Small Minds, No Time


Talking to people as of late has been interesting to say the least.

I don't know whether it's because I've been dealing with random situations, the weather being a little crazy or people have run their course in my life, but I'm fed up. My philosophy for handling people in general is that everyone single person has something to offer, whether it's great or little, they have something to offer you. Therefore when I meet people I just know what category they are going to fit in, because I've practiced due diligence and given them the chance to prove themselves. That's why I know so many people, I learned how to appreciate the worthy and how to tolerate the bullshitters, life. Majority of people deal in absolutes and usually say it's either or, and they tend to not ride the fence.

I'm slowly becoming one of those people.

The closer I inch towards 30, the more I become self aware. Meaning that everything, all of the life lessons, achievements and failures are making sense. And the more my life decisions make sense, the more I want to drift away from people that don't add value to my life. That's pretty much what you call maturing and growing as a person, you know once again, life. But a lot of people don't understand this, a lot of people are so set in their ways that it's starting to annoying me, and it's annoying me to the point where I just ignore them. Then I thought to myself that if I have to ignore them, then it's time to get them up out of my life for good. I've slowly, but surely, bought back a lot of my old policies when it comes to dealing with people and keeping my life private, and it's with great joy that I do. I didn't really like sharing things with people because you know, people tend to suck in that regards. People don't really know too much about my life, other than what I tell them, and that's how I like it. I realized that most people want to know what's going on in your life when they want to be nosey and don't really have solutions to problems. Plus the conversations are just tiring at this point.


Listening to someone who has a narrow point of view or no real desire to achieve anything in life is tiring to me. I've started talking to people and actually delving into their personal goals when they care to share them. I kid you not, there are people out there that I've talked to that are content with living their life and worrying about things that don't matter, well that don't matter to me. I'm not going to act like what I believe in is better than what they believe in, I'm just going to not say it's worth anything because it's not making them smarter or any money, therefore a waste to me.

But those people don't seem to respect that point of view, therefore, it's time for them to go.

I may sound a little hypocritical when I talk about those kinds of people, but that's ok with me, I'll keep living my life. Those kind of people are only good for running their mouth and minding everything but their own business. We all know what kind of people they are, and if you're in doubt about whether or not you're one of those people, then you're probably one of those people. But like I said, small minded people only concerned about things that I've never really cared about in the first place, you are getting the boot as of this writing. I certainly feel better and I surely don't have any regrets getting rid of the proverbial dead weight.

Have you gotten rid of some people that don't necessarily line up with your way of thinking? If so leave it in the comment section below, I'm interested in hearing your stories.

  1. I can relate! People can be such idiots, so I cut them off. I'm close to 30 too and having my first baby so this has been the best tie to purge useless relationships.

    1. We're in the same boat then, minus the baby lol. I guess it's just one of those things when you start doing things that are important to you and come to the fruition that it's just easier to snip those ties.

  2. To me life is all about inching closer to people who are going to help you grow as you also get closer to 30. I can definitely relate here. Good post!

    1. Yea I've tried to practice that and its tricky because the more you try to step out and grow, sometimes those people you inch closer to end up inching further away. But thank you for reading!

  3. I have been rethinking a lot of relationships lately. I don't have time for hate in my life and current events are making a lot of people hateful, or at least they are showing it more now.

    1. I think the theme is that as we get older, we want more peace. There are people that aren't happy with themselves, so in turn they will never know peace. That's where the come in trying to play disruptive force in your life, time to shed the dead weight. I completely agree with you!
