Do you know what the one thing is that people freely give away but yet only we only have a limited amount of? Time.
And annoyingly someone can either make it feel invaluable or as a disposable asset, as easily replaceable as a battery. But it’s not. Time is precious. YOUR time is precious.
You need to be with the person who makes you feel as though the time you’re giving them is the most precious thing in the world.
Don’t tolerate people who waste your time and behave as if it isn’t a big deal when they dip in and out of your life.
Your time is one of the most valuable things you can give to another person. So pick the person you’re giving it away to very carefully.
But also, a very valuable piece of advise is this. Just because the last one was a waste of time doesn’t mean the next one will be, so don’t let previous experiences alter your perspective of the next people who walk into your life. You should give everyone the opportunity to start on the same grounds, no holding grudges from the past.
Imagine it like this. When we’re born, we’re given a watch with a set amount of time, like a really long timer. Once the timer runs out that’s when we die, would this change how we lived? Probably.
We’d probably take more risks and put up with less s**t from people who we tolerate.
We’d probably spend more time around people who inspire us and make us happy, the ones who encourage us to be the best versions of ourselves.
But yet because we all act as if we have endless amounts of time, we tend to be careless with it and we don’t behave as if our time is precious.
And if we don’t see the value in our own time, how do we expect others to see the value in it?
So remember, stop letting so many people be a classic waste of time in your life.
