Feeling Impatient Lately

Written by Jaqueline Dawes

When somebody else cannot 'get it' like you do, the feeling of frustration rises and so does the stress and anxiety. Taking time to teach somebody something or to explain something sufficiently so that another person can actually understand what it is you are really saying takes lots of patience. The world of instantaneity has no empathy for processing and it's a matter of time until email falls into extinction as texting moves into first communication place.

Impatience can really work against your best interests as the impatient need can impulsively engender making quick shallow choices. These can come with a hefty impact, losing friends, money, even family.

You might notice that impatience and chronic procrastination often go together. Some say it’s because impatient people do not have the patience needed to bring tasks that might be time consuming to a conclusion. This, of course, leads to more frustration as often paperwork is postponed indefinitely.

The ability to be more patient is actually something you could improve on if you wanted to with a little effort. It's time to 'slow down and smell the roses'.

First thing to know is what makes you feel triggered. If you know what it is then you might to preplan for it. Maybe it’s time to be more realistic in what you expect. I read somebody say, time moves at the speed of time not at the speed of your expectations.

Try to stop multitasking and do one thing at a time. The stress that comes from having too many things to do at the same time will eat away at any patience you might have.

If you want better health, better friends and better decisions; take time to process through things carefully so you make decisions you will not regret later.
