Walang Pasensiya, No Patience

By Chiqui Raveloski

What has happened to taking time to get things done instead of being in a hurry to get the same result at the end? Like, driving within a speed limit and an impatient driver "tail gates", then passes, only to get to the same stop light earlier?

"Walang pasensiya, palaging nagmamadali!", simply no patience and always in a hurry! This behavior has gotten so rampant to the point of society losing touch of one's self. People have gotten "linked" to their favorite electronic gadget (s), dependent on its "features", and merely forgetiing one's self virtues.

Patience is a virtue. It makes better persons in the long run, Patience has no room for "instant gratification"  It is by all means  to tolerate delay, and  exercising  self control. With this in mind, results of "walang pasensiya", and "instant gratification" are seen in the patients in the hospitals.

People want to lose weight right away, takes the popular diet pills, and ends up in the hospital with crazy heart rhythms. There are some who choose the gastric bypass, and ends up with intractable nausea, vomiting and sometimes diarrhea. For many, merely giving up a new healthy Type 2 diabetes life style, to iimprove one's mind and body, results to kidney damage, stroke, or leg (s) amputation. Unfortunately, to some death cannot come any quicker, like "walang pasensiya".

The  introduction to this blog cannot be further from the truth as it does confirm  that "Tail gaters" do get to the stop light earlier than the ones who stop and smell the roses .
