It is often said that patience is a virtue. I think it is essential in life. People without patience do not make the logical choices and decisions in their lives. The end results are never good. People who cannot hold their temper often do negative things such as displaying road rage, violence, end up losing their jobs and more. It is essential to basically learn how to be quiet. For example, you are in the workplace and your workmate is arguing with you possibly about a project you have finished. Holding your temper will probably not be easy. The smart move is to remove yourself from the project and walk away. If he or she follows you head to the the manager’s or supervisor’s office. Part of the problem with domestic violence is that the person doing the harming cannot keep their temper and do not understand the value of the other person. Think about road rage. The loss of patience has often ended up with bodily harm, accidents that hurt others who are innocent in the whole event, and severe damage to vehicles. It also delays traffic which makes people late for work, doctor’s appointments, school, college, etc. The old count to ten doesn’t always work, but people really need to stop and think and deep breathe to get a handle on themselves. In the Good Gus series, Bad Bart does have a temper tantrum but it is resolved without harsh words or violence, but rather calm rational speaking by Sheriff Gus.
