    Default just

    How are you?

    Is there any difference between (1) and (2)?
    If so, I'd like to know the meaning of "just" in (2).

    (1), Be patient.
    (2), Just be patient.

    Here, 'just' is an intensifying adverb. It makes the statement stronger, more insistent. Its meaning, if any, is 'precisely' or 'only'.
