People often ask questions like what really is patience?, when do you need to exercise patience?, why don’t I seem to have this patience you speak of?
It is as important as other attributes like tolerance, you’ll agree with me that in life generally patience is key.
What really is patience?
It is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.
Patience is not complete without understanding , calmness, and if one is patient then annoyance or wanting to revenge/payback shouldn’t be involved – I mean people say they are patient and still plan how to payback.
For instance someone kept you waiting for a long time, meanwhile you’re calling, texting, insulting and plotting how to delay the person in return. Absolutely not patience!
When do you exercise patience?
This part can be related to different areas and situations in life.
when do you exercise patience in
- Personal goals?

- Waiting for a partner?
Well, It is important to note that you’ll need this in your day to day activities due to the fact that we deal with different people everyday.
Knowing when to exercise patience should be when you see the need to, in situations that would avoid the following

Why don’t I have patience?
Well, I’m guilty of this sometimes it get hard to tolerate some certain things and some special people and most times i make plans or goals and can’t wait for them to actualize causing doubt and loss of peace of mind.
You should channel your energy more in understanding people, situations and other happenings even in your life for only then would you have patience even with yourself and understand that something’s might take time and all you need to really do is exercise patience.
Patience in our everyday lives should be normalized!!
Being patient with yourself does not mean slowly giving up, it means you understand its a process and would tolerate anything.
Be patient even with yourself..
