that they take themselves too seriously.

A good measure of the importance of a situation is to ask yourself if it will really matter to you in five years.

Will you even remember it? Most of the time I've found the answer to be no.

In the circumstances when the answer is yes; it's time to give a f**k.

I never gave a f*&k about much anyway,  never was subtle, always spoke my mind and I still do.  Keeps most people away from me and thats just fine. 

Most folks are fake ass bullshit and I cant stand that,  or high drama retards.  F*&k them,  f*&k it and f*&k that! 

How ya like me know?  :D

Down where I come from,  We say Grace, and we say mam,  if ya aint into that we dont give a damn. xD
