Courage in Relationships

My Post (33)

“You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.”
― Epicurus

Stuck at home with a spouse that would rather I quarantine myself anywhere but here is an object lesson in patient endurance and forgiveness. Funnily enough, I’m finding that the one  I have to forgive more often than not is myself. I find it easier to forgive the failings of others than my own and can often spend days or weeks rehashing my mistakes.

May we make the best of this pressure cooker and bring compassion to our lives in the furnace and to those we are protecting outside as well.


  1. Great post 😁
