Check out The Stratton Setlist's "Personal Empowerment - Aspen Jacobsen Confronts Negative Emotions on 'Shouldn't Give a Damn'" article. (link below) “The first two lines … I wrote after a sleepless weekend," I explained in the interview for the article. "I had constant nightmares that left me scared to fall asleep because of feeling guilty. It was through writing this song that I had let go of the guilt and reminded myself that it’s OK to be ‘selfish’ sometimes and take care of yourself before others. That is healthy, that is self-love. This song is me declaring to myself and the listener that you don’t have an obligation to give a damn for someone with whom you have a toxic relationship.” Thank you Lori Barnard Stratton for this great article!
