There’s this saying from a YouTube video (that I’m kind of ashamed to even share here) that I’ve just really been embracing recently. It’s kind of been my mantra. “Usually I don’t have time but today, I got time”. And the funny thing about this is that I thought I didn’t have time before, and that I just gave no f*cks, but come to find out, I do give a f*ck and I INDEED, got a lot of time.
Most people tend to say “I don’t have time for ______ today”. But recently it has come to my attention that if you don’t have time for someone and their BS at that moment, you better find time soon because whomever you didn’t have time for then, WILL be back with that BS later.
So yeah today, I got time, and will considerably have A LOT of time moving forward. I’m over ignoring ignorance and childish behavior, and I will no longer participate in it because honestly, some things just need to be nipped in the bud there and then.
So when you want to say some racist shit to me, I got time. If I’ve told you “No” on multiple occasions and you’re still in my face, I got time. If you defend Donald Trump and sincerely think he’s a good president, I got time. If you say some LGBTQ-phobic shit, I got time. If you feel like you are going to disrespect me or anyone else I care about, I got time. If you’re on some anti-feminism, misogynist BS, I got time. If you come for me and I ain’t even send for you, I got time. If you text me some off the wall mess, I got time. If you lied to me and I find out, I got time.
And sure, sometimes people just need to be ignored, but there are some people who just don’t understand. So for the ones that don’t get the silent treatment, I will, for sure, have time for them today.
And for the friends who you got time for, but seem to still not get it, it may be time to cut them out completely…
Because ain’t nobody got time for that…
