I'm Too Old For This Shit

I'm Too Old For This Shit

"I'm too old for this shit."

Excuse the expletive. But that's the famous line of Danny Glover's character in Lethal Weapon. And I bet most of us "adults" have found ourselves saying these words in our mind or out loud, in this exact form or another (because some of us never use this language for sure).

But what are the things that make you feel like you've had enough. What could make you go say, "Nope. Nu-uh. Not anymore, darling. I'm too old for that."

I'm Too Old For This Shit

Crappy books, tv programs, and movies

TV shows and movies should entertain. Books, aside from educating, should do the same. If they're not serving their purpose, they're wasting my time. If the author is not talking to me, I move on to another. There are too many good books to read to waste time on the crappy ones.

Small, nonsense talks

I was never a fan of small talks. Maybe that's because I'm an introvert and we avoid it. I can tolerate it for sure for courtesy's sake. But as I got older, I prefer to cut it and go straight to the important stuff.

Fake friends

We've met them in high school. Even at the workplace. They're everywhere! I used to give them the chance to change, or understand them as much as I can. But that means allowing them to suck out my energy, my joy, and my time. Fakes friends are a waste of time. I'm over that. I've said my goodbye.

The comment section on social media

If you want a stress-free browsing on the internet: Stay. Away. From. The. Comment. Section.

Blind disciples of shitty leaders

Sometimes I wonder why some people blindly follows and supports someone who is obviously a---for the lack of a better word---jerk. I see some friends on Facebook share fake news and declare their 101% support to such leaders. Laughing at who these leaders make fun of. Being happy at the misfortune of the opponents. Really? Here's me clicking the "unfollow" button.

Lending money to lazy people

If they're too lazy to find a way to increase their income, I'm not going to support them on it. When I was young and naive, I believe such stories like they needed the money for a checkup or an emergency. But come payday, they're out in a bar abusing their health anyway. I work my butt off every day, every single day to earn and save for the rainy days. If I can do it with my small petite frame, what's stopping you?

Waiting for other people to act

I'm done waiting. Waiting for people to move, to act, to apologize, to live their lives. I can't postpone the fun or delay my dreams waiting around for people to finally realize how to live. I'm too old for that crap.

Society's "standards"

Yes, I'm in my thirties. Yes, I'm not married yet. Yes, I have friends who are members of LGBT and I love them. Yes, I'm a registered pharmacist but I don't practice my profession. Yes, I'm an introvert and you might mistake that for me being a snob or an anti-social, but that's your opinion and I don't plan on changing that. No I'm not sorry if you don't understand.



Critics will see you walk on water and say it's because you can't swim. If you think that way, I don't have time for you. I detox my body. Why should I entertain toxic people in my life? That's just crazy.

Low-paying sponsors/clients 

Most of these low paying clients are those who have more demands than those who pay the right fee. I may not be a blogger extraordinaire and I don't have millions of followers but I guarantee a good quality content and a highly engaged audience. Studies show that micro-influencers are much preferred now by sponsors because they have a more engaged community.

These sponsors have the gall to tell you that you need to leave a good review on their site for their products as part of the conditions for payment. That for me is deception. I give honest reviews only. So thanks but no thanks.

What has made you go "I'm Too Old For This Shit!"?
