Actively cultivating patience seems impossible for me in this moment. Everything in my life feels hopeless. I feel like I ruin everything, one hundred percent of the time. I know that learning to be patient with others would GREATLY improve all of my relationships, not just intimate ones. My goal for this day is to acknowledge that I am being impatient, immerse myself in the annoyance, and use breathing to get through the moment, no matter how long the moment may be. I really liked “patience is not passivity”. Felt like an aha moment for me.
