Patience is an important part of all relationships. There are going to be times when you need to be patient with people, and if you're not, you might lose that person’s trust and friendship.

Key Points:

  • Patience is enduring, often under difficult circumstances, and hopefully without complaining.
  • We need to have patience with people and with difficult circumstances in life. Things don’t always work out on our timeline or the way we want.
  • Grow patience in your life by being aware of what causes you to be impatient, find the positives in those situations and be okay with feeling uncomfortable from time to time.

Quote This:

“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.”- Leo Tolstoy
