Calmness

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
How patient are you? Do you tend to snap easily? Or do you remain calm and collected?

As I've got older I've become more patient. Everybody has to snap eventually but it didn't usually take much for me to get to that point.

At the moment my boss is really pissing me off, I'm trying just to smile and stay calm, but it's hard. :rolleyes:

So how do you all remain calm and keep your patientce? (sp?)

    You snap sooo easily, you go off the rails like that *snaps fingers*. Me, on the other hand, i am quite patient, but i snap quite easily when it comes to my family.

    I think your generally more patient with people outside of your family. But I think that goes for everything. I know I've taken things on the chin from other people that I wouldn't take from family or friends.

    I like to be calm and collected, but if I am in a bad mood I might easily and quickly snap.

    I'm usually quite calm and patient. However, if someone is patronising towards me or lies to me I can very quickly get angry and pissed off.

    If I don't feel very well or am in a bad mood already I tend to just be angry and pissed off in general and I will show it.

    It depends. Sometimes I'm really calm (I've even had people say they wish they were like me, so uncaring about what people say and do) but I can suddenly snap, then I get really angry and stuff and then people run away and hide.

    I suppose it does have a lot do to with what kind of mood you are in and whats on your mind at the time.

    For some things I have all the patience in the world. For others, well they just piss me off and I let people know it. Do you think thats a bad quality? I would never (as far as I know) hurt people but you have to express you feeling right?
