I’ve reached a stage in my life where I just don’t give a damn anymore.
I know that I should, but I just don’t.
I should care that some poor slob can’t pay their bills and needs a job to help build their confidence, but I don’t.
I should care that taxes are being raised every day just so some jackwang in Washington can fund another stupid idea that a bunch of lazy, good-for-nothings screamed and ranted over, but I don’t.
I should care that my little community of “wannbe like everyone else” community leaders can’t come up with a unique or genuine idea to save their life, but I don’t.
I should care that an ideology of stupid non-believing blowhards seems to be scaring everyone into a panic on the other side of the world, but I don’t.
I should care that a bunch of kids who’s parents and grandparents spoiled the hell out of them now want society to “forgive” their student loan debt even though that would be the stupidest thing we could ever do, but I don’t.
I should care that there’s a bunch of lazy, slothful people who genuinely think that living in America means that we rob from the rich to give to the poor so the poor don’t have to feel guilty about being poor, but I don’t.
I should care that a small mom-and-pop community store is now going out of business because the big, bad corporations moved in across the street and offer greater convenience and more products, but I don’t.
I should care that millions of lives have been impacted by natural disasters or warlike conflicts around the globe, but I don’t.
I just don’t care.
And you probably think that I’m pathetic because I don’t care as much as you do; but when you consider it, caring more than you should makes you just as pathetic as me not caring because caring more than you should can give you a much higher opinion of yourself than you ought to have.
The reason you get a higher opinion of yourself for caring too much is because you think that people who don’t care about anything aren’t as good as you are, however, the truth is…those people who don’t care, really do care but they just don’t care about the same things you care about.
Never considered that, did you?
Of course you didn’t, because you’re too busy being judgmental of those people who don’t care about the things that you think are important.
Caring or not caring, that is pathetic.
