I read somewhere here on TMF, probably as someone's quote the following:

"There's no cure for not caring"

That has really stuck with me. I've been thinking about it and it's so true.

If you don't care about XYZ then XYZ doesn't bother you, nor does it make you happy, sad, mad, etc. You have no feelings about XYZ at all because you don't care.

Since you have no feelings there's no "problem" or "issue" so there's no cure needed. XYZ doesn't need to exist. It doesn't need to be made better. It doesn't need to be destroyed. It's not bothering you because you don't care. It's not making your life any better because you don't care. You don't even think about XYZ - you don't even really know that it's here.

Everyone cares about so
