Recently, I’ve come to an existential comprehension of why “long-suffering” and “patience” are synonyms…
It takes a distinct determination, a fortitude and resilience to wait patiently for something so deeply desired.
Patience isn’t just about letting time pass.
It’s got to do with the attitude adopted while the necessary time lapses.
It is, by no means, a passive virtue.
It’s active. It acts with dignity, with decorum.
It resists the urge to rush things. It waits.
To choose to love is to choose first to wait…
