Have patience with all things, But, first of all with yourself. Patience is not simply the ability to wait – it’s how we behave while we’re waiting.Its all our attitude which makes the situation worse or pleasure….If you think about the difficult side of the problem your all imagination goes on that way and the journey becomes more difficult

I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life but if you lose your trust the problems are the main hero of your life….you never get out of it.

Sometimes you need patience to deal with circumstances that are beyond your control. These are your “life hassles.” Something as trivial as getting stuck in a traffic line, for instance, or waiting for a computer program to load.

Impatience has its roots in frustration. It’s a feeling of rising stress that starts when you feel that your needs and wishes are being ignored. In a modern environment where we’re accustomed to instant communication and immediate access to data, it’s a growing problem. But recognizing the warning signs can help you to prevent impatience from taking hold.Like if you text someone and he read your message and did’nt reply at that time…..and you watching him online……whats your state of mind at that moment…think…mind is thinking bla bla bla….which is not even the reality….

Practicing empathy  can also enable you to defuse your impatience. Give the other person your full attention, and try to see beyond your own frustrations by imagining yourself in the other person’s position.

Remind yourself that impatience rarely has a positive effect – in fact, it may even interfere with the person’s ability to perform. Impatience will likely generate more conflict and stress, which will be counterproductive.

Although some people are naturally patient, the rest of us need to practice, for it to become a habit. Becoming more patient won’t happen overnight, but persistence can pay off.

By being patient, you will become a more peaceful, empathetic and kind human over time, and also, with a clearer mind, you can start to make better and rational decisions.

Being patient involves slowing down, understanding where others are coming from, and making a rational plan.

Becoming more patient doesn’t mean you are throwing emotions out the window – it just means that there are a time and place for certain emotions, and a time and place for being level-headed.

One example here is with training to get in shape.

Did you know your body actually grows when you are resting, rather than when you are in the gym?

Listening to your body and resting is sometimes the optimal way to proceed. If you are hurting, pushing to get one more workout in before the week ends might actually do the opposite of healing.

In a similar way, giving space to others when they aren’t living up to their responsibilities or doing what you want can work.
By giving space, you allow time to heal your frustrations, give the other person time to think, and after a while, you can revisit where you are going.

If you can’t change your situation, the best thing you can do is change your perspective on it. Ask yourself to find something positive about where you are right now and focus on that instead of your impatience. It might be hard at first–like a lot of negative emotions, impatience can make you feel good and powerful in the moment–but forcing yourself to focus on the positive will make you feel much better in the long run.

Everyone comes up against obstacles in their lives that seem impossible to overcome. Cultivating your self-confidence will help you realize that you’re smart and strong enough to find ways around these obstacles, no matter how impatient or upset you might feel.
