Learn Patience...

sorabji.com: What have you failed to do?: Learn Patience...

    You know in 18 years of my life, I never learned to be patient. Never learned to wait back and see what happens, to wait for the tea kettle to boil to say it in other terms.

    I guess I never saw the reason for patience when something could be done now. Although that makes for a great work ethic, it doesn't do good for ones love life, or dealing with people who stand at an intelligence level lower than ones own. I don't have a problem with said people, I tend to get along with them fine, and they seem to like me. And yet I seem to lose my patience with them quickly, and thus I become irritable.

    Relationship wise, I guess its just the waiting. Going out for a dinner on a Saturday night, I'm suppose to pick her up at 8:00 pm and I'm ready by 6:00, so now I must wait for 2 hours... That has happened to me many times before, and its only because of my impatience to to see the one who's heart and love I covet so much.

    And yet, I cannot say with entire certainty though that a lack of patience has always been a bad thing. Being rash and unable to sit and wait for the plan to develop, has yes gotten me in deep shit. But on the other hand it has saved my ass a few times as well.

    I guess I just need to kick back, relax, and well chill next time I'm waiting for something. But then again, thats always the hard part isn't it?

    I too have little patience. On the brighter side, you probably get more done.

    i seem to have problems with pateince as well, always crossing boundaries that I should not.
    For example, a woman and I just had a heart to heart in which she expressed to me that our relationship was not over, but she needed time. She never expressed how much time that would be.
    My efforts at trying to mend our relationship have pushed her away, when time may have mended all wounds.
    I recently emailed her in defiance of her request for time. I have made similar mistakes in the past and see this problem as the main stumbling block in my inablilty to create lasting relationships.

    I also have no patience. I like to get things done on time and as soon as I decide that they need to be done. On the other hand people's schedule's don't work around mine, especially when I need help from others. I'd like to learn to have patience. I just don't know how besides the count to 10 method before I get rippin' pissed.
