Wear this to cover your hips. Don’t wear that top, it’s too transparent. Stop wasting your time on dreams that will never ever come true. Find a real job. Don’t date many guys, you are making a bad image for yourself. Work out. Don’t eat junk food. Lose weight. Get married and have kids.
DO what is expected of you.
I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of this madness. For a very long time, society has been telling us what’s right and what is wrong. And for a very long time, we’ve followed that road. As a result, we’ve forgotten what it feels to be happy.
Well, enough of that.
This life is short. And I am not planning to waste it on worrying about things that are simply not worth it. Here are 10 things every mature woman should stop giving a damn about:
1. WHO YOU SLEEP WITH
This is your business and no one else’s. Anyone who tries to state their opinion about who you sleep with or shame you about the number of your partners is just being disrespectful and rude. You don’t owe them an explanation. Your life, your choices.
2. THE WAY YOU LIKE TO DRESS
Your personal style has nothing to do with other people. Live your life and wear those crop tops, mom jeans, long/short skirts like there’s no tomorrow. Mix colors, mix patterns but most importantly be comfortable with who you are. What others think it’s completely irrelevant.
3. WHAT YOU DO FOR A LIVING
Don’t ever let anyone convince you that you are not doing enough. Don’t let anyone make you feel bad about what you do for a living. How you earn your money is completely up to you. If you love what you do, do it without giving a damn what people’s opinion is.
4. WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU
As I already said, don’t bother wasting your energy on deciphering what someone said, what they actually meant with that. Just remember, they don’t even think about you. They only think about themselves. If you let their judgment affect you, you will never find happiness.
5.WHAT YOUR EX PARTNERS ARE DOING
Your exes are in the past for a reason. Let them stay there. Focus on your present moments and make the best of them. Life is exactly what you make it.
6. WHAT PEOPLE USUALLY POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA
Yes, yes, we are all happy, rich, fulfilled on social media. We are all enjoying life without having a single care on our minds. But that is not reality. So, stop worrying about how bad your life is compared to all those Instagram influencers. They are paid to make you feel miserable and then force you to buy whatever they’re promoting.
7. YOUR PAST MISTAKES
Holding on to the past is the worst thing you can possibly do. It’s a self-sabotaging mission. You cannot move on and find your happiness if you live in the past. Just let go.
8. YOUR FUTURE
Make sure you do your best today, but never try to predict the future. That is a just slippery slope, my friend. If you focus all of your energy on worrying about what might happen tomorrow, you won’t have enough strength to seize the opportunities today.
9. EVERYONE TELLING YOU WHAT TO DO
You are the only creator of your life. You are the person in charge. The one who makes the decisions. The one who fights its own battle. So, don’t let anyone tell you what’s right and what’s wrong. You are the only person who has the right to do that.
10. THINGS THAT ARE BEYOND YOUR CONTROL
Worrying about things that are out of your control is pointless. You’ll only be wasting your energy for nothing. Instead of doing that, you can simply accept these changes and let them shape you as a person.
