Impatiens / Bach Flower Remedy - 20ml Liquid
Negative Aspects Treated: impatient (especially with slow people), hasty, independent, quick in thought and action – ‘cant wait’
Positive Outcomes: understanding and tolerance of others
Impatiens is suitable for people who are easily irritated. They are impatient and want everything done instantly. They act, think and speak quickly. These people are capable and efficient but irritated and frustrated by slow co-workers and therefore prefer to work alone. They are independent, hate wasting time and often finish other people's sentences.
They may have temper flare-ups but these are soon over. When ill, they make restless and irritable patients. They are often fidgety and their hastiness may lead to accident-proneness.
The positive potential of Impatiens is someone who is decisive and spontaneous but less hasty in thought and action. They are relaxed and good-humoured with others and sympathetic to those who are slow. They cope calmly and diplomatically with irritating problems.
In Dr. Bach's words:
"Those who are quick in thought and action and who wish all things to be done without hesitation or delay. When ill they are anxious for a hasty recovery. They find it very difficult to be patient with people who are slow, as they consider it wrong and a waste of time, and they will endeavour to make such people quicker in all ways. They often prefer to work and think alone, so that they can do everything at their own speed."
