14 Patience Quotes For When Your Persistence Is Being Tested | The Health Sessions

There’s nothing like chronic illness to put your patience to the test. When you become sick, you spend a lot of time waiting – waiting to figure out what’s wrong with you, waiting for treatment options, waiting to find a new ‘normal’ again. There are no quick fixes or overnight cures.

And all the while, your illness doesn’t take a break. That’s the big difference between getting worked up over being stuck in traffic or other irritating situations – you can’t escape your own body and mind.

The urban dictionary defines patience as ‘the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.’ But in a world of instant gratification, being patient is slowly becoming an old-fashioned virtue.

Take a look at these 14 patience quotes to help you hang in there when your persistence is being tested.
