It's your choice to tolerate or walk away from bothersome behavior. Lectures about good behavior often fall on deaf ears.You only have two realistic choices--either stop dealing with the person OR accept him/her as is and change your response to them. YOU must change your response instead of trying to change them. He drove me crazy by not making plans until the last minute and I kept my time free waiting for his call. I explained that since he did his thing, I'd do mine. Once I accepted reality, I told a friend who was always late, "Meet at my place so I can do things while I wait." She did. He got insulted when I wouldn't commit to join him for an event.Many of us complain about people, often the same people over and over for doing the same thing over and over. I finally learned one of the most valuable lessons of my life.I used to be the queen of complaining about the kinds of things I often hear from others: • He takes me for granted. I don't have to like what people do but must accept people as they are, flaws and all, and decide whether to deal with them.
So let’s just make things really easy, less confusing, and less complicated. • My wife leaves dirty dishes till morning, even though I tell her how disgusting it is. • My roommate never picks up after herself, no matter how many times I ask her to.I’m sorry if this sounds old-school, but I believe that some things are just better left to traditional practices and roles, and this is one of them.If guys just continue to assume that traditional role of asking the girl out on the date, and planning the first date – even if you met on Bumble – then everything will just move along much faster and easier!
