Being patient is one of the
most important qualities required in any field in work
or school, play, being a parent, child, sibling etc.
We all go through different
developmental stages in our lives. We first played a
role of a new born baby then past through childhood,
adolescence, adulthood and finally old age. Patience is
required in all these stages. Babies have the least
patience; they need immediate gratification of things
like when they cry they need to be fed immediately.
Children similarly throw tantrums if they want a certain
toy to play with. Patience is not inherent but learnt.
Parents can be the ideal role model for their children.
It is through observing people that one learns to be
patient. Children lack patience they want to satisfy or
want immediate gratification of things. They throw
tantrums because they want a chocolate immediately its
only in time do we learn to become patient because we
understand that if a 12 yr old boy screams and kicks it
is socially disapproved behavior in society. There fore
we learn to be patient. Why is it important to be
patient? Patience is a virtue. Through patience we
learn the most important thing of not hasting up,
thinking clearly about things.
When people fight they are
angry they say few things and things get worse, but
being patiently listening and then talking out the
problem helps in more ways than one. Be it a parent
talking to his son or a husband and wife fighting it is
important that one is patient and gives the other a
patient ear and then sort out the problem.
In studies its important to patiently sit
with your books give your self time to understand your
subjects instead of rushing through everything and not
remembering anything at the end of it, rushing through
your cooking or marketing will result in you forgetting
important ingredients or important things that you
require for cooking or marketing. Therefore patience is
most essential and since it’s not an inherent trait it
has to be developed.
