Patience is a vice?

Sometimes you find yourself treading water. Just staying afloat, going nowhere, and no one's coming to throw you a life buoy. Your stuck. Patience can be a virtue but at some point it becomes a vice, it becomes wishful thinking. If your the only one trying to make it better, make a change, everyone else is stalling, sabotaging, coasting, looking the other way, or just plain pretending that this just isn't their problem, you have to wonder, is it time to get out of the water and try something new? Me, I think so. I think the risk of change is far better than the death spiral of patience and tolerance in intolerable situations. Sometimes things need to get broken, abandoned, left behind, to make something really worth keeping.
