Cut the crap

* Cambridge Dictionary: "cut the crap" is a rude way of telling someone to stop saying things that are not true or not important

For the past few weeks, I have been searching for the perfect action to express those weeks; and today I found it.
In dictionary, "cut the crap" means stop talking nonsense . For me, it is the answer to each single situation I heard about or happened to me in these few weeks.
I used to think the answer would be "fighting yourself" and that you are supposed to find the point where you can balance your mind and heart, and how you should create peace among both. But let's be honest here and "cut the crap".
Finding balance in your life between any thing is mandatory, but in order to do this, you have to be frank with yourself and simply say the truth.

"I want this. Naa, I want that. You know what, this one is much better. Mmmm, or may be I really want that one over there." STOP it, no one is getting everything he wants in this life. Pick one, get along with it and cut the crap!

"That person keeps annoying me, over and over, and he always gets on my nerves." Flash news for you, you are the one who is allowing him to annoy you. Talk to him, show him where his limits are and cut the crap!

"I don't like my job anymore, I feel useless in it. It is the worst job ever, and I have no future in it." Three options for you. Quit and find a new job that you may like. Find what is wrong with your current job and fix it. Adaptation isn't always a bad option. Stop complaining, start working and cut the crap!

"I am in love with this person, but I may like that person more. Shouldn't I wait and see if I will meet my perfect one?!" One word for you, "decision". If you can't take the decision to be with this/that person, it means that deep down, you know this/that person is not the one for you. Stop questioning, take the decision or hit the skip button, move on and cut the crap!

"My friend/partner has changed, and I don't like it. I want the old one back!" You know what, we all change, including yourself. Talk to him, make it or break and cut the crap!

Not being teenagers anymore means we have our own list of what is accepted and what is not. We draw the limits were others interfere with our lives, and who have the authority to do it anyway. We are allowed to make wrong decisions or take the wrong turn from time to time. It won't be the end of the world as we know it.
All the time, we know what we are searching for, we know what we need. We just don't have the guts to say it out loud.

I am a Libra. I believe it is always possible to find the balanced point where you can have the best out of the most contradicted worlds. What I learned in these past weeks is that there is a huge difference between finding that balanced point and allowing yourself to live in the grey in-between area between these worlds.

Bottom line, no matter what you face, don't accept living in the grey area. Take decision and "cut the crap".
