Hilarious song about having 'no more f***s to give' is a battle cry we can all relate to

Whenever life becomes too tedious or stressful, it seems that the human psyche has a release valve that turns on and we just go, "F it."

I give up. I no longer care. I got nothing left.

It's a wonderful moment when we go from being at our wits end to being on the other side of the madness. Because, after all, as Mark Manson, author of "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" says:

You and everyone you know are going to be dead soon. And in the short amount of time between here and there, you have a limited amount of fucks to give. Very few, in fact.

Thomas Benjamin Wild Esq. perfectly encapsulates this feeling in a song he released last year on his debut album "Awkward Encounters While Walking My Dog" called "I've No More F***s To Give."

Played on a banjolele — a combination of a banjo and ukulele popular in the England Dance Hall days of the 1900s — it's a song about trying to accomplish something in life, coming up and empty, and reaching the point where you're blissfully over it.

Wild is an English singer who's been performing around the UK for the past three years. According to his website, his debut album reached number 3 in the Billboard Comedy Albums Chart, and features a collection of original satirical songs about the modern world delivered with good old fashioned style, wit, and wisdom.

You can hear more of his music on Spotify.

"I've No More F***s To Give"

I've tried, tried, tried, and i've tried even more

I've cried, cried, cried, and I can't recall what for

I've pressed, I've pushed, I've yelled, I've begged

In hopes of some success

But the inevitable fact is that it never will impress!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have runneth dry

I've tried to go fuck shopping but there's no fucks left to buy!

I've no more fucks to give

Though more fucks I've tried to get

I'm over my fuck budget, and i'm now in fucking debt!

I strive, strive, strive, to get everything done

I've played by all the rules, but I've very rarely won

I've smiled, I've charmed, I've wooed and laughed, alas to no avail

I've run round like a moron, to unequivocally fail!

I've no more fucks left to give

My fuck fuse has just blown

I've been hunting for my fucks all day but they've upped and fucked off home!

I've no more fucks to give

My fuck rations are depleted

I've rallied my fuck army but it's been fucking defeated!

The effort has just not been worth the time or the expense!

I've exhausted all my energy, for minimal recompense!

The distinct lack of acknowledgement has now begun to gall!

And I've come to realize that I don't give a fuck at all!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have flown away

My fucks are now so fucked off they've refused to fucking stay!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have gone insane

They've come back round and passed me while they're fucking off again!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all dissolved

I've planned many projects, but my fucks won't be involved!

I've no more fucks to give

My fucks have all been spent

They've fucked off from the building and I don't know where they went!

The fasting period of Ramadan observed by Muslims around the world is a both an individual and communal observance. For the individual, it's a time to grow closer to God through sacrifice and detachment from physical desires. For the community, it's a time to gather in joy and fellowship at sunset, breaking bread together after abstaining from food and drink since sunrise.

The COVID-19 pandemic has limited group gatherings in many countries, putting a damper on the communal part of Ramadan. But for one community in Barcelona, Spain, a different faith has stepped up to make the after sunset meal, known as Iftar, as safe as possible for the Muslim community.

According to Reuters, Father Peio Sanchez, Santa Anna's rector, has opened the doors of the Catholic church's open-air cloisters to local Muslims to use for breaking the Ramadan fast. He sees the different faiths coming together as a symbol of civic coexistence.

"I love being a nurse because I have the honor of connecting with my patients during some of their best and some of their worst days and making a difference in their lives is among the most rewarding things that I can do in my own life" - Tenesia Richards, RN

From ushering new life into the world to holding the hand of a patient as they take their last breath, nurses are everyday heroes that deserve our respect and appreciation.

To give back to this community that is always giving so selflessly to others, CeraVe® put out a call to nurses to share their stories for a chance to be featured in Heroes Behind the Masks, a digital content series shining a light on nurses who go above and beyond to provide safe and quality care to patients and their communities.

First up: Tenesia Richards, a labor and delivery nurse working in New York City who, in addition to her regular job, started a community outreach program in a homeless shelter that houses expectant mothers for up to one year postpartum.

Upon learning at a conference that black mothers in the U.S. die at three to four times the rate of white mothers, one of the widest of all racial disparities in women's health, Richards decided to take further action to help her community. She, along with a handful of fellow nurses, volunteered to provide antepartum, childbirth and postpartum education to the women living at the shelter. Additionally, they looked for other ways to boost the spirits of the residents, like throwing baby showers and bringing in guest speakers. When COVID-19 hit and in-person gatherings were no longer possible, Richards and her team found creative workarounds and created holiday care packages for the mothers instead.
