The Communication Process


Patience in Relating to Each Other


Whoever claimed that "patience is a virtue" was most likely waiting in line for the best things in life and eventually got them. It doesn't indicate that you can achieve what you desire without putting in the effort. When you know how to exercise patience just about properly, it speaks volumes as a virtue.

In today's world, most relationships necessitate the dominating presence of a great deal of patience. When we run out of patience in dealing with minor misunderstandings or arguments in a relationship, we certainly look for an easy way out. Patience is the ultimate key.

We are less forgiving and shrewder than previous generations. We pass harsher judgments on people and situations and make rash decisions. When we have to exhibit kindness, we display apathy, and we never have time to deal with anything contemptuous, so we choose to ignore or sweep things under the rug. All of this develops impatience, which affects our fundamental being and, as a result, our connection.

Losing the Patience

There are a variety of reasons why you may lose patience with your partner on a regular basis.

Patience is crucial in the early stages of any relationship. On the love curve, one person will always be ahead of the other. One is usually unsure or perplexed, while the other is eagerly anticipating the start of their life with you. If you're the one who's waiting, do so with optimism and hope.

Allow the other person to develop a better understanding of the situation and get to where you are. It's always a good idea to be patient at first. Impatience can show you that you haven't thought things through well enough before entering a relationship. Allow yourself and the other person some wiggle room. If you do, love will undoubtedly blossom.

Another cause could be that you're still mending from previous relationships, and the scars you've left behind are interfering with your present one. It's not your fault, yet again. It's natural to have frequent reminders from your past and to act on them in the present. Try letting go of all the baggage you've gathered and focused on healing instead. It should be normal and beneficial to talk to your partner about past anxieties. It aids in your healing, which will undoubtedly bring you a great degree of patience in dealing with the present and educate you to be more forgiving in your relationship.

You and your partner may also lose patience due to your hectic schedules. Time is an ephemeral, overvalued term, and everyone strives to create as much of it as possible. If your professional busy lover is late for a dinner date, learn to accept that it's quite normal. Losing patience will only serve to discourage them from working harder for the future they are attempting to construct with you. If you're patient enough, you'll eventually get all of their time.

Patience in a relationship is also a virtue that may withstand the test of time. Patience does not imply ignoring or brushing under the rug the other person's shortcomings and follies. Patience enables us to communicate constructively about the differences we notice in their demeanors, habits, incompatibilities, or even unpleasant indulgences and to address them without anger or hostility. It just serves to inspire two people to be more open and accepting of one another. Understand why your partner, for example, prefers to go a little too far when it comes to drinking socially.

Ways To Practice Patience


All you have to do is accept them in their current state. Before acting on what they are doing or not doing, you must recognize that a person's core nature cannot be entirely changed and that the only way to make peace with the circumstance is to accept it.


Let it all out! Don't keep it to yourself or you'll turn into a volcano ready to erupt at any moment. Instead of lashing out at each other, you should emote by talking to each other. This way, you'll be able to vent in a timely manner and won't be annoyed by your partner's actions.

Listen to Each Other

Remember that it's you and her vs. the issue, not you against. her. Instead of focusing on the problem, focus on the solution. This will help you be compassionate to her, and listening will move you both closer to a solution.

Allow your partner to be themselves

Let them be, there are things that you'd want to do without anybody poking you or abstaining from it. So, let them be! Just let them be!

Learn to adjust and compromise

You can always expect your partner to adjust and compromise. You need to adjust too as- “it's not always rainbows and butterflies but a compromise that moves us along.”
