When you were a child, you didn’t tolerate much; you simply expressed your displeasure. Now that you are a socialized adult, you tolerate stuff because you are not trying to be negatively affected by what annoys you. Toleration’s represent compromises you have talked yourself into and, in the process, you use up a lot of energy tip- toeing around things. You will be a lot happier when you simply stop tolerating what annoys you. But to actually stop tolerating something you may first have to eliminate the fear of the consequence for stopping the toleration. This is especially true in primary relationships where we tolerate in order to feel more secure in our relationships. Make a list of those things you tolerate in your life. Make a point to list how these toleration’s are slowing you down or alleviating a consequence. You can live happier by simply saying no to toleration’s. You can do it by learning how to respond differently to what annoys you.
