Another lovely character trait… I think this is largely due to the fact that my brain is moving so fast when I am high that any delay causes a problem and I start to get stressed. When I am calmer my impatience is subdued and more appropriate. That said, when I was at the supermarket cash register the other day, there was a woman in front of me who was also ‘losing the plot’ because she could not get her card in quickly enough. Heartening to know that you can be impatient, impulsive, indecisive and not necessarily have bi-polar! It’s the degree to which it is excessive and interferes with your life and that of others which is important here. Being impatient in a car or while in a shopping queue is pretty commonplace I think in today’s world. Again if I am very impatient then I will try and calm down and think about how ludicrous it is and change my thinking and my actions.
