grub + travels + perspectives

SoulPancake Sunday

I'm a very patient person and I guess, waiting is one of my strengths. Well, yes, I also consider it a weakness because sometimes, it comes to a point that I become passive about some things in my life.

So how long am I willing to wait? It depends on a lot of things.

Material things? There are times I am a trigger happy person and I get very impulsive when I want something so bad. For those things that I know need time and hard work before I achieve it like work/employment, of course, I follow the natural course of things. A ride to work? I would definitely wait for my preferred method of transportation. I do wait, I don't mind most of the time. My food to get served? I can wait.

For everything else, I am willing to wait more than I should. See changes in a person? I think sometimes I have the savior complex. Sometimes, I think I am different and that I could actually change a person. Yes, I am very wrong. I patiently wait for people to change, thinking that how I treat or be with them can actually change their ways eventually. I painstakingly wait for them to see that I am here, I am good for them and hope that somehow they'll choose me.

I know it sickens some of my friends how I am able to withstand everything because I am waiting for change so I can get what I deserve.

I know some of my friends feel melancholic for me because beneath everything, somehow, I am still waiting.

I can wait for the least and most deserving people.

“I’ve learned that waiting is the most difficult bit, and I want to get used to the feeling, knowing that you’re with me, even when you’re not by my side.”

― Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
