The word patience is derived from words meaning to tolerate adversity, misfortune, and suffering with calm endurance, and today it generally refers to the capacity to remain calm while waiting for something to begin or to end.
The persistent lack of patience can lead to anxiety, anger, and overall dissatisfaction with life, because the tasks in front of you are viewed as merely chores to complete rather than as experiences to be enjoyed, discouraging you from truly being present, while also straining your relationships with family, friends, and co-workers.
