That may sound a bit harsh, so let me elaborate.
What l mean is while van dwelling, I've learned to not give a shit - with in reason, of course.
I no longer give a shit if people see me getting out of my van after spending the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
I no longer feel the pressure to move at 7am (when the store opens) or at the latest 8am, when the buggy guy starts going around the lot. Today l left at 11 am, it was warm with the sun shining in the van and l just lazed about.
I now park closer to cars, because l don't give a shit anymore!!!! I'm at the Lowes parking lot now and there are some cars nearby, their owners are on their lunch hour, l now just drive up and park - instead of avoid.
I've learned to no longer give a shit that someone has to wait 20 seconds while l fill up my 1.5 liter water bottle at the gym, since l have no problem waiting for others to fill theres'. They don't know that l use this water to live off in my van. I actually fill two a day, one after my workout as l head to the showers and the other after the shower on my way out of the gym. If l REALLY didn't give a shit, l would fill both up at the same time, since l don't have to, l don't, because l will not be rude.
I actually find myself saying in my head "l don't give a shit". It helps me to just relax and do what l need to do.
I've learned to not give a shit when l fill up my van with gas....after all l have two tanks. They can wait for me to finish.
Now with all that being said, l still consider other people, l would never throw trash out in a parking lot, nor would l sit in my van after pumping gas and fill out my spending log (l have seen others do it), l would pull forward and take my time.
I guess what l have done is just become a little more like the rest of the population and put themselves first and Not Give A Shit!!!
