We have always been told by almost everyone, "just be patient." Why is this simple piece of advice so extremely difficult to follow and understand? We aren't patient beings. We want thing when we want it and we want them NOW. We want change with ourselves immediately. We see a problem with ourselves and immediately want to change it. This is an incredible gift we have the ability to do, but it is also extremely harming to us. We have to be patient with ourselves. With patience comes stability and understanding. Within patience we can find love for ourselves and our growth. If we were able to change instantaneously than we couldn't be grateful for anything. So be patient with yourself today and the people you're surrounded by. Long-lasting and life-changing growth comes with patience. Love yourself today and be kind with yourself!
