who-gives-a-fuck

Everyone was born with a limited amount of fucks to give.

 

During your teenage years you give a ton and slowly give less and less from there.

When I saw this thought I had to sit back and think.

Why?

caring and doing somethingBecause I could read it two ways.

 

First.

As you get older you just get worn down and just stop giving a fuck about a lot of things.

Or.

Second.

As you get older you learn that not everything deserves ‘giving a fuck’ and you give less … but give more of a fuck when you do.

 

I pondered this a little.

And then I got curious and found that if you type “give a fuck” in google search you will get about 4,610,000 results (0.38 seconds) but … here is the interesting thing  … you get page after page on ‘philosophy <or ‘the art’> of not giving a fuck.’

Basically the internet is strewn with articles and advice on how to not give a fuck.

How crazy is that?

It is almost like the google world is attempting to offer some extraordinary justification for being indifferent … to actually practice being indifferent … which is maybe a different slant on how to be a complete moron.

 

I mean … c’mon.

 

If we really only have a limited amount of fucks to give … well … wouldn’t you expect some really good advice on how to prioritize and parse them out? I say that because it seems like we could all use some good advice with regard to knowing when to give a fuck and when not to give a fuck.

I will say one thing about giving a fuck … caring about shit is the essence of Life.

 

Ok.

Maybe two things.i dont care stuck in

Caring AND actively engaging in shit is the essence of Life <I actually called it RSVP and Life once>.

But.

The moment you become indifferent … the moment you just don’t give a fuck … well … there is no Life. There is no heartbeat. Life is dead.

 

I am certainly not going to suggest you care about everything. I will not because I agree that we do not have an unlimited amount of fucks to give. But it just doesn’t make sense to not care.

 

Now.

Life does a fairly good job of suggesting not giving a fuck is a much easier way of living Life.

 

Life is full of a lot of shit we don’t understand.

Life is full of a lot of things that just do not seem to make sense.

Life is full of a lot of things that just doesn’t seem logical.

Life is full of a lot of things that seem different than what you want … or think about.

Life is full of a lot of questions … and a lot fewer answers than we want.

Life is full of a lot of answers that don’t really solve anything.

Life is full of a lot of things that make you scratch your head and say “I never understood why.”

 

I imagine after reading that list many people may think “then why give a fuck.”

Well.

Because none of those things make Life any … well … ‘less’ or any less meaningful. They just make it a little less certain. They just make things a little more risky. They just make it all a little less straightforward.

In fact … I could suggest that almost all Life throws at you could fall into the “WTF category”.

 

Anyway.

I agree with the opening quote … I don’t believe we have an unlimited amount of fucks to give. That doesn’t mean we only have one or two … just that they are not unlimited.

But that doesn’t mean you should embrace the thought “well, I have no more fucks to give … so … I just don’t give a fuck about anything anymore.”

Here is what I know about giving a fuck.

But if you give enough of a fuck about your life … and trust it to give a fuck about you on occasion … well … a fuck of a lot of good things can happen.
