I tend to be the kind of person who is often disappointed in other people, and I'll fully admit that. I'm somewhat of a perfectionist which is something I'm trying to re-teach myself to get away from. Over the years, I've found perfectionism is often followed by disappointment when others seem apathetic, do things half-assed, quit on their own commitments, or delay executing their promises.
Needless to say, it can be hard to impress me. It's hard to find people who consistently follow through on the things they say which is even more frustrating because I'm like, "Why even say it in the first place then?!"
I'm no angel in the area. I screw up sometimes too especially since becoming a mom and on those days when I feel like I'm suffocating in my own responsibilities. But when someone lets you down over and over, it's exhausting and toxic. At that point, you have to sit back and wonder, should I lower my standards or move on?
I might be alone in this. If not, and you're feeling the same as me or going through a similar experience, I think you SHOULD NOT lower your standards. Never let someone waste your time, twice.
Move on and be patient as you seek to find the rare few who get your vibe and share it. That's when the real magic happens.
