The high cost of impatience and being impulsive.

I have opened a topic here in mylot with regards to patience, and found that many would consider themselves very impatient. Impatience plus acting on impulse is really a bad combination. What has your impatience and being impulsive cost you? For me, it cost me my love. A man who no longer saw me as someone worthy of his love. I can't begin to explain what happened but I know it was because of my impatience and being impulsive to what I do and what I say. I do regret it so much, but there's nothing I can do anymore with that. So, what has your impulsiveness and impatience gotten you?

I won't say that my impatience or impulsive reaction have lead me to leave my last job but yes it was a foolish decision and I am still regreting it. I left that job becaue one of the girl working there didn't accept my proposal. Well, that was the most ugliest decision of my life, by which I am still suffereing. It was almost 18 months ago!

Yea, I was thinking that I am very good and I will get any kind of job anytime. I was wrong and I didn't get any entry after that job. Reallity is cruel isn't it?

Hi laydee, nice discussion. I too am very impatient and impulsive , a deadly combination. I agree with what you say, it can create havoc with your lives. I have hurt my near ones because of this nature but thankfully the damage so far has only been temporary.I try to correct myself, with not much improvement. i think it is inbuilt in us , heaven help us

It's good that the damage it has caused you is still temporary, don't wait till things really get ugly and you can never turn back what you've done or said. Take it easy. It's all not worthy.

It is really difficult if we felt so overconfident of our one love. Chances are we become so insensitive - impatience and impulsive. We just do things we thought was right without empathizing with them. At this time, it can really cause to loose us our one love ones. I have an ex whom I experience what you're talking about. I loose him because of my temper (impatience and impulsiveness, etc). But after a year of break-up, I gave my love to the one who truly deserves it - to my now husband. I am now thankful that I broke up with that ex otherwise, I won't have the chance to meet my husband, whom I really love so much. and whom I know who loves me too. Cheer up, laydee! Things will be better for you. Just enjoy your being a single now. explore the world :)

That's a good way to put it. But I can't really relate to 'finding someone' for now because I'm still in the grieving stage. But perhaps in about a few weeks or months' time then I'd see things more clearly. Thanks for the wonderful story.
