You require no patience

We should require no patience. Or we all require patience all of the time.

What is not ok is when patience is bestowed "generously" from one to another. As a laying-the hand-on-head saying "you just need some patience". An act of creating imbalance.

That comes with a set of underlying assumptions. Including that one knows better, that change must happen for acceptance, and that suffering is a part of this relationship.
