Patience Revisited

In Self Improvement, Short Thoughts, Stoicism

Having patience is generally seen as a positive trait, although there are some that would argue that having too much patience allows others to take advantage of you.

While this may certainly be true, the advantages of having enough patience far outweigh the disadvantages of having too much patience.
I’ve experienced cases where people who I respect deeply are turned into animals because of something as simple as a waiter forgetting to bring their mango juice at a coffee shop.
Don’t be an animal, be a human being and use your rational facilities to cultivate patience, because most things in life are not worth getting worked up about.
