|It takes patience to pick just the right filter for this shot|
You are unaware that I am not known for my patience (just tuning in are we?!) so you choose to do some background reading on the topic, picking "The Art of Patience" - a post I wrote February 22, 2015 on the topic of patience.
You are well aware that I'm a not a patient person and you choose to read on...

So someone thinks I'm patient! Super cool, right?! And there is no need to be an asshole and point out that IM1 probably thinks I'm patient because he has never actually met me in "real life" and perhaps has only had the pleasure of interacting with me via email.
That could be true, it may not be true. Kind of like will we ever know if God truly exists? Probably not, so we should really move on with the story and just assume that IM1 has actually met me.
You are pretty sure God exists and to prove that, you choose to conduct some evidence-based research on the topic, just to prove I'm wrong and you are right. So off you go down that rabbit hole, and we never hear from you again.
You don't care if God exists or not, you are pretty sure IM1 probably doesn't even exist but you don't care, you just want to read the rest of the damn blog post already! You choose to keep reading.

Ok...so here is how you do it...how to be patient (or at least appear to be patient)
Definition of patience (compliments of Dictionary.com).
Patience (in 3 parts)...
ANDREA TIP: it is best to spend a lot of time alone. Truth is, I am able to get the impossible done (have you seen me lately?!). And sure it takes a long time and a lot of work and patience! But if I seem to you like I accomplished something with a lot of grace and poise, it is probably because you didn't actually see me work on getting it done. Basically I did the majority of the work (i.e., the work that makes me swear a lot) locked in an office with the blinds shut.

And it isn't that you aren't being true to yourself, it is just you are being respectful of others and not subjecting them to your bullshit. After all we all have bullshit, the ones that seem like they don't, at least have the decency to not expose us to their bullshit. And we should thank them for that.
