Being a Patient is hard work. And it's not a skill that I excel at, by any means.
Well, I kind of suck at it, actually.
Patience is something that I do not have by nature. I want to do everything NOW, while I still remember what it is I want to do. I want to do it NOW, before I get distracted. I want to do it NOW, while the opportunity is ripe. I want to do it NOW, before it gets snatched away. I want to do it NOW, while I still can.
So this whole healing thing is not a good fit for me. Being waited on hand and foot is sort of amusing, for about ten minutes - and then it gets frustrating to wait for someone else to do it. It gets tempting to nag at people about HOW to do it... and eventually the compulsion is too much for my limited self-control, and I just have to do it myself.
Are there lessons for this sort of thing? Or am I just doomed to sit at the back of the class?
