12. Be patient. Don’t resent. Don’t judge. Forgive yourself.
My father always told me the hardest thing you’ll ever have to do is wait. My husband told me resent is the poison of marriage. Along the way, I’ve learned that all judgment comes from insecurity. And I’ve learned that forgiving yourself is much harder than forgiving others, but it’s much more important because it’s where forgiveness of others begins.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.—James 1:4
Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?—James 3:11
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven…—Luke 6: 37
