“Tolerance is the greatest gift of the mind; it requires the same effort of the brain that it takes to balance oneself on a bicycle.” ~ Helen Keller
Be honest, how much can you tolerate? Whats your breaking point? The level is different for most of us. For some a simple word can set them off, and for others, like myself, will tolerate as much as possible just to keep the peace. The importance of tolerance is balance. Something that helped me in my life was not only learning but accepting my level of tolerance. The ability to bite your tongue is important, but keeping your silence during ever altercation is self destructive. I was doing more harm to myself by suppressing my voice. It wasn’t healthy. But also understand the effects of having a short temper. It isn’t healthy either. It’s unfair to people as well as yourself. So do you think you can find your balance?
