You may have one of those lists full of things that you want to be, do, lick, have, sniff, squeeze, see, play-with, drive, live-in, and possess that you've thrown into a bucket.
Said list represents things you want to experience before you stop breathing for good.
I'm all for a good Bucket List if that fancies your tickle. I want you to do all of the things that your heart desires in this lifetime and beyond, so I've created a F*ck It List that just may help you to fulfill that Bucket List.
1) F*ck working so hard at changing anyone's opinion of you.
People (you included) can only perceive through their own lens. When you try to convince anyone about anything about you, you've allowed their perspective of you to hook you in to needing to convince them.
You're not responsible for making someone else's experience of you be different than what they expect.
While they may hold an opinion of you that's different from what you'd like it to be, let them have it. You don't have to push against the opinions of others. You'll be way happier if you don't.
LET EVERYONE HAVE THEIR VERY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF YOU THROUGH THEIR LENS.
