My mind keeps wandering back to the song Word Up! by Cameo. The lyrics, wave your hands like you just don’t care, are drawing me in as I write this.
I don’t care today. My actions are showing how I feel.
And it’s not pretty.
While I say this, I’m not sure it’s the truth. Do I really not care? Or is there something deeper, darker going on?
We all have days where we’re trapped in a funk. We feel like we just don’t care. We don’t want to deal with anyone.
You’ve been there, right? I’m not all alone here, am I?
Good, that’s what I thought.
When we’re in the position of “not caring,” we’re in a dangerous position. Our feelings betray us and tell us it’s okay to act out.
