Patience for ages
It's hard for me to imagine myself practicing patience...forever. It's hard for me to imagine myself even being patient right after I stop focusing/writing about patience in this series of posts.
This is where some rational, inner self-talk comes in.
I have to rationally tell myself that I'm going to always need patience because there are ALWAYS going to be things I really want, that I don't have in that moment yet. Lots of things.
I have to rationally tell myself that I want to be patient in the future because patience is a virtue, a good trait. I want to be good. And along with that, there are many, many positive things that come from being patient.
It's basically just a lot of talking to myself.
