It’s about time we stopped giving a shit about the things in life that don’t matter, things that create noise, things that take up unnecessary time and space. If letting go is an acquired art, start today and work on it till you’re happier. Also, may be start with checking off items on this list.
1. “Let’s catch up sometime.”
You and I both know that’s a gentle and socially acceptable way of saying ‘we’re never going to meet, and this is exactly the amount of time I will spend having this conversation with you.’ It doesn’t happen and, even if it does, it’s a rare occurrence. So the next time you hear this, don’t keeping hanging on to these words.
You’re getting older by the second. The second. If that’s how often you’d want to be stressed out then you’re not getting far, buddy. The upside? The older you get the more you realise it was never about age.
3. Social media
It’s not a big deal if you’re off social media and, no, it doesn’t mean the end of the world. People you’ve barely met or known long enough don’t need to know what you’re upto. It’s called privacy and it’s not just a setting on Facebook; it actually means something. Besides, may be some of us old soul types like craning our necks for Literature, and not the mobile phone.
