What to do when you think nobody cares.

Chances are you’re stuck in a rut.  Dead end job.  Life seems routine and just downright boring.  Lonely and feeling a bit like nobody gives a shit.  Could be that it’s just me, maybe that’s why I’m writing this.  Could be that it’s you too and that’s why your reading this. 

You ever hear the old saying, “People don’t care about you as much as you think”? Well, they don’t.  Right now.  Try doing your own thing or just be yourself and do what makes you happy.

All of a sudden, people come out of the woodwork and want to give you advice, or “help” you or just judge your decisions and life you are choosing to live.

If you are having the feeling like life is getting boring and nobody cares.  It just might be that you’re just as pathetic as the people you hang out with.

“You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

Following your friends and their ideals of how life should be.  You’re predicable and just downright boring.  You’re not interesting.  You’re just like them.  They know they’re boring that’s why they look outside their lives.  To find someone who is doing something different.  Someone to latch on too and live through.

People don’t care until they see you living out what makes you happy.  I know, I know.  People are fucked up.  You don’t have to tell me.

When I started writing and posting recipes and my adventures.  I was approached by more people telling me what not to do than what to do.  Don’t curse.  Your recipes are too difficult.  You cook with too much booze.  I was working recipes and writing trying to fit what everyone was saying.  Writing got almost nonexistent.  I couldn’t come up with recipes to save my soul.  I used to come up with new recipes on the daily.  Eventually, I said, “Fuck it!” I say that a lot and just did what I wanted to do and make me happy.

I didn’t care what people thought anymore and I just started being myself.  The writing just flowed and came naturally.  Being in the kitchen was more enjoyable. Recipes were more fun to work with and the creativity flowed.  I didn’t worry about the recipes or words I used in my writing.

The best thing happened.  Happiness.  Ideas.  Recipes.  Writing.  Freedom.  All those things that I love to do got easier.  And people started to notice.

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out!?” – Dr. Seuss

So, if you think nobody cares.  Try being yourself.  Nobody cares because you’re not worth caring about.  You’re one of them.  You follow them, act accordingly, you’re predicable and boring.  You’re a crowd pleaser, magazine reader.

The world is full of followers.  Be yourself and watch people take notice.  If you like to dunk your Oreos in orange juice.  Then do it.  Wear that shirt that you think people will talk shit about.  Oh, they will.  You know they will.  But if you love it. Wear the damn thing.  Too many people live in fear of what people will think.  Life is short.

Be yourself and watch people, life, success and the world take notice. Most importantly, watch your happiness flourish.
