Everyone reaches that point in their life where they no longer possess the capacity to care about things that are irrelevant, or generally pull them down. Sticking to rules prescribed by a corrupt social order is not on your to-do list. You already know who is in your life to stay, and the rest is just white noise.
How do you know when you’ve reached that glorious threshold? How do you know you have cut out all the baggage from your life? Read on to find out!
1. You don’t care about the opinion of people you don’t even know!
I mean, why should you? Other people’s unwanted opinions are rendered moot when you realize they don’t know you. Sure, you listen to the people who are close to you, but that judgmental lady on the street? Nah!
2. Don’t know what the correct fashion ‘rule’ is, better yet – don’t care!
The day you realize you can wear horizontal stripes even if you’re not size zero is the day of spiritual freedom. Ridiculous body standards on television can’t stop you from wearing your favorite bikini just because you have hit thirty. You are gorgeous the way you are, and you know that!
3. You can’t care about your EX anymore
Well, isn’t that why he is your ex in the first place? You guys didn’t work out, probably his fault as much as yours. You know some things aren’t meant to be, wrap up and move along. Going back to December isn’t your thing anymore.

4. You have forgotten how to be polite in bed
You no longer fret and compromise about your pleasure with your partner. You’re old enough to know what you want, and how you want it and they better give it to you right – or you won’t bat a lid before teaching them how to.
5. Not holding back when someone does wrong by you
Earlier you were careful about whose toes you might step on, and you swallowed one angry outburst too many. Now you just don’t take flak for what you have not done, and you return an earful of what came at you-with interest!
6. You don’t think twice about ending toxic relationships
By this time, you know for sure that some people are just plain bad for you. And the only place for toxic garbage is down that incinerator. People who hurt you and bring you down no longer get third, fourth, or a fifth chance at it. You hurt me, you’re out.
7. Your mistakes don’t make you give up
You know how many mistakes it takes to get something done successfully. At the end of it, you are judged not by what you failed at but what you did brilliantly. So you are okay with making mistakes, you know it happens to the best of us.
8. You quit trying to fit in
You let your weird light shine bright, so that it attracts other people just as weird as you. You don’t have to be just like every run-off-the-mill girl. Your quirks make you different and that is way cooler!
9. You know reality from social media
The number of likes, follows or heart-reacts don’t really change much in your life. You know that, and you no longer get palpitations when someone ‘unfriends’ you. Like the real world, the World Wide Web is full of good and bad; you know what is important and what is not.
10. You know ‘The Perfect Body’ is an impossible standard
Your body is only perfect as long as you love it. You don’t care about waist sizes, stretch marks and those extra pounds that never seem to drop. You eat what you want, and you stay healthy, and most importantly, you love yourself.
11. Status Symbols mean nothing to you
If you buy a Louis Vuitton bag, it will be because it is beautiful and you’ve got to have it, not because it is a ‘status symbol’. You know who you are is reflected in your behavior and how presentable you are. Brands and tags are not your thing.
12. You know you have limitations
You know there is a lot that will happen in life no matter how much you try to stop it. You can’t fight gravity, and you know it. You just take it easy, take your time and don’t spend your time pushing a wall.
13. You don’t do anything half-heartedly
You know what you want; your decisions are snappier and clearer. So you don’t beat around the bush. What you like, you give everything to – and what you don’t, you simply do not care.
