This evening, I reflected on my strengths and weaknesses. I thought about how my shortcomings manifest themselves in my interactions with those closest to me. For example, I do not have much patience for people who do not appear to live their lives purposefully. For example, they claim to represent or value one thing but their life choices reflect something completely different. This definitely has to change because nobody is perfect and I have plenty of inconsistencies in my own life. Who am I to draw conclusions about anyone else? This does not mean I will entrust irresponsible parties with my time or well-being, but I will try harder to empathize.
