Is Your Give A Damn Busted!

Do you have an emotional limit? ... A line that, once crossed, there's no returning from? Then hold on to your short hairs, you need a theme song to go with that kiss-my-bleep attitude!


Count on country music to come up with a song that tells it like it is. When we're not feeling tolerant of anyone or anything, the last thing we need to hear is a typically useful saying like 'turn lemons into lemonade', when really what we would prefer to do is turn lemons into simulated road kill!

My Give A Damn's Busted, by Jo Dee Messina



So don't deny your fed-up status, claim it! Go ahead and scream out these words to anyone who'll listen, and if they're not willing to listen, open a window and let the neighborhood know that your 'Give a Damn is Busted'... <---maybe that's not a good idea?

Considering the damaging affects that anger and frustration have on the body, it's probably a good idea to play both of these songs when you've maxed out your patience!

Here's another 'shove-it' country tune you can amp up when you need to wipe away those tears. If all you wanna be is Done, then 'Done' by the Band Perry is one hundred percent about just that...you've had enough garbage and you've decided to stop letting someone or something rent space in your head; you're done!

So get whatever it is you're fed up with out of your system and remember, it's ok to be mad for a while! But not for too long ... feel the pain, go through it, and get passed it. Then go ahead and celebrate your life changes with a huge glass of lemonade!

  1. I love you Brite-Ideas!!! This is such a perfect post and a whole lot of fun! We should feel allowed to get angry, work through that anger and then get on with our lives. May I just say, "My Give a Damn is Busted!" Thank you for the Monday morning laugh!
