I'm not sure what you actually meant but I know when enough is enough simply by the way my heart feels. If I've tried to make something work and it's just not...enough is enough.

I'm not sure how that makes you a bad person.... you didn't give much detail, but in general no, that doesn't make you a bad person....it makes you a person.

You are not a bad person for wanting something for yourself.

I'm not sure what you're talking about.  But I can say some times it does hurt to wait on your faith and/or blessing to be manifested.  But I encourage you to wait and don't  do things on your own.  Assuming you're talking about things your asking, praying and waiting on God to do.  You don't want to bless yourself.  You  want God to bless you.  I know what I'm talking about.  I've had my share of ups and downs.  When I find myself down and about to give in I pray for God's strength so I can wait on Him.  He helps me every time!  Waiting comes easier for some more than others.  It was something that I had to learn and I'm still learning.  I've heard it said we're a microwave generation we want it right now and I believe it's true.  I also believe that good things come to those who wait.  Be encouraged.  I promise I have learned some things through my waiting experiences.  I have testimonies.

Psa 27:14 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

I don't understand the question but I think that it is imperative to do as much as you can to get where you want to be.  If you were to always wait until someone else decided that you should finally get what you deserve or what you wanted,you would probably be waiting a long time (if you ever got it at all).  There are times to have patience and there are times when you have to help yourself.  It is not selfish to go after what you want or to take action in making yourself happy.
