Patience is considered a virtue by most. To abstain from aggression breaks the cycle of violence. More importantly, it opens us up to listening what the other side has to say.
But that doesn’t mean virtues are easy to execute. With patience often comes a pain. Just because you choose to stay in patience doesn’t mean their isn’t heartache. Often you are left with being hot around the collar. Perhaps, the other side has wronged you and you have to wait for them to come around. Whatever the case may be—patience causes tension which often translates to tenderness and pain.
You might have made the best decision you could but it doesn’t mean it’s easy to play through. And with patience, it’s okay to feel sad, remorse and regret.
