Meryl Streep Is Such A Wise Woman

 

Meryl Streep is one of my favorite actresses.  Thanks to Dr. Rex’s blog, It Is What It Is, I found Meryl even more likeable after reading her personal take on her life.

Meryl touches all important bases in her life and in mine as well.  I’ve come a long way on the path of my life, and I know what’s important to make me a happy person.  I believe Meryl’s personal life mantra can reach out and touch so many more.

I No Longer…..

“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.”
