conflict of interest

The main problem being the Girl Who Gives Zero F*cks is that it’s a lonely business.  Honest, and self-protection is a premium but also a big downer. It’s in conflict with Patanjali, the sutra that states “Undisturbed calmness of mind is attained by cultivating friendliness toward the happy,  compassion for the unhappy,  delight in the virtuous,  and indifference toward the wicked.”

I am blowing the first part. The others I can do from a distance but cultivating friendliness is tough going. The happy seem okay without my company and it’s hard to find a way in , something that lasts beyond “hi.”The trouble being the one who gives zero f*cks is people get used to it and forget about you. So I should probably just accept it as a side effect.

It’s probably too late for me to change my situation. This is more of a warning to anyone who decides to go down the Zero F*cks path.

. It’s a lonely one. Granted you will have some peace of mind and be known for your honesty but you’ll be  eating lunch alone.
