Meryl Streep has No Patience for Bullshit.




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


A big tip of the Ten Gallon hat to Mulderfan for sending this my way.

Looks like she would have trouble getting along with narcissists. No more bullshit for me too.

No doubt! That's the most encapsulating, all encompassing don't eff with me no more statement, I believe I have ever heard.

Words to live by!

It's so eloquently stated I wonder if she wrote it out, or if it just flew out of her mouth.

Hear hear. And yeah, Q - she's so amazing I wonder if she just blurted it out - I'd have to spend days trying to get my words right (now I'll just plagiarize Meryl)

I would absolutely rather be alone than be with judgmental assholes. Or phoneys.

And I find that the bitchier/less humble I am, the more respect I get. Or at least, I get more ROOM in this world. Not so much crap tries to push me around.

What's up Miss Kravitz? I have always thought Meryl was extremely talented. I mean Duh! But she has a depth that is hard to find in these Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian dominated days.
I don't know why I singled out Ms. Swift. For all I know she may be a Rhodes scholar. But I don't think Kim is.
