“He who cares the least, holds the most power”.
And I have to wonder about both of these sayings.
How is one supposed to know when to "give a damn" and care….and when not to? And when it is all said and done, what kind of life would it be to not give a damn and not care.
But one the other hand….
I do get it. There have been situations that I could have “cared”, invested myself but opted not to. I am learning to consciously decide not to be a part of chaos, deciding to choose to remove myself from all uncomfortable situations that I am not “required” to participate in. I have more than enough difficult life conditions; I do not need to take on more.
My own boat is sinking. I am bailing as fast as I can, barely staying afloat myself. I cannot to take on anymore grief."Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" Otis Redding
