As we grow older in this world, we are supposed to learn lessons in life. The more we learn, the more we are able to mature as people.
Some people start out a lot more mature than others but we can all become as mature as the rest with a little work. We all experience different things in life and everything we do has a consequence.
Sometimes the consequences we face are hard to deal with and can be quite painful but in the end, going through these things helps us to become a better version of ourselves.
Once you begin to mature, you stop giving a lot of the fucks you once gave. Some of those will be harder to let go of than others, but if we stop giving them things will go over a lot more easily.
Below you will find a list of these ‘fucks’ we should not give. If you are someone who is hung up on any of these things you should work on letting go of them. Moving on will benefit you greatly.
19 F*cks You Should Stop Giving as You Mature as A Person:
1. Stop giving a fuck about being right all the time.
When we mature as people we begin to stop caring about whether or not we are right. We find that learning is never over. Even when we think we are right, sometimes we are wrong, so remember that we are all wrong at times. That is just a part of life.
2. Stop giving a fuck about whether or not you are ‘good enough.’
When we mature as people, we realize that being ‘good enough’ is not possible in all situations. We are good enough if we believe we are. If someone else doesn’t think we are good enough, that is their problem, not ours.
3. Stop giving a fuck about the things you regret.
When we mature as people, we learn that the things we regret should not hold power over our lives. Sure, we should learn from our mistakes, but we shouldn’t dwell on them for the rest of our lives. Moving on from the things we regret is important.
4. Stop giving a fuck about the past.
When we mature as people we also realize that getting over any issues from our past is crucial. We can’t move forward without moving on. The past is in the past and we should keep it there.
5. Stop giving a fuck about material possessions.
When we mature as people we do still want material things but we don’t give a fuck about having the newest smartphones or the most expensive things in life. We realize that material possessions are not what our lives should revolve around.
6. Stop giving a fuck about whether people like you or not.
When we mature as people we realize that whether other people like us or not does not matter. We live our lives and do the things we enjoy. The only thing that matters is how we think about ourselves and whether we like ourselves. If you are content with who you are fuck everyone else.
7. Stop giving a fuck about being popular on social media.
When we mature as people we stop worrying about whether or not people like the things we post online or having lots of friends on Facebook. Social media is actually pretty toxic and the sooner we realize that the better.
8. Stop giving a fuck about the people who want to bring you down.
When we mature as people we stop giving power to those people who are constantly working to bring us down. These are the people who are always criticizing us and making us feel like shit. If you refuse to let them make you feel like shit things will be a lot easier.
9. Stop giving a fuck about ‘what ifs.’
When we mature as people we realize that all of those ‘what ifs’ are just getting in the way. We realize that in life we should just do what makes us happy. There will always be ‘what ifs,’ so don’t waste your time refusing to take risks.
10. Stop giving a fuck about getting even.
When we mature as people we don’t waste our time trying to get revenge on others. We understand eventually that getting even is not as important as it used to seem to be. Sure, getting even may feel good when it happens but in the end, it doesn’t really do much for anyone and chances are the person you are getting even with isn’t even learning a lesson.
11. Stop giving a fuck about the things you want but don’t have.
When we mature as people we stop obsessing over the things we want. We really begin to see that the things we have now are enough. Don’t get me wrong, if we truly want something we will go out and get it but if it isn’t that important we don’t spend too much time thinking about it.
12. Stop giving a fuck about failing.
When we mature as people we stop worrying about whether or not we are going to fail. We all fail at one point or another. When it comes to growing as a person, failing is going to make a huge difference.
13. Stop giving a fuck about gossip.
When we mature as people we don’t waste our time listening to gossip. Gossip is all about drama and it is more than a waste of time. Whether it has something to do with us or not we don’t waste our time giving it power.
14. Stop giving a fuck about what other people think.
When we mature as people we don’t waste our time thinking about what people think about us. The only thing that matters is what we think about ourselves. We are not defined by what other people think.
15. Stop giving a fuck about looking perfect.
When we mature as people we stop worrying about whether or not we look perfect. We get over the idea of having a perfect body or being pretty. Sure, looks matter but becoming more mature involves understanding that there is a whole lot more to it than that.
16. Stop giving a fuck about biting your tongue.
When we mature as people we stop biting our tongues. We say what we mean and mean what we say. Regardless of what is going on, we are not going to sugar coat shit, ever.
17. Stop giving a fuck about fitting in.
When we mature as people we stop thinking that fitting in is important. We understand that fitting in does not matter. We move on and whether people like us or not we are unapologetically ourselves.
18. Stop giving a fuck about the future.
When we mature as people we stop wasting time worrying about the future. We learn to be more present in life. We stop obsessing over what is going to happen ten years from now, we let things happen and go with the flow.
19. Stop giving a fuck about things you cannot control.
When we mature as people we stop thinking about the things we have no control over all the time. We don’t spend all of our time giving power to the things that we cannot change or cannot control. Focusing on the positive and the things that we can control is going to do you a lot more good.
