    Whenever my favourite bands

    or singers, release new albums, I don't listen to it at once or get involved with the singles instantly. I wait for people to get sick of it first because I don't like singing it with people who are only into it because it's trending. POINT: Good music is good in any era, when...

    I'm extremely patient.

    I sit around and wait for things to change. I give people so many chances and I always give them more than I should. I catch myself consistently waiting on people to change and it isn't happening a lot lately. I wait for people to be better because for some reason I believe...

    I have one type of patience in abundance.

    Out of respect for others, born human shaped different. diversity keeps us strong. Those who think different cast great light into each others lives should they each choose to see it. Another type I lack. If I've made up my mind I want something then I want it. And now. I get...

    I find it very tempting to reply to an email in

    anger sometimes. Especially to dumbasses who have the nerve to point out in email that we should have a fallback procedure for a system failure. This is true, but that doesn't take away the fact that your system failed, and instead of you trying to fix it, I had to chase you...

    Some people on here really need to learn to be

    patient. Just because someone may not reply fast doesn't mean their wasting your time or ignoring you. People on here do have lives, other things to do, and other people to talk to. Just because your attention may be fully on one person doesn't mean they have to give you theirs...

    Always the Most Patient

    I have always been the most patient member of my family. I learned from a young age that 'good things come to those who wait'. My family has always been fairly poor, so whenever I wanted anything (no matter how small), I knew I would have to wait a long time before I would be...

    More Than Some

    I believe that I have more patience than most people I know. With the kids, with friends, with coworkers and mostly with the X. I just know that we all have our issues and may need time to get through things or do tasks or even be human.

    I am amazed at how easy it is

    for others to be angry. I have a lot of patience and am known for my patience so maybe that is why I don't get mad at the petty things. I have always been known for high levels of patience, love, joy, self-control, wanting to help others, etc. I saw a Dear Abby letter and...
