Life… You stress over trivialities, you care too much about situations and people who aren’t even worthy of your attention, you give away your energy like it’s free candy, you sacrifice your soul, you compromise your health, you mess around with your emotions.
And then, one day you wake up and realize that life is short. Too damn short if you consider how recklessly we choose to spend it.
You suddenly realize that maybe half of the things you used to give a damn about are totally worthless. Things you either can’t control or insignificant, trivial things that don’t even deserve your attention, let alone your suffering.
Because you’re a strong human being, a mature and grown woman who’d never allow to be victimized by life’s obstacles.
Here are 8 things, tough and independent women stopped giving a f*ck about a long time ago:
1.THEY DON’T CARE WHAT OTHERS THINK OF THEM
When you worry about what people said or thought about you, you’re practically allowing them to enter your world and letting them control your life.
You are living to please them, instead of pleasing and satisfying yourself.
Strong and mature women know that people, no matter how kind, will always find something to disapprove of.
2. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT HAVING THE PERFECT BODY
One of the most important things grown women don’t give a f*ck about is having the perfect body. When I say perfect, I mean unnaturally perfect, ‘Instagram’ perfect, ‘Photoshop’ perfect kind of body.
Let’s be real. First of all, we’re all born with special and individual flaws that make us uniquely beautiful human beings. And second of all, beauty has nothing to do with physical appearance.
3. THEY DON’T GIVE A F*CK ABOUT BEING RIGHT ALL OF THE DAMN TIME
Because, no matter how smart we think we are, we can’t possibly be right all of the time.
Grown women know this. Mostly because they chose to maintain an open mind and an open heart. They don’t care about being the centre of attention. They don’t need a pat on the back to understand their worth.
4. THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT ENDING TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS
Yes, it hurts, but when a strong and grown-ass woman is through with you, believe me, she’s done forever.
She won’t hesitate to open her heart to you and undress her soul, but if she notices that you don’t care about reciprocating, she won’t think twice before she leaves you.
5. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT BEING POLITE IN BED
It’s sad how so many women are taught to always please the man and remain submissive. Because you know, he’s the man. He needs to dominate, otherwise, his ego will get hurt and he’ll get mad.
Strong women know that this kind of opinion is stupid and demeaning. They don’t care about being “polite” in bed, because sex is an activity that needs to equally include both partners.
6.THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT SMALL TALK
A mature and grown woman doesn’t engage in a small talk. These vigorous and powerful ladies have more important things to care about, instead of gossiping around.
What others do, think, believe in, fight with, is none of their business.
7. THEY DON’T CARE IF THEIR BOLDNESS OFFENDS PEOPLE
More importantly, mature and strong women are not afraid of expressing their genuine thoughts, even if their opinions come off as harsh and merciless.
When it comes to telling the truth, they will stop at nothing!
8. THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN WHETHER SOCIETY ACCEPTS THEM
Grown and mature women don’t try to fit in. They don’t care whether society accepts them. They perceive the world in colours, exist out of the box and live life by their own rules.
Normal? Normal is boring and stupid. Why would they choose to bathe in the ocean of conventionalism, when they can take a dip in those wild, cold, refreshing springs of peculiarity?
