Patience is noble, but it's most useful for those who have time, specifically time to suffer. More important than patience - in my opinion - is the ability to allow and accept. In many cases a feeling of impatience is not actually a sign of entitlement or arrogance, but a sign that the thing you are waiting for isn't worth the wait (to you). An unusual wait time may also be a sign that something is wrong, specifically, what you thought you were about to experience is not what you are about to experience.A great example of this would...
Something is not better than nothing. Something does not imply something good, that is best for you, beneficial or empowering. Something can be something bad, something limiting, distracting, or detrimental to you or your self esteem. Everytime you allow yourself to rest in an unideal situation you condition the mind to identify that situation as your new normal; and the mind begins to adapt. Rebuilding your self-esteem after allowing yourself to experience less than you deserve - without putting up a fight - is one of the hardest tasks we will ever undergo as humans. Not only would you have...
Often enough, women curve me for not wanting to jump into a relationship, then they get with a [insert urban expletive for miscellaneous guy] who derails their life.

When you understand that being loved...
Faith is the crops, Doubt is the weeds. Think about that for a moment. That is an interesting and powerful metaphor which depicts what I would now like to call our mental agriculture. Your faith is your crop; the idea you seek to manifest. Your doubt is your weed; the idea which threatens the growth of that which you seek to manifest.This is more than a metaphor, this is Nature speaking directly to us. A weed is not a specific plant, just as a doubt is not a specific thought. A weed--as defined by wikipedia--is a plant considered undesirable...
I'm known to compliment and criticize in the same breath. It's confusing for some and I can understand their frustration - it's the myth of good and bad. We are taught that there are good people and bad people (not people with good and bad qualities, who make both good and bad decisions). We are taught that good things happen and bad things happen, when in reality your bad fortune is another person's good fortune. If you lose money in the street someone finds money in the street. It is a seemingly more complex way of looking at...
