No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, there will always be hard times in life. Life is all about hardships and struggle. Even the most successful man on earth faces adverse circumstances. Whenever the wind blows against a person, there are two options left. One is to get depressed, which is off course not a solution. Second is to face the problem, which needs strength. But how can such strength be acquired? Answer is Patience.

Patience doesn't mean not to react at anything. It means doing the right things and wait for their effects to appear. When I say 'the right things', that means things which are prescribed by religion and universal moral values. For example, when someone starts shouting at you, you have a choice. Either you can make that person calm down, maybe by just submitting to what he says if possible, or else start shouting at him too. In the first case, you can try to make that person realize your point of view when he is in his right mind later on. Off course, chances of success in the argument are not cent percent, but at least it will make that person give due consideration to your point of view. This increases your chances to resolve the problem, instead of magnifying the problem by shouting.

But all this requires a little control on what you feel. This control is patience. If you can be patient, you may also be able to understand others and also, yourself. This understanding may give a solid environment for love to blossom. Love always needs patience, and maybe patience needs love to exist. Both 'love' and 'patience' come together in package, and never separate. So, to make this world more lovely, patience is a necessity !
