Just have a lil patience.......

“Have a lil patience” – how often have we heard it? How astoundingly easy it seems but when I think deeper and dig myself and people around me and their lives to understand it, I sometimes fail to understand its true worth. Patience is one word which is on the lips of everyone but in the heart of only a few. When I think about myself in this context, I too find myself amongst the pupils attending patience classes, trying to master one of my subjects of life but often fail in my own eyes.

Patience is a war with your own self, a tiresome brainstorming session with your own values, beliefs and thoughts in difficult circumstances. Patience is the art of facing difficulties especially long term with endurance without losing your head or getting upset or disturbed. Many people feel they have been keeping it and when you actually peep into their soul, you find a big hole in it from where patience is leaking a great deal. Yeah it takes a long time and great deal of patience to learn patience. At times you will find yourself sitting on the fire and spectators enjoying the show and simultaneously scoring you on your patience. It seems so easy to say “be patient”, but always ask somebody who has been practicing it since ages but has broken it recently. All teachings, learnings and practicing just vanish in a split second.
Even the rocks near a river keep patience but slowly turn into soil with constant hits. “When I keep it you lose it, when you keep it I panic, when we both keep it we lose time and when none of us keep it we lose a relation”. All we still want and crave for is patience. Being like a rock, waiting for our temperaments to get retarded, we keep ourselves patient. Sometimes we lose it because of our weaknesses and some times we lose it with lots of interferences in our lives. We sometimes want to be heard and understood and, we lose it because we get consoling words and possible solutions without being understood. Not everything can be solved today, but can be taken care of and kept in for tomorrow. We need to have patience. We lose it with difference in attitudes and natures and understandings. We lose it when people are judgmental, with perhaps, their limited knowledge of facts and figures.

I was discussing the term “Patience” with a friend yesterday. And I have been told that we lose it because we think we are mature, when we are not in certain cases. True!! And if we look at it with another perspective, we can also say it might be possible that other person is not mature enough to understand our wants and needs. We lose it when we are being doubted for our decisions about our lives, when people themselves hate others intervening in theirs.

Sometimes our constant failures compel us to surrender ourselves and our so called patience, be it failures in relationships or careers. So keeping patience with broad thinking is easy, but keeping patience otherwise is a tough game to play. Too much of criticism and too much of optimism kills patience. And with the so called loss of patience, some things like anger, frustration, detachment and violence shine and love, understanding, trust vanish. Elongated practice of Patience kills patience. Being silent is the only way out to fight impatience and being joyful is the only key to have a healthy and stable mind when you are practicing patience. Live it in your way. Be patient to you, even if it’s a war with yourself, just try to win it. And when you can’t, give your black emotions out and keep patience again!! :-)

  4. Shed a tear 'cause I'm missing you
    I'm still alright to smile
    Girl, I think about you every day now
    Was a time when I wasn't sure
    But you set my mind at ease
    There is no doubt you're in my heart now
    Said woman take it slow
    It'll work itself out fine
    All we need is just a little patience
    Said sugar make it slow
    And we'll come together fine
    All we need is just a little patience
    (inhale) Patience...
    Ooh, oh, yeah

    Sit here on the stairs
    'Cause I'd rather be alone
    If I can't have you right now, I'll wait dear
    Sometimes, I get so tense
    But I can't speed up the time
    But you know, love, there's one more thing to consider
    Said woman take it slow
    Things will be just fine
    You and I'll just use a little patience
    Said sugar take the time
    'Cause the lights are shining bright
    You and I've got what it takes to make it
    We won't fake it, Oh never break it
    'Cause I can't take it

    ...little patience, mm yeah, ooh yeah,
    Need a little patience, yeah
    Just a little patience, yeah
    Some more pati... (ence, yeah)
    I've been walking these streets at night
    Just trying to get it right (Need some patience, yeah)
    It's hard to see with so many around
    You know I don't like being stuck in a crowd (Could use some patience, yeah)
    And the streets don't change but maybe the name
    I ain't got time for the game
    'Cause I need you (Patience, yeah)
    Yeah, yeah well I need you
    Oh, I need you (Take some patience)
    Whoa, I need you (Just a little patience is all we need)
    Ooh, this ti- me....

  5. a song by gnr called patience

  6. patience to a certain extent is fine..a little patience can ease our worries..but too much patience sends u in a latent phase which in this century can be harmful..we have a short life to live..expect and keep patience but then the other times u have to go for it..waiting wont do...

  7. yepp. no1 can practice too much patience. We all have a melting point.. and practicing patience for too long can paralyze our emotions and our thoughts.. So no point in waiting!! :)

  8. Actually,it is d only virtue, which can compensate for all materialistic pleasures that life has to offer! Infact, for poor, it is a substitute for 2-meals-a-day!

    It is the last resort for a person of values, when he doesn't gets what he wants.

  9. Patience is not from mouth or hands it is a quality that is derived from the heart.


Thankyou for your feedback :)
