Having a new puppy has taught me something about myself. I’m not as patient as I thought I was. In fact, I don’t think I would even classify myself as a patient person. I’m not an impatient person either, but I definitely have limited patience at times. I think it’s important to recognize things like this about yourself because it empowers you to manage resulting behaviors you would prefer not to exhibit. That only means it becomes possible. It doesn’t mean I’ll be able to do it.
