I hate this word. I hate seeing it, I hate hearing it, "have patience" or the usual "be patient". The amount of patience I've had to force myself into to get through the bullshit I've gone through in my life since I was a child. As an adult, I'm worn out by it. I just don't care for it some days because I've done it to death for so long. How much patience can one have? When are my blessings going to come? I'm not a bad person, I pretty much mind my business and stay out of trouble. I don't bother anyone. Why me? Why?

Dear Tiredbuttrying,
I know it seems unfair to be given such a hard life. I have literally been tortured in my life. Yes, it seems like we have to make a career out of being patient.

I know how you feel about patience. It's like people say be patient and you feel inside that you have been more than patient and nothing is happening. I'm there now. I've been wanting to do certain things and it's just not happening for me right now. It brings a lot of frustration. But there is still hope for you and for me. You are doing a good job to keep pushing and not giving up. Have you thought about what you are being patient for? Maybe write down what it is you want to do and then write out a plan on how to get there. If you need help coping with what you have been through, maybe consider professional counseling. They may be able to help you with some coping strategies. Things can be tough but there is still hope when we don't give up. Keep pushing....You are in my thoughts.
