Stop doing this to yourself….

I definitely need to engage in this more.  I was re-reading this article about 10 things to stop caring about today.  I can never understand why we are so wired to spend countless hours and emotional and physical energy on this stuff when much of it is out of our control!  Here is the list in short:

  1. Stop caring about everyone’s opinion of you.

  2. Stop caring about being politically correct.

  3. Stop caring about looking a certain way.

  4. Stop caring about what everyone else wants for you.

  5. Stop caring about the boundaries others set up.

  6. Stop caring about what everyone else has.

  7. Stop caring about the imaginary state of perfect.

  8. Stop caring about being right all the time.

  9. Stop caring about mistakes.

  10. Stop caring about things you can’t control.

I admit that I am very, very guilty of engaging in the aforementioned behaviors…particularly #’s 1, 4, 9, and 10 !
