Do you often hear someone saying, ‘I wish I had such a level of patience as you’, or ‘you’re very a patient person’ and all?

How To Keep Your Patience When You’re Losing It?
When you feel connected to most situations above and accept that you can keep yourself focused, such are signs that you are a patient person by nature.
While it all depends from person to person and situation to situation.
Still, there comes a time when no matter how patient a person you are, you feel that you’re reaching your limits.
And, you want to let the frustration out.
When that happens, notice whether you’re striving for perfection or not.
Check if you’re expecting too much from the situation or someone.
If so, you need to lower your expectations from others and outside factors. On such things, we have no control.
If after doing so may attempt, you still don’t get what you deserve, that means it’s time to change your plan.
Keep testing with new approaches or you can also need to lower your goals, maybe you’re being too ambitious and set goals too high.
Sometimes, it’s also a good idea to get your frustration out, instead of pressuring yourself to be patient.
Same way, it’s also good to set your boundaries clear for those who bother you to see how patient person you are or can be.
