Low tolerance for BS

It could be that you are just getting an overload of BS at the moment. Unless it is someone close to me I usually just smile and nod, lol. Probably with a bit of a quizical look on my face because I can feel that something is off about what they are saying. It took me a long time to realize what that feeling was, that feeling of lie detection.
I do see that you are aware of the negativity in yourself and don't like it. That is the first step. You can't change something if you don't realize it is there or don't feel the need to change it. Maybe some grounding time or a bit less time around these certain people for a while might help. Take a break and spend time doing something positive that you enjoy
I think part of this is knowing when to let go of certain people and who you can let close to you and who you can't. I don't call people on their BS nor do I try to. And I stopped complaining because it brings me down. But sometimes you do have to complain until you find the strength to set proper boundaries. I just know who I can and can't let close, trust myself, and keep it going.
I am going through that right now...a close friend was mad at me today...and can't discuss it with me yet..BS.
I have a very good "feeling" its a misunderstanding,
A month ago her father died,boy friend dumped her and her daughter cut off all communication....so the past few weeks I have been doing what I normally do...help her and support her....in 30 minutes we are supposed to meet with 20+ others for dinner...so nowI am sort of messed up emotionally and we are going to be seated next to each other...this maybeone of those mixed up who are those feelings nights.
