No Nonsense

The Logical Heart Knows Best

I’ve made a lot of changes in my life and have tried new, different things and have stretched myself beyond my fears into the unknown.

I’ve discovered that I don’t have to put up with anything that I don’t want to. The more I’ve taken action, the stronger I’ve become in knowing what’s right for me and I am very clear and aware of when a situation is not aligned with me.

Because I’ve grown accustomed to change, to taking action, to doing what’s right for me, I am no longer afraid to correct course swiftly without hesitation. It’s like I can’t tolerate nonsense anymore and want no part of it.

Maybe this comes with age? I don’t have the patience for pettiness, immaturity, manipulation, and games. I don’t play anymore. I have no qualms about saying no, to communicate my boundaries and I won’t take the bait. I won’t even go there. I’m so done in the blink of an eye.

I used to feel guilty like I wasn’t being kind, tolerant, compassionate or loving. I’d make excuses for the hurtful behavior of others and would let it slide while internally I would have mixed, hurt feelings and unclear boundaries, sacrificing my peace and happiness thinking that was the right thing to do. I was trained to defer to others and be a nice good person. Turn the other cheek (so I could get slapped on both sides, lmao).

I question whether I’m jaded or intolerant then decide, that no, I’m just being reasonable and loving of myself. Why put up with BS when I’m grown? I expect others to be grown too. If not, I’ll give them a few chances to shape up, then if they’re still immature and messy, I decide what I’m willing to put up with.

These days, there’s not much wiggle room at all. I want peace, respect, accountability, interdependence, alignment, and love. I will not stay for very long in circumstances that are causing drama.

Not anymore 🙂 I love me now 🙂

I’m proud of myself for becoming stronger. I’m not afraid to leap. I know from experience that I can trust myself. I really do know what’s right for me.

I now have the confidence and conviction that I always wished I had.

I can still be loving and kind while maintaining healthy boundaries. Yeah, people can be ridiculously, transparently self-serving and small-minded. They think they’re pulling a fast one or whatever, being Eddie Haskellish, lol 🙂

Yes, I briefly get irritated, cross, angry, then I laugh about it and realize that I get to choose what happens and I decide, make it so, then let it go.

I’m free 😀
