Being BUSY is absolute bullshit

orqVu3Y - Imgur

Hey you!

Yes YOU!

Did you know that calling yourself “busy” today is absolute bullshit?


I’ll tell you the fuck why.

Because EVERYBODY is busy today.

Teachers, cleaners, drivers, bosses, waiters, friends, family, your mom, writers and even that bird on the tree is busy.

You want to change that?

Challenge yourself then.

Ask yourself: Am I really that busy or am I using it as a convenient excuse where I allow the little work I have turn me into a weak, whiny little bitch?

So what happens when you’re always too busy?

You can’t do shit.

You didn’t indulge in your passion.

You didn’t return that call or reply that text.

You left your loved ones hanging.

You’re also probably an ironic bitch as you told your boss you’re too busy to do his dirty work because you’ve other work to do.

Now, what the fuck do you want?

Do you want a fulfilling life filled with passion, awesomeness and where you can shout, “Yes! I fucking did that!” to others and make them envious as shit?!

Or do you want to continue being busy with whatever forever and leave your life (and probably important people) hanging like a loose, tangled mess of a thread?

Do that.

Then grow old.

Then look back in your life, while you’re on your rocking chair, or deathbed and be like, “I was too busy to do give a shit about myself.”

You want that you little shit?

No, I bet you don’t.

So man the fuck up.

Stop making excuses.

Do what you have to do.

Then do what you want.

If you want to make that time, you will make that time.

“But Alden… I’m not the busy one. People are always too busy for me :(“

Then fuck these guys.

They’re not your real friends.

They don’t really give a shit about you.

If Stephen fucking Hawkins can find a way to communicate words out, then everybody can surely find a way to reply a simple text, return a call or move their damn legs to make shit happen.

Whoever declares busy like it’s time for war is wired wrongly in the head or just don’t plain a give a shit about you.

Dump them.

And move the fuck on. They’re not worthy.

Stop being busy. Sign the fuck up below.

    Hey Alden,

    Just started reading your articles, man they are awesome. You are doing very good work. Opening our eyes to the reality.
    Just one problem Archives by month in articles doesn’t seem to be working every time I hit any moth it brings me to the same page. It is really annoying to keep on clicking to go to the desired article. Hope you fix it soon.

    Loving your articles Alden,

    Gotta say I am (not always, but sometimes) a person who uses this BS “busy” excuse, and each time I do a part of me feels guilty, probably for lying to myself and creating a non-existent barrier of some kind out of nowhere. Will change that.

    Your words hit home, thanks man.
