Not interested

Not wanting your money.
Not caring what you do with your money.
Not caring how you make your money.
Not caring how much money you make.
Not concerned if you're wasting your own money.

Not trying to convince anyone or use white lies.
Not trying to impress.
Not trying to pad a resume.
No more trying to get hired.
No judgment from me if you have to do these to get by.

Not waiting for that e-mail to be opened.
Not waiting for a call back.
Not waiting for others to click or swipe.
Not waiting to be mentioned in your tweet.
Not waiting to be selected.

Not eyeing any prize or toy.
Not desperate for recognition.
Not in need of more "friends".
No need for others' acknowledgement.
Not trying to fill a void.

Not desperate for awards.
Not hungry for fame.
Not looking for status.
Not hunting for a title.
Not impressed by any of yours.

Not looking to tell tall stories.
Not craving your attention or admiration.
No need to throw big parties.
Not waiting on others' indecision.
Not sad or ashamed to say any of these.

Not jumping through hoops.
No playing others' games.
Not asking for permission or approval.
Not feeling like I need to beg or plead.
Not my problem if you feel like you have to.

Not trying to please you.
Not trying to offend anyone.
Not pretending to care.
Not pretending at all.
Not sorry if you feel like you do.

Not ticking off someone else's boxes.
Not wanting to waste my time.
Not wasting others' time.
No more letting others waste my time.
Not my fault if you're wasting yours.

Not ok when you or others pretend to do (their jobs).
Not spending my time making others look good.
Not burning out to make things appear better than they are.
No more fixing the problems that you created.
Not my problem if you don't know how to.

No tolerance for bullshit.
Not taking your bullshit.
Not my problem if you easily accept others' bullshit.
Not approving of you when you bullshit others.
Not embarrassed for you when you believe your own bullshit.

No more enduring things for money.
Not ok with a salary as a habit.
Not looking for a promotion.
Not eyeing that corner office.
Not sympathetic if you do these things knowingly.

Not sorry for telling you all of this.
Not angry if you don't understand.
Not regretting living by all of this.
No judgment from me if you can't or won't.
Not surprised if you didn't already think about it.
