1. What does DW stand for?

Don't worry

Carefree people use DW to mean "don't worry." These people believe that worrying is meaningless because it doesn't change anything. And you know what? They're right!

However, if you're currently FO, receiving DW in a text or chat message can seem both condescending and dismissive. Know that the person who sent you DW is likely rooting for you, and they know you have what it takes to overcome whatever is worrying you.


"DW, things will work out."
