Patience is a Skill

What can you gain by taking it slower and developing patience?

Hi! It’s Jasmyne with Relate Family Therapy in Centennial, Colorado. Today I want to talk about being patient. We often don’t recognize patience as a skill. Sometimes people think that what they need they need now. Our society is built on that – advertising… Just watching what other people get around you and seeing the immediacy of your need is very telling. We are built on a world of people that need things now in order to better their lives. But what if being better sometimes comes from being patient? Being able to say that you’re working toward something, and earning it, and taking the time to get there, and feeling okay with where you are before you do is that sense that patience has worth. Patience can contribute to so many successes in our lives, and the timing just might not be where we want it to be, but we will get there if we work toward it and we set ourselves up for the goal. Being patient. It doesn’t mean you’re lazy. It doesn’t mean you aren’t doing what you need to do in order to achieve something. It just means that you’re still working on it. You’re taking the time that you need to or have to in order to get there. That time is valuable. That time has worth. You aren’t making yourself worse off for it. You’re being patient, and when you do get there, that success will be just as sweet.
