No One cares

By Ian Strimbeck

Just stop wasting your time and learn to suffer in silence, nobody gives a shit anyways. We’ve all been there, whether on the giving or receiving end of it. You all know who you are. The ones that search out someone’s ear, like that of a desperate Hyena on the prowl for food. You thrive off of it, intoxicates you even. Playing the hand of the victim can only get you so far in life before it exiles you from even your closest family. Victimhood, like excuses, is a drug whether you realize it or not. You feel bad using it for the first time, but the elation from it is just too strong to quit cold turkey. So you keep using them over and over and over again, like an addict chasing their first high.

 Everyone has had a bad hand at some point in their lives, so stop pretending you’re the first one to get the shit end of the stick. People die, people get fired, relationships crumble, people get injured or sick. This is nothing new, but you are addicted to the pity from others. With that said, everyone should have support from others in dire times. Don’t get it twisted, there’s a difference between unforeseen situations that have occurred and forecasted situations that you put yourself in. Admitting that everything that has been handed to you is your fault is difficult, some would even say unbearable. Regardless, the show must go on, you must continue forward at all costs. Everything is your fault.

 It’s not that people don’t care about your health and well-being, it’s just that no one cares about all the bullshit you come at them with. “Did you hear what ____said?” “Can you believe ________did that? “Well must be nice for ______.” Why does any of that matter? Are any of them paying your bills? Do they determine your success in life? Do what they do with their lives directly effect yours? The answer is painted right in front of you, but your sheer ignorance is making your blind. The common rebuttal is “Well, I’m just making conversation.” Really? There’s countless ways to start off a conversation, and you decide to incite drama. Try instead of proposing the questions of self-growth or purpose, that’s a surefire way to have people remember you.

 Your growths, failures, hardships, fears, and realizations are all your choices. Who cares if it wasn’t your fault you got fired? The fact is it happened and all you can do now is accept it. Who cares you broke up? The fact is it happened and all you can do now is accept it. Who cares if your car got damaged? The fact is it happened and all you can do now is accept it. The moment you start pointing fingers, you are losing priceless time that could be spent growing yourself. Never allow emotion to impair your judgement. The choices you make now, has a direct correlation to what will occur tomorrow. Learn to always be cognizant of your actions. Just stop wasting your time and learn to suffer in silence, nobody gives a shit anyways.
