An interesting point in life: donotgiveadamnism

rhettFabulous, really.

I’m only just now realizing how much of life is reflective (in the reactive rather than thoughtful sense.) I can’t quantify it precisely, but it seems to me that at the very least over 70% of reactive behaviour is based on the circumstances of the self rather than on the external action itself.

I say that because progressively, the effects of external stimuli have been considerably dampened for me. A lot of what I would have found offensive or unpleasant at 20, is entirely insignificant at 37.

The process started a while ago but is only reaching what seems to be its full maturation now. Lovely.

    At age 51, it becomes “Idontgiveashititious”. I’m deeply infected with it. 🙂

      I’m not far from that point 🙂
      But isn’t it incredible? Youth seems to be an exercise in futile self-flagellation. We torture ourselves over every little thing; only to realize every little thing doesn’t matter at all.

      -giggles- And at 62 it becomes “Idon’tgiveflying….” Very liberating.

    I imagine you giving a sort of reverse twinkle. The unpleasant stimulus arises, your face changes, the other retires hurt. You old French aristocrat, you!

    I was going to leave a witty comment, but then… frankly… 😉

    I am first approaching this stage but I might just bypass it to I don’t give a flying fuck

      Fucks don’t fly. They can leap really high, but they can’t fly. Now shits, shits CAN fly. So, be careful if your around any. They could land on you.
