I wave around this wand of patience, like some sort of magic stick, hoping all my problems will somehow magically disappear. Patience with others is applied much more easily then with myself.
I’d finally stop running and rebelling from the one person that was with me and carried me through all those hard times in my life.
Growth led to more understanding and that understanding showed me there is no shame in asking for help.
The Next Best thing…
I’ve been able to focus my attention on much more important things, like myself and God and doing the next best thing.
Pride and Humility
Humility has taught me how to put my pride and ego aside — most importantly, it has taught me how to ask for help… how to learn to listen, and listen to learn.
