One thing that comes to mind that I need to let go of — a limiting thought, and that’s this —
The being annoyed by people.
Not having patience with people.
It’s time. I need to let it go.
There’s always a thought that people are wasting my time. Draining my energy. That when I get into conversations with them, I listen. Absorb, and I hate it.
But maybe this is just an old way of being that hasn’t updated.
Maybe this was the old thought pattern because my boundaries were weak. I went into default of listening and not sharing my opinions / thoughts because I was afraid how people would feel or react. maybe this is just all old?
For example, there’s two ladies in my complex. Actually I can think of a guy too.
I don’t want to talk to any of them.
So I should just NOT talk to them.
Do I avoid them?
But then I’d talk to no one.
But maybe the deal is just to talk to those who I like. Those who bring me joy and energy.
But I don’t know. It seems like a lot of people in my neighborhood annoy me. A lot of them I don’t like or try to avoid. Downers. So that’s part environment and part I need to start looking for other people who I like to talk to. Rather than always trying to avoid.
There’s a new guy in the complex and no, I’m not interested in dating him, but I like his energy. He’s normal. That sounds funny, but again, I really think it’s a South Florida thing…
So why not talk to him?
Make him my friend?
My neighbor I used to like… he moved.
There’s another neighbor I have that I like her too… so again, start noticing more the people I do like. Start making more of an effort with them… rather than going for the people who are downers, the ones who are maybe easier to approach, more around, more available.
But I definitely saw this a lot at the expo. Just not liking people there. Not having patience for them. Not wanting to talk to them.
But again, those were the WRONG people. Downers. People I don’t want to be around.
There WERE two people specifically during my talk who were open, who had nice energy, who were listening and interested — those are the people I want to be around.
Yes. Okay. So a combination of being at the “wrong” expo. Notice more the age range and type of people at an event… and then I won’t have this problem anymore.
Spend less attention noticing the people who annoy me and more time on the people around me who I do like, who I am interested in getting to know better, etc.
And make more of an effort with them…
Yes, okay. Good.
