How impatience emerges

This principle can be difficult to take on board, I know. Nevertheless, it's an important one to ponder as understanding how impatience really arises can truly contribute to our ongoing happiness:

Other people can’t cause us to be impatient unless we let them do so. In other words, others don’t make us impatient. We make ourselves impatient, through our expectations and demands, fixated attachments and stuckness.

-- Lama Surya Das
