Are you a patient person? Can you wait patiently?

I have not always been a patient person. Now, I have learned that there are times that you have no choice but to wait patiently. At one time in my life I could not wait if there was a long line. What about you are you a patient person?

I can be a patient person if I find that the people or the things I wait for are worth, and they must come sooner or later. I also estimate what I feel while I'm waiting : am I happy and excited for what I'm expecting or am I hurting myself with a vain hope and letting many other cheers passing through?

Thank you for your response. Patience is sometimes a hard thing for me to do. The world is always in such a hurry that it is difficult to slow down and enjoy the simpler things. Happy Mylotting. Happy New Year.

I thought I have a long patience before. Now, I totally discovered that I don't have patience. MY life totally went wrong because I was impatient. Single events that happened in my life can be very helpful because in a single situation, I found out that I was impatient after all.

Life has taught me to be patient so, yes, I am. There's no point in getting upset if you have to wait in a long line or if traffic is congested. It doesn't change the situation...only makes you feel worse. There have been and will be many times when I have to wait for something so I just go with the flow and try to stay relaxed.

Hi, You are correct. we need to maintain patient in our life. We must act according to the situation. We should not follow patient at all the times. I think there is wordings which says, "maintaining patient will lead to leader of the world". There are several problems, if we get tensed and no problem when we are patient.

I'm learning how to be more patient, but it's a long process. I used to be extremely inpatient, but I have become much better over the past few years. I've learned that the best things are worth waiting for, and life doesn't have to be rushed. Sometimes I just get caught up in what I'm doing and I don't take time to admire what is around me, and I don't want to live my life like that. I want to enjoy all the blessings I have and not let them pass me by. I agree with the statement that says patience is a virtue. It really is. If we could all practice a little more patience, there wouldn't be so many arguments or break ups or relationships broken. Also, we would all feel better and more positive.
