How many of us lose our patience because we haven’t got time to listen because of our hurried lives? I feel we have less time now than when I was growing up.
We’re also focusing on the wrong things, making things instead of people a priority. The world is moving quickly and in order to keep pace we need to move with it. It doesn’t help when others aren’t moving with us.
When we feel anxious, unhappy, or worried about something we have no patience. Do we see ourselves as being impatient or do we just see other people being difficult? Sadly, our circumstances can influence the way we feel about ourselves and others. When we’re not happy, we have less patience. We have lost sight of the importance of patience.
So how do we learn the art of being patient?
Luckily being patient is something that we can all nurture and cultivate, but it’s important for us to first go back to basics. We must challenge ourselves to be more accepting of the things that need time. Things happen and complete all in good time.
Impatient people want things done yesterday. They certainly don’t waste time in getting the job done, but they’re forgetting to enjoy the experience that goes with it.
When it comes to family, patience is important. It’s a key component and forms the basis of a happy childhood. It’s important to nurture the parent and children relationship through patience. All relationships need time and patience.
That once we’ve mastered it, we will go on to replicate success in so many areas of our lives, not just with our children.
