One of the things we have been dealing with, especially myself , is struggling to be patient. We have to look at both sides on this particular issue, i mean, personally i know patience and prayer is key to most of our problems , but holding on to patience is the major problem.
After some deep thoughts i have been having for quite sometime, i realised that i or (we) have been trying to find our solutions at the wrong place. Now what do i mean? I mean of course the problem lies within us, but the real problem is that we don’t want to let go of the things that have have been causing or that have caused so much damage to our lives. We are just not yet ready. Now, this is the reason why to have patience at the first place is like trying to hold burning ashes with our bare hands, its almost impossible.
Look, the best way to tackle most of these problems is by analysing the major problem, try to break it down to small problems and try to solve these smaller problems bit by bit until you attack the major problem. Not only will you be solving the biggest problems in your life, but also you will be practising patience, aha! killing two birds with one stone. Once you get the hang of it, even future problems, will be easier for you to handle because patience is not something you easily lose when you attain it. I personally believe it’s a choice to lose patience upon something once you get the hang of it.
One of the most important things to remember is that nothing is permanent in this world, everything has its own expiry date, thus, problems come and go so don’t lose hope yet. I have seen people who struggled half of their lives and at the end they became so successful that if you wouldn’t have known them at first, you wouldn’t have believed that they once struggled in life. Now how did this happen? It’s because they kept on holding on to their hopes, patience and having in mind that problems come and problems also disappear eventually. This is what i have observed, and i still have hope, so if i can have hope at least, then why can’t you have it too?
All i am saying is , Patience, Prayer, Hope, once you master these in your life, then everything else will start falling into the right place. It is hard to accomplish all these things especially with our own personal problems, big or small, but you never know till unless you try.
It’s worth a try…
