Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking..
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking. Love is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts always hopes and always perseveres.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
While I am not religious, I adore the description of love from the Bible which describes in detail what real love looks like. Sometimes when we have grown up in a toxic environment. It can be difficult to know what to aim for with love.
The Importance of Patience
So many times we think of our ideal partner in terms of character traits and superficial criteria. However, it is important to remember that the core qualities of a person are what will stand the test of time.
What good is a charming, sexy, spontaneous, billionaire if they are impatient and unkind? Would you want to share children with such a person? I thought not.
No one wants to land up with someone who loses their temper over the slightest delay or mistake. Love is patient. The capacity for patience is one of the most admirable traits in a human being. In life, there will always be long queues, traffic jams, and challenging people.
Everyone has to repeat themselves at times, and we humans can take a while to catch on to new information. It goes without saying that it is preferable to be with a partner who is capable of great patience.
The Joy of Kindness
Kindness is a key factor in any potential partner, although this concept is a bit more subtle. While your partner might not be directly unkind, there is a difference between being actively kind versus not being unkind.
Kindness attempts to lift the spirit of another through actions or words. It also goes above and beyond what is typically expected. A small gesture such as a husband preparing dinner because he knows his wife has had a crazy week is a great example of kindness. Kindness also extends to listening with understanding and speaking words of comfort and encouragement in hard times.
