Patience is a virtue because when it comes to relationships, it can be a life saver and a love saver.
It gives space for personal clarity and understanding, and it gives a relationship some healthy spaces to bear the fruit of certain necessary aspects for both people to grow stronger – individually and together.
It means going into something without rushing into it.
Most of all, being patient with yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. To understand who you are and what you want in a relationship – it will save you and the other person time and heartache if you go in with a stronger sense of both these things. Most importantly, whether you’re in a relationship (and whatever stage), or out of one and needing to heal, people who know how to respect your heart will give you their loving patience. And I hope you give that same loving patience to whoever needs it too.
