Patience is loving others even when they disappoint you and you don't understand them. It's knowing how to let go and accept others as they are and forgive them for things they have done. Patience is loving yourself and giving yourself time to grow; it's doing things that keep you healthy and happy, and it's knowing that you deserve the best in life and are willing to work for it, no matter how long it takes.
Patience is being willing to face whatever challenges life gives you, realizing that life has also given you the strength and courage to endure and deal with each challenge.
