Easy to please. Easier to displease.

Dumb and Dumber

Dumb and Dumber (Photo credit: twm1340)


My wife, Jen, was exasperated with me.  I don’t remember what the back and forth was about.  There are too many times to choose from.

“You’re so hard to please!” she said.

“No, I’m not.  I’m easy to please … I’m just easier to displease.”

This is not the best thing to think about myself.   I give power to factors out my control.  Then I feel a reduced sense of power and control in my life.  This leaves me displeased.

There are a lot words for this.  I’ll call it “dumb.”

Now that I see it, I can change.  I can choose.  Choosing not to change would be dumber.

I choose:  “I am easy to please.  I am difficult to displease.”

Typing that new belief is harder than I expected.  It’s uncomfortable.  It’s new.  It creates a shift though.  Writing and reading it creates an increased sense of power and control in my life.  This pleases me.


Note:  This didn’t save when I was typing it.  I clicked ‘Save Draft.’   I got the login prompt.  I lost the draft.  I exercised my new choice to be difficult to displease as I re-typed.  It wasn’t easy.  But it was worth it.
