All About Me
PatiencePatience--is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on annoyance/anger in a negative way; or exhibiting forbearance when under strain, especially when faced with longer-term difficulties. Patience is the level of endurance one can take before negativity. It is also used to refer to the character trait of being steadfast.
I was encouraged when I studied the definition of patience. Sometimes I feel annoyance or anger while waiting but since I do not act upon those feelings by definition I am patient. I try and distract myself by reading or thinking of plans I am making, or recall past pleasant events. Not only does this keep me in a better frame of mind, but it also makes the time pass quickly.
