Be patient, forgiving, kind, and understanding

Is that obvious? It should be. Yet, the media and workplaces seem to forget it all the time.

Be slow to judge and quick to forgive…

This is one of my favorite adages.

I apply it nearly every day.

No one is perfect; we are each fighting our own battles; everyone has unique strengths and weaknesses.

And in those moments when anger or frustration might have been appropriate, it’s the unwarranted grace, patience, and kindess that will eventually make you a great person.
