I heard the following the other day – what you tolerate in your present becomes your standard. I cannot remember where I heard but it stuck in my head because it is somewhat akin to my notion that you are where you are because that’s where you want to be. If you wanted to be somewhere else you would or you would at least be transitioning to where you want to be.
One of the benefits of COVID-19, if there have been any benefits amongst the global carnage is that it is forcing some people to take stock of where they are. My expectation is that global divorce rates will lift as the pandemic begins to wane. This is a good thing as people decide that at least one part of their life is not as fulfilling or satisfying as it should be. Years such as the one to date should be viewed as natural firebreaks in your life where you work out what you want, what you don’t want and more importantly what you will tolerate.
My view is that you shouldn’t actually tolerate anything.
