Haven’t we gone through enough?
The thing is you can’t wait for something if you’re in a hurry… if you’re in the middle of an emergency… if you’re doing a rushed project that is due tomorrow. You’re agitated to finish something. Frustrated for not making it on time. Violent, even. Right? That’s because you lack patience. A simple word with a deep meaning.
It doesn’t always mean you need to wait. Well, that’s mostly what you’re going to do, of course. Because patience means you have to know when and how to react to something that makes you uncomfortable. But that’s the purpose. It makes you stronger. Makes you wiser. Keeps you enjoying the feeling of freedom because you don’t have to worry about being provoked.
Being patient lets you have the power over hatred and anger. It keeps you from doing the wrong things you’re planning to do. Holds you from deciding without thinking. Prevents the possibility of you to do something you’re going to regret for the rest of your life.
Try to wait sometimes. It’s worth the try.
