    Question Tolerating things about yourself

    The follow passage is from some tips to balance work-life conflicts, and no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't understand it. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

    Tolerating things about yourself, the way people treat you or use up your time, your environment, and your possessions uses up time and energy that would be better spent else where.

    Re: Tolerating things about yourself

    It's not very clear and I don't think it's a good sentence, but the idea is that you should be hard with yourself and others so that you don't waste your time and energy.
