Building on my article Rules For Not Giving A Fuck here are some of the most powerful mantras I use when I need to shift my thinking and stop sweating the small stuff.
Although the F word is not always openly welcomed when spoken out loud, we can think whatever the hell we want—it’s the one place that no one has access to.
And if we’re brutally honest, do we have any free fucks available for someone who judges us for saying the F word aloud? Especially if it’s at a time when we really need to say it.
Not that we need convincing, but studies have shown that those who use swear words are, generally speaking more honest, have better psychological and physical health, suffer less pain, are more humorous, and are more powerful as they stand up for themselves more.
So, as some people actually gave enough fucks to study the use of these words, we should pay them the respect that is due and appreciate it as another reason for having no fucks to give about using whatever words we choose, whenever we need or want to.
