What is biblical patience?

Galatians 5:22 (ESV)

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

God’s kindness is his forbearance and patience, restraining the infliction of punishment and execution of his wrath in order to encourage repentance (see 2 Peter 3:7–10). This patience shown towards man is the basis and reason for Christian patience to others,1 the enduring of difficult situations and people without losing your composure.2
