I’ve come to a point in my life where I do not want to waste time. Period. I no longer have patience for a number of things. Am I bitchy? No. Self-righteous? Absolutely not. I just don’t want to waste time doing things that displease me, deplete my energy or hurts me.
Don’t like me? Ah, so what. Move on. This goes for “family members” too. I am not the type of person who is going to tolerate bad behavior – just because. If you lie, manipulate, guilt trip, bully, live a life of hypocrisy, are dishonest, heap on cheap praise or are passively aggressively competing with me…here’s a news flash. Have you noticed that I’m not around and no longer available? Yea, that’s right I’m done and have no patience for that.
Is this a hard line? Some may think so but then again, I’ve noticed that my life is much fuller and happier. Am I impatient? Yes and no. I am impatient with people, places and things that undermine the fullness and happiness of my life. But have patience for certain things.
In the end, if you think really hard about it, wouldn’t you only want to love those that love you and smile at those who smile at you. Because for me, if you bring anything different, I really don’t have time for you and err go, no patience.
