When it comes down to that last piece of pie, or wanting someone to throw you the ball, you just have to “grin and bear it”. You can’t have it all, but you can take a fair share. It all comes down to how patient you are while you wait for that chance.
I remember a time that I was playing soccer during a game. I was and still am a player who always wants to have the ball under my control. I was getting a bit impatient with not having the ball, but I had to let the other players have a chance with the ball.
I enjoy sports a lot. I also use the lesson at home too. The thing set aside for dad to the last ice cream cone after dinner it all comes down to the way you stay away from taking more than your share.
If more people used this lesson, maybe the world would be a better place to be in.
This I believe.
