Learning from relationships

/ 01:28 AM December 06, 2014

Relationships provide us with opportunities to develop patience, kindness, tolerance, forgiveness and love. Some reminders that will also help us grow spiritually:

Be tolerant.


Be supportive.

Be understanding.


Be encouraging.

Be forgiving.

Don’t be quick to judge others.


Respect each other.

Apologize when you’re wrong.

Strive for personal perfection, but don’t expect it from others.


Understand that the other person isn’t perfect. Oftentimes, our idea of “perfection” is expecting others to behave the way we want them to.

Appreciate others and focus on what they’re doing, rather than what they aren’t!
