Patience works in three areas of our lives: our relationships with others, with ourselves, and with God. Sometimes we cause additional grief because of our lack of patience with others and with ourselves. When we are temperate with our response towards others our relationships are improved, conflicts are not escalated and we feel a greater measure of love and peace. Patience with ourselves gives us the ability to move forward and make changes at a rate that is sustainable.
Fulton J. Sheen
