This is my response to the falsly attributed "Meryl Streep Quote" I No Longer Have the Patience.
I think the original quote ignores our ability to grow and learn from stressful situations.
I've been in relationships where I've been manipulated, experienced cynicism, excessive criticism, hypocrisy, dishonesty. and took the easy way out. I said "I am better than this, I will not tolerate being treated this way" and left. I left with a sense of confidence, self respect & and dignity, but I also left with a sense of disconnect.
a sense of regret for not trying to understand the other person's perspective. A sense of regret for not learning how to accept the negatives, a sense of regret for not being able to unconditionally love other people.
Here's The original quote

I now have patience for most things, not because I've become humble, but simply because I've reached a point in my life where I am not afraid to experience what displeases or hurts me. I have patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature because I believe that they will help me grow as a human being. I no longer see pain as something I need to avoid, but rather something I can appreciate the opportunity to learn from...
I have the will to love those who do not love me, and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I have eternal happiness within, like sunshine, the rays of my happiness will strike you regardless of how much light you're emitting at the moment.

Now I will spend time on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided to coexist with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I tolerate and welcome selective erudition and academic arrogance. I get along perfectly fine with those who don't know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. I have patience for ALL people because everyone deserves my patience.

I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me.

I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have
