I think I've got lots of good qualities, but being a chill out-relaxed person isn't one of them. I'm a little crazy and have control issues but I'm sure you guys already knew that... That's not what this post is about: today I want to talk about caring less about certain situations and how that can help us feel a bit better with ourselves. 

I read a tweet the other day that said something like: "social media is very toxic and messes you up but I still wanna be part of the conversation and have fun" and I was like DAMN, that's true. In the past couple of years, the internet has given me everything, a job, friends, opportunities and fun moments but it has also given me lots of stress. It's good and bad, it's love and evil. The thing that I'll try to do from now on is give less, care less about people, take the texts, the follows, unfollows, likes and comments in a much lighter way. 

What's the point in stressing out about people that you haven't even met in real life? Or about how often your friends like your photos or leave comments for you? I like the idea of friends being supportive, I mean, who doesn't? But I need to start expecting less from everyone, otherwise, I'll go bad. So, I'll start thinking about strategies that help with situations like these and if I come up with something great, I'll let you know for sure. Until then, let's be colder chill the f out.

// Creo que tengo muchas cualidades buenas, pero ser una persona tranquila y relajada no es una de ellas. Estoy un poquito loco y tengo problemas de control pero estoy seguro que ustedes ya sabían eso... De eso no se trata este post: hoy quiero hablar de que ciertas situaciones te importen menos y cómo eso puede ayudarnos a sentirnos algo mejor con nosotros mismos.

El otro día leí un tweet que decía algo como: "las redes sociales son muy tóxicas y te alteran pero aún quiero ser parte de la conversación y divertirme" y yo fui como DAMN, eso es verdad. En los últimos años, internet me ha dado todo, un trabajo, amigos, oportunidades y momentos divertidos pero también me ha causado mucho estrés. Es bueno y malo, es amor y maldad. La cosa que trataré de hacer de ahora en adelante es dar menos, preocuparme menos sobre las personas, tomar los mensajes, los follows, unfollows, likes y comentarios de forma mucho más ligera.

¿Cuál es el punto de estresarse por gente que ni siquiera conoces en la vida real? O sobre qué tan seguido a tus amigos les gustan tus fotos o te dejan comentarios? Me gusta la idea de ser apoyado por amigos, digo, ¿a quién no? Pero necesito comenzar a esperar menos de las personas, de otra forma me voy a poner mal. Así que, comenzaré a pensar en estrategias que ayuden con situaciones como éstas y si encuentro algo grandioso, seguro les contaré. Hasta que eso suceda, seamos más fríos y calmémonos alv.

  1. I simply had to appreciate you once again. I am not sure the things I would’ve taken care of in the absence of those hints shown by you regarding that industry. Entirely was a very difficult dilemma in my circumstances, nevertheless being able to view the very skilled approach you treated the issue forced me to weep over delight. Now i am happier for the work and then pray you recognize what a great job you have been carrying out training people today all through a web site. Most probably you have never come across any of us.


Hey, thank you very much for hitting the comment section. Let's keep it nice out here, okay? (:
