Being patient and actively waiting is one of the hardest things to do. You want to confront things, you want to ask more questions, you want to insert yourself into situations to get a response from people.
Don’t push yourself into things – but wait patiently.
It is hard – but it helps you in the long run.
If people don’t ask you to be a part of something – do not insert yourself – let it go.
To be quiet sometimes, to be in the background, to not be involved in everything is a good thing. This will only come if you resist the knee-jerk reaction to jump into things.
Don’t make everything about you.
