Bought myself a journal (300 Writing Prompts by Piccadilly Inc.) to force really quick writing. Here’s my latest prompt:
What is a personality trait do you admire in other people?
Patience, which often manifests itself in kindness.
Look, the world is a trying place. People and circumstances can frustrate us and lead us away from our daily (or lifelong) goals. It is so, so easy to take out a slew of perceived injustices on others because they’re not as “whatever” as we’d like them to be.
But we’re all unique individuals on highly personal journeys. We’re all of us more than we are at any given moment, and so exhibiting patience often provides the buffer that all sides in a situation need to save themselves from themselves.
I’m still working on this trait and suspect I always will be.
What personality trait do you admire? Tell me in the comments. 🙂
