Do you have a minute?
Closed

There is a saying: “Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” Qualities of a patient person are: 1/ Being able to undergo discomfort without complaining about it. 2/ Not becoming angry easily even if their anger is proportionate to the situation. 3/ Focussing less on themselves and their needs to see the bigger picture.

But why is patience difficult for many of us to find? Experts say it is because of our ‘egocentric predicament,' meaning we tend to care most about our own thoughts and feelings. So, it could be our own self-centeredness that gets in the way.

However, it is possible to develop more patience and it has to do with changing perspective. It could be to practice whenever you are in a difficult situation, small or big, like standing in a long queue at the supermarket or when a friend is insanely slow tying his shoelaces. More concretely, you can scatter coins on the floor and take your time picking them up and placing them neatly in a pile, or you can count out loud slowly for 10 minutes straight.

How about you? When did you last feel impatient?

Or perhaps someone was impatient with you?

My patience was recently tested when I was a patient in hospital - quite a challenge in a pandemic. I'm so grateful to be out now able to enjoy a walk in fresh air. I'm in awe of the wonderful medical and hospital staff but also the other amazing 'patient' patients.
