Patience.

Post by crow » Tue Oct 27, 2015 7:56 am

All it takes is one...
People flee in horror, having never expected such a thing.
Outraged, hurt, upset, resentful.
We had such peace and all was well, and now...

Such is human life, through all of history.
With patience, balance is restored.
Maybe not as quickly as one might prefer, but in its own time.
How patient are you?

I'm can be very patient at times, especially when it comes to the people I love, but at the same time I can be very impatient when I'm dealing with myself or third parties

People have generally considered me to be impatient and intolerant, which encourages me to be impatient and intolerant.
What they don't know is how long I have been patient and tolerant while they remained completely unaware that I was being patient and tolerant.

T'was not always so, though. Patience and tolerance were not qualities I was born with.
The juiciest rewards are the ones hardest worked for.

Few will know your best qualities.
But you will know them.

The greatest single obstacle people face is over-reliance on the opinions of others.
Nobody is better equipped to evaluate you, than you.
Among the many secrets of life, this is one of the most useful.

Paradoxically, the mentally-ill are incapable of listening to anybody else but themselves.
What makes them ill, is that they aren't listening to themselves, at all, but to their egos, instead.
