My Birthday Realization Thanks To Meryl Streep

jenni Lifestyle 6 Comments

I was not planning on blogging anything about my birthday until I came across this Meryl Streep quote that I found posted all over Facebook:

“That wasn’t a question”

“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

Wow. That deserves an Oscar! Haha

I can totally relate to everything the actress said.

As I celebrated my birthday, I realized that aging is so liberating! I love it!

Shoppingero/shoppingera, can anyone also relate to Meryl Streep?
