If any of you know me, you would know that I’m not very patient, and don’t do to well with pain -- but one thing I am, is persistent. Usually if you have one of these characteristics you can overcome a lot, but how do you teach yourself to overcome & conquer the hard times. My first lesson, is evaluate the situation. So I decided to look up the definition of all three.
Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances. Patience is the level of endurance one's character can take before negativity.
To Persist is to continue steadfastly or firmly in some state, purpose, course of action, especially in spite of opposition.
Pain, is an unpleasant sensation often associated with damage to the body.
So primarily you should evaluate your situation, and then create a personal plan of how you will overcome the situation. By creating a plan you are actually holding yourself accountable to something & this will help you take the steps forward one day at a time to recovery & success.
