Being The Bigger Person


I find myself in this situation often, where somebody tries to get me to “stoop” to their level. Well I REFUSE!!!!

Even though being the bigger person is tough, and the other person doesn’t always see it. It provides such a huge benefit to you. It shows you, that you have the patience, and self-control that many others don’t have. It means that when you are faced with any situation you are not taken out of your element.





I tend to consider myself a very patient person. I am not easily triggered, but I also notice I have certain pet peeves that fuel my anger instantly.

Does this mean that maybe I don’t have patience figured out at all?

Then I decided to look up the dictionary definition for patience: the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, trouble, or suffering without getting angry or upset.

Tolerate delay?

Maybe I am patient after all. I just need to tolerate delay with my pet peeves!!!
