When we talk about patience, we generally think that it is the quality of being stable, calm, and not get angry when the situation is not favorable or difficult for that particular time or longer period. But I think patience is more than that, It is not just a bookish definition but it is the way of living life, it is the way of avoiding any unwanted conflicts, it is the way by which we can make our lives easy because of peace in mind.
We all face problems in our day-to-day life, personal life, and professional life. Sometimes we react to situations aggressively and sometimes we behave more calmly, but the thing is do we have the patience to survive the adverse conditions/situations in our life. I think most people don’t have this quality. The whole world is suffering from many problems. When we talk about problems they can be a geographical specific or common problem for all people around the globe. A common problem we are facing in the current situation is terrorism, black marketing, drugs addiction, human trafficking but apart from that the whole world is suffering from a “LACK OF PATIENCE”. Due to this lack of patience, the whole world suffers a lot. Most people find themselves in conflict because of ego clashes, high temperament but the most important thing for rising conflict is again lack of patience. When one person started the heated conversation the other person may show his patience but up to a limit and after the limit is crossed when he also started lacking in patience he can reply first-person angrily and here is the start of the conflict.
Now, the urge to suppress other person and become the winner of argument, both will try their level best by shouting in loud voice or by any other means. In this procedure, they may say those things which can hurt another person’s sentiments or ego which will raise the conflict further and there is a chance of physical fight as well. This situation of a physical fight can easily be avoided if one of the two persons showed patience and stopped arguing when he saw that the other person is not enjoying this conversation. After some time another person will also realize his mistake and stopped whatever they are arguing for. Patience always plays a vital role in resolving conflicts. It is also a key to success because when you get mental peace your capacity to work is also increased.
We need to learn patience from women. Women face many troubles in life as compared to men. She faces work pressure (if she’s a working woman), societal pressure, family pressure, and many more. She has to take care of all the work at home and all the family members as well. She needs to do day-to-day work like bringing vegetables, cook food, cleanliness, washing clothes, and many other things. We can see the amount of work she needs to do on daily basis. What if she doesn’t have patience and refuses to do work? Everyone’s life will be disturbed and no one can concentrate on his or her work. The efficiency of all the members will go down and which will ultimately result in loss of health which includes mental and physical health and economic loss. Even when a woman lost her patience, she came back to normalcy quickly because she know that the family is depends on her. So, the high-level patience of women is playing a vital role in maintaining peace in the home.
Patience is need of the hour. This is one of the important things which can improve relations and bring peace and harmony to society. Patience can also help in bringing down the crime rate which will help further in making society; city, state, and nation feel safer to live. When we say that we need patience in people around the globe it doesn’t mean we need to make everyone full of patience because if only 50% of people became high in patience it means 1 out of 2 people is good in patience and the conflict will not arise. Patience can make things a lot easier and that is why we need to show it in dealing with our day-to-day life problems.
