Sometimes, people are mean or dumb and you simply want to kick their asses.
But you know that’s not going to happen. You know you won’t be able to do anything to them. Because doing something to them means doing something to yourself.
Since I was a little boy, I feel like I’m surrounded by dumb people – and I don’t mean intellectually dumb people. But people that are acting like monkeys and refuses to communicate or to understand what’s happening. I hate those people.
I’m not saying that I’m a genius. I don’t even believe I’m one. But I truly believe this world is not about being a genius. It’s about being kind to each other, understanding others’ needs, and trying not to screw things up (more than few times).
When I was young, most of my friends were mean to me. I hated them for having that dumb attitude towards me, but I didn’t know what to do. Most of the times I was going to my room and started crying for hours.
I guess I’ll never forget those moments. But I don’t think I should forget them. I should use them as a tool to motivate myself in doing something special.
The Special Thing I’m Doing: NOT Giving a Crap
As I mentioned before, you can’t do anything to them.
If you beat them, you’ll have to deal with the police. If you insult them, you’ll have to deal with the police. Even if you try to discuss with them and give them arguments, you’ll waste energy and time, because they’ll not capable of understanding.
So I think not giving a crap it’s a solution, in this world of dumb fuckers.
But it’s not as easy as you think. Because if you don’t care at all, then nobody will care about you – and you’ll end up being alone and sad and depressed.
So, what do you do?
You start caring about yourself and about those that are kind, that are doing something with their life, about those that have a purpose and are helping others.
Those are people worth keeping around. Those are the ones that are making this world amazing. Without them, the dumb fuckers are winning.
Step One: How To Care About Myself?
If you’re asking yourself this question, you’re in big trouble.
And if you’re in big trouble, I would like to say few things to you. So hear me out.
I think you’re amazing!
You, exactly how you are right now, are amazing! You are beautiful, kind, and precious. Because you, as any other human being, are unique.
I think your actions matter!
Kind words, voluntary involvement and help, positive attitude towards every little aspect of your life, and much more than this. Everything you do it’s important for this world. Please start realizing your importance and do even more.
If you want to test this, starting today tell people how amazing they are.
If you need an opening to a conversation with a stranger say “I think you look amazing today!” and mention something you like at that person.
You will notice how they start smiling. You have the power to make them smiling.
I think your smile has tremendous power!
Go right now in front of a mirror and start smiling.
You need a reason? Notice how beautiful your eyes are. Notice how perfect and unique your skin face is. Think about how smart you are.
And then, notice your smile. Start staring at your smile and be confident. You will fill yourself with positive energy. That, right there, is the tremendous power of your smile.
I think you are an amazing friend!
If someone comes at you and asks for your help, I’m sure you’ll say yes.
Even if you hate that person and your brain says not to do it, you’ll help him anyway. That means you are an amazing friend. You can’t help it. You are made to help others – it’s in your nature as an amazing human being.
I think you are an optimist!
No matter how bad things are right now, you are always hoping for the best.
Don’t you have enough money? You are hoping you will get a raise or you will be able to do some extra work.
Don’t you have enough friends? You are hoping that you’ll get to know more people that are as amazing as you are and you’ll spend some time with them.
Don’t you have a partner in your life? You are hoping that you’ll find him/her next time you’ll go shopping.
And, most of all, you see this world as a better place for future generations. You hate violence and you don’t want it to be around you or your family.
I think you are passionate!
You are a crazy person that forgets what sleeping and eating are, at least once a week.
I know that because it happens to me when I’m writing. Writing gives me energy and food. It feeds me with everything I need to not feel any need.
And I’m sure you have an activity like this as part of your mind, heart, and soul. An activity that drives you crazy and conveys your world into something magical, where time stops and everything else seems insignificant.
But there’s one thing I’m sure about!
I’m sure you need to trust your strengths a little bit more.
Be confident! Realize how amazing you are and share your positive energy with others.
Because if you don’t realize it, nobody will. Nobody knows you as you do. Nobody will ever know as many things about you as you do.
Realize how many things you know about yourself and let the magic happen. You deserve it!
Step Two: How To Care About Others?
You should care about anyone who is willing to listen to you.
Your family, friends, and anyone you have around you that are not so happy. Cheer them and make them feel great about themselves. Help them and give them your time or money. Maybe they need it more than you do.
If you want, you can go even further and search for people that are doing amazing things. You can find them on platforms like twitch.tv, kickstarter.com, or patreon.com.
Help them and let them inspire you and your actions.
[BONUS] Stop Judging Others
Maybe someone stole some money from you. Or they scratched your car and ran away.
You need to understand that their actions are at their best in that moment. That’s all they can do. That’s the best they can do.
If you expect that people will go to work instead of stealing money, stop expecting.
You are a person that goes to work instead of stealing. They can’t even see work as a benefit. They’ve been taught differently than you. Maybe life taught them, maybe their parents, or maybe someone else.
Actually, when you realize you know nothing about others, you will understand that judging will only make things worse.
