Are we a demanding society or what? We want things now, right now as a matter of fact. Demanding is defined as requiring much work or attention. Do you think you are a demanding type of individual?
If we break down the word 'demanding,' what is in the center of it? 'MAN.' Yes, when we are demanding with others we are focused on our selfish desires. We don't consider the other factors involved like time, feelings, or tact in getting what we want. Patience goes a long way in dealing with this weakness.
You could probably say toddlers are the stereotype of a demanding person. They are still learning the ropes on how to wait their turn. Their reasoning abilities don't involve anything else but what is in their short-sighted little minds.
When we get a demanding attitude, the de---ding bell should sound off in our heads to remind us that we are just thinking about 'man' or ourselves. What you demand of others, demand it of yourself also. What is good for the goose, is good for the gander.
