“How are we to be patient with our partner’s, our children’s, our friends’, and our neighbors’ faults if we are impatient in dealing with our own? They who are fretted by their own failings will not correct them. All profitable correction comes from a calm and peaceful mind.” – St. Francis de Sales

Well, I have not put a quote out here in a while so I tought it will be a good entry today. I have been dealing with stuff at work and I tought that a quote on patience will help me out a lot. This one is a very good entry and my interpretation of it is that before we can begin to be patient towards others we have to be patient with ourselves. I can be really introspective at times, and I do see a lot of my faults. I try to work on them but this quote reminds me of being patient with myself, so that I can also be patient towards other.

Are you patient with yourself?

  1. I’m a very impatient person, I recognize. But I’ve noticed I’m more tolerant toward myself, so I guess that’s somehow good. Still, it doesn’t make up for the way I want to live my life sometimes, right here, right now kind of thing, driving everyone else nuts.

  2. There are times in my life when I can be the most impatient person around. Or to live with. And there are other times and circumstances in my life when I am just too patient.
