“The primary cause of disorder in ourselves is the seeking of reality promised by another.”―Jiddu Krishnamurti
What is something you have or are pursuing, that other people say is worthwhile, but you haven’t found valuable? Do you continue to pursue it based on the promises of others?
I’m not really one to pursue something because others are advising it. I tend to follow my own path in most things.
however, I have started focusing less on the quantity of my “friends” and more on — no, not on their quality (I can’t afford to be that picky up here), but rather more on — the quality of my time. I’m giving these “friends” a hearty “NO” more often than I used to in situations wherein I genuinely don’t want to do something. I inform my associates that I’m not presently engaged in the conversation at the moment, so maybe we shouldn’t be having it
ever right now.
I’ve not yet fully claimed my time back unto myself. but I am making progress. and that’s better than nothing.
