As a little kid, about 20 years ago or more, I was already learning about patience. My beloved Mom and Dad taught me how to be patient by not giving me right away whatever I asked for. Especially the fancy and unnecessary ones.
They said that if I wanted to have them, I have to save some money and buy them with the saving. Knowing that their budget was limited (yes, as a child I already knew the value of money and the essence of budgeting), I couldn’t do anything but doing what they told me to.
I learned not to indulge my self too much. I learned the value of patience.
Now, my friends keep saying that I’m a patient kind of person. In one thing, I might be. But, I also get uncontrolled easily, emotionally. I get outraged easily, I get sad easily, I get happy easily. So, I consider my self as an impatient person because being patient also means that you have good control over yourself—which I don’t.
I still need extra amount of patience to survive in this
crazy world. Should you have extra of it, would you please share a LITTLE bit with me?
