Patience Is A Virtue

Sometimes things aren’t clear right away. That’s where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead.

-Mary Pierce

One of the biggest things I struggle with in life is patience. Friends and family of mine are sure to agree with that. I try my best to work on it, but we all have our flaws and impatience is one of mine. 

Being impatient brings no good into your life, though. It only makes way for worry and anxiety (Both of which I’m a frequent victim of.)  

Living with chronic pain makes it harder for me to be patient. I don’t want to wait for answers. I don’t want to wait for relief. I don’t want to wait to see if the next day I’ll feel well enough to get off the couch. But that’s all we really can do, isn’t it? Wait. So we can either wait with patience, and try to get peace of mind or we can wait impatiently, only adding unnecessary stress to our stressful lives. 

This quote I put up above speaks to me because we can never be clear why something is happening in our lives. We don’t know why we are put through the struggles thrown our way, but instead of worrying about finding the answers we need to find patience and perseverance to see where we will end up after the storm ends. 

So each and every day I tell myself to practice patience. We will end up where we are meant to be, we just have to have faith and be patient until that time comes. 
what do you do in order to remain patient when you aren’t seeing results from suggested medicines, methods or suggestions provided by doctors?
