“Sometimes people let the same problem make them miserable for years when they could just say, “So what.” That’s one of my favorite things to say. “So what.” “My mother didn’t love me.” So what. “My husband won’t ball me.” So what. “I’m a success but I’m still alone.” So what. I don’t know how I made it through all the years before I learned how to do that trick. It took a long time for me to learn it, but once you do, you never forget.” ~Andy Warhol, in The Philosophy of Andy Warhol: (From A to B and Back Again) ©1975
Streaming my consciousness, “So what?” was also the name of a Joe Walsh album, which reminded me of the song “Shut up!” You could sing that song substituting the words “So what!” if you wanted to.
