The verb "olmak" is also used as "auxiliary verb" [yardımcı fiil] for some verbs, such as ;

sabırlı olmak = to be patient

inatçı olmak = to be stubborn

gerçekçi olmak = to be realist

geçici olmak = to be temporary

karamsar olmak = to be pessimistic

iyimser olmak = to be optimistic

kararlı olmak = to be determined

---------------------------------------------------------------

sabırlı ol ! ---> Be patient !

sabırlı oluyorum --> I am being patient.

sabırlı olacağım ----> I will be patient.

sabırlı olmayacağım ---> I wont be patient.

sabırlı olmak istemiyorum ---> I dont want to be patient.

sabırlı olmam lazım --> I need to be patient.

sabırlı olmalıyım ----> I should or must be patient.

sabırlı olmak zorundayım ---> I have to be patient.

sabırlı oldum ---> I was patient.

sabırlı olabilirim ---> I can be patient.

sabırlı olabilirdim  ----> I could have been patient.
