Developing Patience is Difficult: Nobody Likes to Wait

One of the most difficult things for me to deal with in life is waiting. I’m probably not alone in this, but waiting for basically anything just puts me into a bad mood. I find it helps sometimes to take a step back from what is going on, and ask myself, “Why are you getting upset?”. I tend to realize that whatever is upsetting me is usually trivial and mostly meaningless when put into the larger picture. Sometimes I get upset even after asking that though depending on what has been going on that particular day.

I read a post recently titled, “Surviving the Wait”, and I thought it was a good post for people who hate waiting (like me). If you have a hard time coping with waiting, I highly recommend reading this article. Keep in mind a quote that you may have heard before, “God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith. but it’s worth the wait.”
