50 Fu@k$ to no longer give before I turn 50

Just got tired of all the Fu@k& I have been giving all these while. Turns out, they dont even matter. Like not even those that were so important to me just a while back.

2. Saying yes when I want to say no 
3. Keeping my mouth shut when the other person is grossly wrong
4. Completing a book/ article/ movie etc because I started it
5. Reading a message the moment it comes
6. Calling people who don't call because I like to give the respect 
7. Expecting love and respect in return when given 
8. Giving love and respect when none is given to me 
9. Giving loans and believe the loan will be returned no matter whether given to rich/ poor / friend/ foe

46. Trying to follow or go with the plan even when situation changes- it's ok to change it, I have realised because everyone else does it as they prioritise themselves

48. Being so particular about housekeeping that it affects my sanity- I love my little dust bunnies and strips of soft, powdery dust, yay.
