If things are not going your way, you must learn to be patient. It’s important to see things and situations in a positive light to make your life less stressful. Patience is a virtue because it requires self-control. It requires you to have the insight to think about other people and their happiness. Patience helps remind you that you are not always in control and you can’t always have control, so have faith and replace anxiousness with prayer.
When it comes to family, patience is necessary. It is a key part to the foundation of a happy childhood. All relationships need time and patience. When we are patient, we are a better person. We give ourselves time to choose how to respond to a situation, rather than getting emotionally out of control.
If you are trying to bring more patience into your life, realize that none of us can control everything. Things happen. Things are going to happen that change our plans, don’t be surprised by them, actually expect them to occur, and allow extra time for changes that might occur.
One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life. ~ Chinese Proverb ~
