#quoteoftheday

May the other know when I’m scared, and take me in his arms without asking too many questions. May the other be able to notice when I need silence and do not go away slamming the door May the other accepts that I worry about him and do not get angry with my concern, and if it is excessive, know how to say me this clearly and with good humor. May the other notices my weaknesses and do not laugh at me or take advantage of it… That if I’m just tired the other does not just think that I’m nervous, or sick, or aggressive, or say that I complain too much That if I begin to cry for no reason after one of those days, the other does not suspect immediately that it is his fault, or that I don’t love him anymore. That if I’m in a bad phase, the other may be my accomplice... That if I get excited about something the other doesn’t slow me down. That if I eventually lose my patience, lose my grace and lose my composure, may the other still think I’m beautiful and admire me.

#quoteoftheday

Have patience with all things but first with yourself. Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being. You’re a perfectly valuable, creative, worthwhile person simply because you exist. And no amount of triumphs and tribulations can ever change that. Unconditional self-acceptance is the core of a peaceful mind.

-Saint Francis de Sales

#quoteoftheday

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 do not deserves my patience.

-Meryl Streep
