Patience is a virtue as compared to its polar opposite the vice—impatience. Patience is self-control, that is, when you stop yourself from eating the leftover cake that has conveniently been left in the fridge by your surprisingly considerate family. Patience is when you try not to lose your temper when a younger sibling callously rips your favorite novel. You may be a lucky person if you are naturally patient person but beware; people may attempt to drive you off the end of your threshold. If unfortunately, patience is not one of your strong suits, then it would be preferable if you inculcate this helpful attribute into your everyday life.
