We are millennials, the entitled beings of Gen Y. We live in an age where narcissism is applauded and caring about the smallest things is seen as an accomplishment. We give importance to the wrong things and lose track of the things that really matter — ourselves. Maybe it’s time to stop this madness and stop giving a f*ck about these things.

Here are 18 things that aren’t really worth your time.

1. The abundance of selfies you click every time you go for a party or for brunch to get approval from strangers on the internet

2. Whether someone thinks the kind of music you listen to, the movies you watch, the books you read, or the art you enjoy is cool enough


3. Keeping yourself updated on the personal lives of celebrities — who they’re dating, and who exposed their junk while vacationing on a private island


4. The opinions of people that affect the way you live you life, especially when they have no importance in your life


5. Who is making more money than you, who has the cooler job, or how much you think they’re earning yearly

6. Feeling terrible because all the people on your Facebook account who are getting engaged or married, having kids, and posting pictures with their significant others


7. Experiencing FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) when you see people posting pictures of the cool music festival or party you missed out


8. What people are going to think about the clothes you really enjoy wearing, even though they’re not designer or in season


9. How many followers you have on Twitter, Instagram or how many likes or retweets you get on your pictures or status updates


10. Being the only one in the friend circle without a significant other and feeling like the third wheel at every event you attend

11. Changing your personality and yourself to get people to like you and accept you into their circles


12. Not being found attractive or not getting a response from someone who honestly isn’t really worth your time


13. Not hitting the “milestones” in life like you’re told to — graduating from college, getting a regular job, getting married, and having kids


14. Watching and investing your time on reality shows like ‘Bigg Boss’ or ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ when you know there’s nothing real about them


15. Wasting time hating on celebrities like Justin Bieber, Kanye West, One Direction or Yo Yo Honey Singh instead of using that time to focus on things that matter

16. Justifying yourself and your choices to people to get their validation when it doesn’t matter


17. Still caring about that asshole of an ex who cheated on you and continues to send you ‘I miss you’ texts when all he means is a booty call


18. Trying to prove to people who aren’t listening to you that you’re happy and you’re whole, even though it doesn’t seem like it
