I no longer have patience for certain things

I no longer have patience for certain things

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.” -Meryl Streep

  2. This is true. But this is also true that we find these type of people in our society, in our colleagues circle and even in our home also. So long we train our mind to make free our heart from narroness and selfishness the burden of garbage has be carried out by us in our mind.

  3. Its not about not having patience, its more about focussing on better things or people (precisely the self) than wasting energy, whivh was being wasted so long on things and people who didnt deserve.

  4. You don't have enough Pessence. You don't want to listen harsh truth. You expect smile but you don't smile. You have lost your will to love to those whom you feel they don't love you but never try to look their soft corner. You hate academic arrogance but never try to improve by self study. You also hate popular gossiping but never try to enjoy to share the spirit of knowledge.You hate comparison but never try to evaluate your own thought and actions which may be inspiring. You hate betrayal but not try to learn lessons from the episode. You hate disloyalty but not try to make other learn how to breed loyalty. You hate discouragement and expect compliment but never reciprocate to make your friend feel the spirit of encouragement. You dislike exaggeration but never say brevity is the soul of wit. You like animal. We are also animals but rational animals. You hate rigidity but not rady to show your flexibility. You have no Pessence for those who don't deserve your Pessence. I find you are suffering from obsessive compulsive Disorder. Or someone cheated you and played with your emotions. Remember in most of the time life is an echo. So feel free start to tune your heart with new love. New hope and faith that one fine morning you will over come again
