“I just don’t care about myself”

There is a comment that is famous in the reddit community and beyond that is in response to a user’s post that simply states “I just don’t care about myself.” The comment describes four rules for life:

  1. No zero days, do something everyday that brings you closer to your goals
  2. Give gratitude to and do favors for your past, present, and future self
  3. Forgive yourself
  4. Exercise and read books

I haven’t thought about this post in a while, but reflecting back I can definitely include this among things that have helped me get through tough times and shaped my perspective. Don’t have much commentary on it at the moment, just thought I’d share.
