I have recently been considering (at times anxiously) my relative intolerance for the superficial, the disingenuous, the menial.  As in, why do I seem to forcefully care less and less for it?

The answer may be two-fold.  One: age.  The older I get, the less willing I become to subject myself to these surface tenets of life…because trading in the social currency of “cool” or “whatever” is most applicable in a young market.  As my personality matures, I wish to subtly ease up out of & over the edge of that pool.  If I have to behave a certain way, or say a certain thing, in order to have value in my reality at large…no, I think that personally I value my own interests (and time) more than that which is socially engineered.

Two: frequency.  As my manager says, “No, ‘time’ is always a constant.  It’s the number of events that occur in that given time, that seem to speed or slow its pace.”  Similarly as my personality/interests have grown, so too have my responsibilities and commitments.  Career; diet; exercise; rest; relaxation.  Friends; family; relationships.  New learning; practice; persistence.

When I was younger (and out drinking), much of the above was secondary to more selfish & less productive ends.  In maintaining a degree of meaning & purpose, these more wholesome & rewarding facets have shifted into focus, becoming primary engagements.  It feels better…but requires commitment on my part, that years ago I didn’t necessarily feel I needed to address responsibly.

In summation:  ¯ \_(ツ)_/¯
