Have you ever experienced long hours of waiting?

You may have commuted to went somewhere and you waited for a bus, a jeepney, or a taxi just to get a ride going to your destination. Perhaps, you've waited in line for a long time to pay for something that you bought.

Personally, I have a lot of experiences in waiting. I'm a 'time freak', so I tend to always come early whenever I have an appointment with my friends, and I always end up waiting for them, sometimes I wait for them for just a few minutes but oftentimes, waiting even takes an hour or more! Since the quarantine started, only one passenger is allowed in tricycles (a common vehicle in the Philippines that Filipinos use as a means of transportation), so I often have to wait for a long time just to get a ride and get to where I am going. Right now, I'm also waiting for Mr. Right to come to my life and I don't know how long I'm going to wait for him to come. Maybe he'll come tomorrow, or perhaps I'll wait forever. But what excites me the most nowadays is to wait when TheRandomRewarder will visit my articles. Being remembered by RandomRewarder excites me more than getting a boyfriend lol.

Me waiting for true love ๐Ÿคญ

Yes, every day, each of us experiences waiting, maybe we wait in queue at the counter to pay for groceries, at the restaurant to be served by the waiter or maybe waiting for a ride. Everyone waits.

Indeed, waiting is boring and sometimes it is also annoying. Especially when we think that we could have allocated the time we spent on waiting for something else, something that is more important.

Some people complain when they wait. And it is really normal to get annoyed because it is a waste of time to wait and the wasted time can never be restored.

Sometimes, it is really tedious to wait especially when it seems like we have been waiting for too long. There are even misunderstandings between friends just because of the annoying wait. Here in the Philippines we have the so-called Filipino time trend, appointments that are supposes to be 8 o'clock becomes 9 o'clock because most Filipinos tends to come one hour later that the appointed time, sometimes even more than that! Personally, that's what annoys me the most because just like I mentioned, I often wait for the person I agreed to meet. I already learned from my latecomer friends, so in the past, I set an early time for us to meet but I arrived late because I knew my friends would be late. Instead of being bored waiting for them, and thinking that it would be a waste of time of my time, which I would have spent in taking my breakfast or doing other household chores it would be better to be late.

But whatever the reason why we wait, it is definitely worth the wait when what we have been waiting for already comes. For example, in the past few days, I always seem to wait for a long time for TheRandomRewarder, I often feel sad when I check my notification and there is not even a single notification from him. But because I'm sure he won't forget me, instead of checking my notification from time to time if there is a notification from him, I just checked other articles, looked at different photography shots or write an article instead. As one proverb says, "Expectations postponed makes the heart sick, but a desire realized is a tree of life." When I expect a notification from him but gets nothing after checking, I get really sad and it is heartbreaking. But when I don't expect too much, I don't get hurt. Sometimes I just get surprised when I check my notification and see a lot of notification from him. So, what is my point? Nothing. I just want to share my experience in waiting for RandomRewarder because I know there are many users out there who waits for him every day and maybe, every hour just to be visited by him!

Patiently Waiting is all Worth It

I have waited many times, so I have become accustomed to waiting. And when I think, and I am convinced that there is a good reason why some events are delayed or why some people are late, it makes it okay for me to wait, especially when I know that what I am waiting for will eventually come soon. Sometimes the delivery of items I ordered online was delayed. But it's okay for me to wait because I know the item I'm waiting for is all worth it.

If we think about it, waiting is already an integral part of life. But we do not always have to stress ourselves when waiting. Sometimes this is the reason to be happy and it even excites us. For example, right now one of my most awaited day is the wedding of one of my closest friends, it's still a bit long but I'm really super excited because she's the second closest friend I have who's wedding I'm going to attend. So even though the wait is long, it's okay with me and I'm not even stressed nor bored.

How to Avoid The Stress Caused By Waiting?

Consider the following points that might also help you to avoid getting stressed because of long hours of waiting. It helped m, so it might help you too.

  • If you often wait for your friends every time you have an appointment, try to set the meeting time earlier. If the appointment time should be at eight o'clock, set at seven o'clock. So even if they are late, at least you won't have to wait for them. But it would be a problem if a miracle happened, and they arrive early! Don't worry, just let them have a taste of their own medicine!

  • They say, a true friend will talk to you frankly about whatever problems they have with you. It is okay to sometimes remind a close friend or family member in a kind and loving way about being a habitual latecomer. They probably don't notice that he/she is like that and talking to them might help them change.

A picture of a clock I once saw on facebook which I downloaded and sent to my cousin to point out how much of a late comer she is.

  • You can also anticipate waiting and wait in a place where you won't get bored and worse, annoyed. I once agreed to meet a cousin whose known for being late all the time, so I preferred to wait in a place with a lot of people, I often enjoy watching people who go back and forth from here and there and it makes me forget that I'm waiting. Well, maybe it makes me weird but at least it eases my boredom caused by waiting.

  • Try to do some other activities while waiting. Maybe you can write if you love writing, you can play games on your mobile phone or read. Others just check and scrolls on their social media accounts when waiting, just to avoid getting bored.

  • If you are waiting with other people around, it might be good to talk to them if you have the courage to do so. I remember, back in college I went to a State University so it has a lot of students and during enrollment, it is expected that we're going to wait for long hours on lines just to get the sign of the registrar and pay for our tuition fees on the cashier, since I'm not fond of going with my friends or classmates during enrollment, I always end up being a loner. So what I usually do is, I talk to strangers and befriends them. It makes hours of waiting easier.

Whatever your reason for waiting, always remember that patience always pays off. Just like today, I am happy that RandomRewarder also finally remembered me after almost three days, so I was inspired to write this article.

My hatest late comer is my husband. ๐Ÿ˜‚ He takes a long time in the bathroom always. Then when it's time to go he goes to the toilet and spends almost half an hour inside. Isn't it annoying? ๐Ÿ˜….. That's why when I'm in a hurry I go alone because he consumes a lot of time and it will be a total waste.. Lol! Even when we were not yet together he was always the late comer in the group.

Yes, I noticed that too but I didn't think that it has something to do with changes because I usually get lower tip for a shorter article. I'll try to write articles with the same length and see how much tip I'll get for both.
