I am constantly having to remind myself that the situations i can't change are here to teach me patience.
Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.
Surely God would not have created such a being as man, with an ability to grasp the infinite, to exist only for a day! No, no, man was made for immortality.
Maturity is also self-awareness, knowing your own strength, your weaknesses and your limitations.
To force oneself to believe and to accept a thing without understanding is political, and not spiritual or intellectual.
But don't let anybody rush you into a direction that pushes you further away from you. Especially men.
