Can’t Win, Won’t Win

Not Caring

They told me to think for myself

So I did

Thinking like no one else

But then everyone got mad

Told me what I should say

Well what do you want from me?

You can’t have it both ways.

    • Thank you for reading and commenting. I can make some suggestions.

      We have to find security in ourselves first. Security in who we are and what we represent. If we find that, we don’t need to defend ourselves against anyone. Because we know the truth – we know what we said and what we did and all the times we were right and we were wrong.

      I’ve also found that most times, people’s reactions to you are not necessarily based upon what you said or did, but more so based upon their own experiences and insecurities.

      We also have to realize we can’t control others or change them. We can only control our own behaviors and actions.

      I’d encourage you to give that so thought my friend. I know once I let go and stopped caring what others thought, it was truly freeing. I felt a burden was let go. I no longer let people control my emotions and behavior. They no longer dictated me.

      I wish you the best. Keep your head held high. You can do it.

  1. Strangely enough, doing exactly this is such an amazing and relieving experience. And some will tell you that you are being selfish – That you only care about “me, myself and I” – One should do what’s best for yourself and stop giving so much of yourself away to other people. You don’t want to be left with nothing at the end. Who cares what other people think and say? Isn’t it our life to lead any way?


    • I am in total agreement. We think we need to be reactive to situations and people in attempt to control what is happening. We can’t control others – only ourselves and our own behavior.

      One of the best things I ever did in my life was to let go and stop worrying and caring about what others think, said, and did. I wasted a lot of my life allowing others to dictate my behavior and attitude as I was reactive to them.


      • Same this side. Once I stopped caring what others thought of me, my life improved immensely. I think most should attempt this, and then we will see change.


      • I am glad you came to that realization. I have found the difficulty is making the decision to stop caring. Once you do, actually not caring anymore is easy. Thanks again for sharing your perspective.
