pA-sh&nt (adjective):  bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint.   "Bearing pain calmly"...I'm not sure I do it very calmly, but I do know what it feels like to "bear pain".   I even know what it feels like to bear the deep pain of those I love.  I see your Patience and raise you one Passion...'pa-sh&n: intense, driving, or overmastering feeling or conviction; applies to an emotion that is deeply stirring or ungovernable.  "Deeply stirring" I know for a fact that I have felt that.  I think it's the underlying passions we have in life that often create the need for the patience.  Why is it so hard to live passionately?  Are we scared that others simply wouldn't understand?   Are we waiting for permission?  Patience... Passions...surely there is a balance.
