I live and love the acronym DNGAF, which stands for:
Contrary to some opinions, this does not mean to not care about anything…but it specifically means to stop caring about what doesn’t matter.
And this especially applies to the opinions of others and the how those opinions impact and affect you and how you live your life.
Being a people-pleaser means you always need to keep up that mask, without changing, growing, or evolving.
So, can you care DEEPLY about things like presence, joy, and alignment…while not giving a fuck about trivial, insignificant bullshit?
Perhaps it’s worth a shot to give it a try?
You’re getting older,
But are you getting bolder?
Are you caring less about things that don’t matter,
Or deeper entrenched in the facade and the flatter?
