The Importance Of Having Patience In Our Everyday Lives

patiencePatience most definitely is a virtue. If there is one thing I have learned in my life it is that patience is a virtue.

I find it easier to be tolerant, easier to forgive and easier to suppress anger than I find it to be patient with people and situations. [anger management techniques]

People like me who are easily irritated, get irritated and overly annoyed by the smallest of situations. For example I get irritated when I am the passenger in a car and they are going too slowly.

Actually I get irritated if they are going the speed limit. I get irritated and highly annoyed if people are taking too long to tell a story. I also get irritated when people interrupt other people or when they are rude to people.

These are all situations that having a little more (ok a lot more) patience would do me a lot of good.

There are millions of people just like me who are smiling and nodding their heads right now because they know exactly what I am talking about.

It is so important to just breathe and realize nothing is going to happen. So what if I am the passenger and the driver is going too slowly for my liking? So what if the person is interrupting someone it isn’t my position to say anything; it is the person’s who is being interrupted responsibility to call out the interrupter.

And if someone is taking longer than I think they should to tell a story it clearly means I need to sit back and relax and realize they must get a lot of happiness out of telling their stories that way.

The alternative to accepting these behaviors, taking a deep breath and realizing nothing terribly wrong is going to happen if I just accept the situation is to confront the situation or have a little ‘fit’, which, having a little ‘fit’ would far outweigh the issues at hand that made you impatient in the first place.

Now depending on your level of frustration when irritated you may have a few other issues to deal with. Many people and they are mostly men get so impatient and annoyed that these feelings of annoyance turn into frustration and, within a short amount of time the frustration can turn into aggression.

If this sounds familiar and it may be what you experience you should really concentrate on being a little more accepting of other people.

    Patience always pays because hard work always pays. Patience is a part of hard work. It is not easy to have patience. You have to practice patience.

    i definitely agree that patience is a virtue. Everything in life, needs patience. I’ve learned so much, from my past experiences the value of waiting. Sometimes, we dont always gets what we want immidiately and we become so stubborn and rude, or sometimes feel selfless. but youll suddenly realize that the purpose of those hard times is to make us stronger, and to prepare us for a much bigger plan.
