The problem with people having patience with you is that you’ll never know when it’s going to end; so you’re constantly on tenterhooks searching for signs of the patience waning and the impatience waxing. No doubt if the person is a newcomer to the land of patience they’ll suddenly jerk out of it giving you a jolt out of the blue too. There won’t be any nice warning signs at all. That’s the scary part: the Jekyll and Hyde feel.
As for any times impatience is a virtue? Apparently a short burst of stress helps to boost the immune system! And also the adrenalin rush can push people to achieve higher, more and faster – just like in competitive sports. People don’t know what they can do until they reach the brink of the precipice and are forced to make that decision without too much over-thought and second-guessing: they just grab the bull by the horns and run with the decisions. However, impatience will lead to chronic stress amongst those that surround you and chronic stress not only impairs the immune system but is also reponsible for many ailments. I won’t be surprised if people start to become allergic or even systemically intolerant of stress in the near future!! *tongue-firmly-in-cheek*
