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.
When you require another individual for your survival, you are a parasite on that individual. There is no choice, no freedom involved in your relationship. It is a matter of ego rather than love. Love is the free exercise of choice. Two people love each other only when they are quite capable of living without each other, but choose to live with each other.
I love it when there’s so much bass in my headphones I can feel the pressure rebound.
If there is unhappiness in you, first you need to acknowledge that it is there. But don’t say “I’m unhappy.” Unhappiness has nothing to do with who you are. Say: “There is unhappiness in me.” Then investigate it. A situation you find yourself in may have something to do with it. Action may be required to change the situation or remove yourself from it. If there is nothing you can do, face what is and say, “Well, right now, this is how it is. I can either accept it, or make myself miserable.” The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.
You know how swimmers/bikinis/speedos are suitable to wear at the beach, but anywhere else it’s just like wearing underwear? Well facebook isn’t a beach, so then doesn’t it become inappropriate to galavant around on facebook flaunting your underwear.
I see and dig deeper because it isn’t the same. Not even close.
Day 30: This isn’t goodbye, I know you still got my back. Brother; a person who is there when you need him; someone who picks you up when you fall; a person who sticks up for you when no one else will; a brother is always a friend. P.S. You were so much my teacher because like a true little sis, I looked up to you and wanted to be like you. #30daysofzak #zakncheese
Day 28: ‘Calling friends names in different voices until they hear you’ (or decide to stop ignoring you)…cos there was that one tone that you started with, and I knew stirring was to follow. If that failed…you’d mess with the hair! #zakncheese #30daysofzak (slowing down on the count as i don’t want it to end)
Day 27: We didn’t have many tiffs, and it was almost impossible because you thought I was too nice and couldn’t take me seriously (I know Larry, it’s my own fault for always giggling at him hehe). But, there was that one time I un-brothered you on facebook so you knew I meant business, and “oh lordy, it’s a fire! I thought somebody was bbqing”. From then on it remained in your ammunition and you took ages to re-add me. You know you never stopped being my brother, I just had to show you who’s boss. Booyah. #30daysofzak #zakncheese #wordszakdisliked
