Patience is often bitter but its fruits are sweet – Swami Sukhabodhananda On Impatience

Patience is often bitter but its fruits are sweet. Impatience is waiting with worry.
Unhappy homes are built of blocks of impatience. Impatience essentially is an inability to accept things as they are. Impatience affects all – male and female, young and old.
Impatience works like a poison that gets into a living system. It kills the system slowly and secretly from within. The victim realizes its true nature only after it is too late to do anything about it.
Impatience is so dangerous in its effects that it twists the perspectives of its victims long before it leads them to total destruction. Negative attitudes result directly from impatience. Pessimism and Skepticism are immediate descendants of impatience.
Life abounds in sorrows, mistakes and missed chances. However, with a slight shift in perspective from that of impatience to patience, we will get a totally different picture.
