I’ve been wondering, is there anyone who lives by that? I thought I did, but lately I’ve been thinking that I’m about halfway to that statement.
It’s not that somewhere deep down, It really bothers me when someone says something negative about me; I really don’t give a shit about that. However, when someone compliments me, I have a genuine reaction to that. It really makes me just a bit happier when someone says that they like my shirt. But if I tell myself, “Don’t care about what others think about you,” shouldn’t that apply to both the negative and the positive? I mean, if I don’t care about the negative, but I do care about the positive, I don’t meet that statement— I’m only halfway there. It would be more accurate to say, “Only care about what others think about you if it better serves you,” but that seems manipulative…
Am I wrong on this? Is it okay to select and choose what I care about? I can’t seem to reconcile that idea in my brain. I suppose it could be argued that I should do whatever it takes to make me happy, but is it morally acceptable to cherry pick what thoughts I care about?
There’s a lot of people I’d like to fuck but my heart goes out to Beyonce <3
Gritting my teeth and girding my loins for the AP English Language test coming up!
Basílica i Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família
Located in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in November 2010 was consecrated and proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI. It is incorrect to refer to it as a cathedral.
