I am so amazed at how little patience people show. Everyone is always in a hurry. People are too busy to “stop and smell the roses” (per se). Everyone is always moving too fast not slowing down enough to enjoy life or show love for the next person.
Not only has it happened to me, but I’ve seen it happen to others time and time again. I’m talking about how people would rather see a person wreck then to let them merge in while on the roadway. They clearly see you trying to get in, but instead of letting you in they’d rather you run off the road or into something. This is insane and a shame, but it is the truth. Some will cut you off; rushing to get in front of you only to turn off a second later. It’s nuts! Others will tailgate you in thinking it will force you along; not understanding they’re causing unnecessary risk to their life as well as yours, because they don’t know if you will have to make a sudden stop or not. People; it’s not that serious! Slow it down, if not it could cost something you’re not ready to pay; like a life, which very well may be your own.
At stores, I’ve seen people throw tantrums like little kids, because they have to wait in line. If you don’t want to wait in line take your butt home and come back another day. Otherwise, you’re not special, you have to wait your turn like everyone else. it won’t kill you! Stop all of the cursing and fighting, it’s not worth it.
So many claim to love God, etc. etc, but they don’t want to wait on Him to work. They pray, but they don’t want to tarry. They want their prayers to manifest right away. It doesn’t work like that. Pray, do your part, and then sit down, be quiet, and know that God is Lord! If you don’t trust Him to do it, why pray?
Some parents have no patience with their children. They won’t sit down and help them with their homework, because they won’t make the time nor do they have the patience to do so. Too many of you yell and scream without understanding the affects of your actions on your children. Learn patience with your children, if you don’t you will teach them to be impatient with others. Not only concerning homework, some parents are simply impatient with their children and it’s absolutely wrong.
Some of you are impatient with your significant others and you treat them as if they’re your children. This isn’t right. Stop being complacent and taking your significant others for granted. Be patient, kind, and gentle to them just as you would want them to be to you. To do otherwise causes friction in relationships.
Many of you give up on yourselves when things don’t go as planned or when things seem to take a long time to come together. You must stop trying to rush things. This is why so many things fail for people (relationships, all types of goals, etc). If you have a passion/goal, be patient and never ever give up on you. There will be enough people around you to do that to you, never do it to yourself.
The moral to this post is; learn patience. You only have one life to live slow down and enjoy it. Trust God and know that He is who He say that He is. Time is flying on it’s own, so please learn patience. Learn to believe in yourself and never give up on you. Show patience, love and kindness towards others.
