Quote Of The Week ~ Jan 17, 2016

 

Amy Schumer is my new “it” girl.  If you have never seen her stand up act I highly recommend it.  She’s vulgar and hilarious…two fabulous traits every woman should have.  

In a world that puts everyone under a judgmental microscope I find this quote to be totally empowering.  

There’s always going to be people who don’t like you or agree with you.  They might think that what you have to say doesn’t matter to them.  But it matters to someone….you.  

They may think you’re unattractive or that you aren’t making the right choices for yourself.  They may think a lot of negative things about you.  But the only person you should bother trying to impress is yourself.  Of course I always think a person should be kind to another person but opinions are just that …opinions.  I am learning to go by the motto of… I don’t give one unless I’m asked.

  1. She’s vulgar and hilarious…two fabulous traits every woman should have. ..

    Not sure why? It’s not explained? Too much vulgarity, in our world.

    Simple Definition of vulgarity
    Popularity: Bottom 40% of words
    : the quality or state of not having good taste, manners, politeness, etc.
    : something (such as a word) that is offensive or rude
    ~ Merriam-Webster

    Cheers Jamie.

    1. To me that would mean cussing and saying things as she feels the need to say them. I like women with a sense of humor who aren’t afraid to express whatever they feel the need to express. Say what they want to say without thinking they are going to offend everyone. We live in a world where people are offended too easily by “vulgarity”. My motto is if you don’t like what you are watching then change the channel. Don’t like what you’re reading…stop reading it. Don’t like what you’re listening to shut it out or get headphones.

  2. I really love this quote Trista! It’s right up my alley! I feel the same damn way – that no one is going to ever make me feel that what I have to say is unimportant. I lived my life for too long fearing what my family and friends would think if they knew the real me and knew my real thoughts. I don’t live like that anymore. I say what I have to say and if they don’t like it, they can piss off. Another fabulous quote Trista! #candidcuddles

    1. Thanks Michelle. I have upset people throughout my life with doing things my way. But I also believe that’s the only way to learn about life. I started commenting on candid cuddles and then got side tracked but shall be over to check yours out!💌Trista

  3. So reading some of these comments, cracks me up. I think our views change as we age, as well. When I was younger and going to church more often, I would gasp and try my best not to swear and would often judge others for vulgar behavior.

    Then later, as adulthood hit me more, struggles with money, getting married/having kids and all the frustration of parenthood, and more financial issues – I’ve become a curser. Yes, aloud. And some days worse than others all depending on the pressure I’m under, and lack of patience.

    As I’ve hit my 40’s, came the “Who gives a damn what others think” attitude- I don’t have patience for you or this crap and I’m going to tell you. I might try to be nice and find the “right” mature words, again, depends on how much patience I have at that precise time. (and to whom I’m speaking, like a pastor vs. another parent) Either way, I’m pretty candid – some days (situations) might have more colorful language than others. I’m not going to apologize, but I am aware, because my children scold me.

    I like Amy, because I can identify with her. Vulgarity and all.

    I wonder since I have less tolerance in my mid-40’s, what will I be like in my 60’s? That’s why old people are so “cranky” they have zero tolerance for bullshit. (except some extremely sweet grandmas – but that’s not my kids’ grandma – hahahah, my mom used to curse like a trucker, but tries to tone it down in front of the kids.) 🙂

    My mom always taught me to be honest. 🙂

    1. Yes I think someone got a little testy but oh well, this is my blog and I’m going to say what I want on it. Everyone has a right to their “opinion” and it’s a nice change up to actually have someone who may not agree with what I say. I agree with you, now that I’m in my 40’s I just really don’t care much about what people think about how or who I am. I know the friends that will be lifers and love me for who I am and the rest just simply don’t matter. Like the saying “Those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter” Now those are words to live by!💌Trista

      1. Off topic: I never want everyone to agree just for the sake of agreeing. They can offer a different point of view, as long as they can humbly disagree and discuss a different view that doesn’t point out everyone else’s view as “wrong.” – not that this is the case here, just in general. 🙂

  4. I like her, too. She doesn’t seem to care about whether people find her “proper”! I can associate with her – I love that she tells it like it is, and I think the world would be a more straightforward place if more people had that quality!

  5. Amy Schumer is hilariously sarcastic, I must agree. And, she’s right on the money with this quote. Nobody in this world has the right to judge anyone else. We all walk different paths, and there is absolutely no way to completely understand anyone else’s perspective unless we’ve seen and heard the exact things they have, which is impossible. So, like you said, we say and do what matters to us and those we care about. Forget anyone who decides to pass judgement, gossip, or ridicule!! #candidcuddles

  6. I love Amy, she is hilarious & also has some truth to some things she says. She’s right on the money with this quote & the only person we need the approval of is ourselves. The easily offended don’t have a sense of humor & tend to take themselves quite seriously. Thanks so much for linking up lovely x

    1. I thought that “Train Wreck” was funny but not that funny but her stand up is just hilarious. And I have seen her interview on Ellen too and her sense of humor is just like mine…I know her and I would be fast friends lol. In the real world that is. Thanks for hostessing!
