The high cost of impatience and being impulsive.
April 18, 2009 9:54am CST
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!

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 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 :)
