I think there is a strong connection between tolerance and forgiveness.
You can’t be great at one without having a considerable amount of the other. Plus you need both if you’re to lead a peaceable life.
You’ll agree with me that whether in dealings with your spouse, who by the way can be very nerve racking, or your siblings, who can be very annoyong, or colleagues, who can be very nosey, or extended family, who can be very judgemental, or friends, who can feel very entitled, you need tolerance. Not to mention forgiveness. That one should come as second nature because, try as much as you can, people will still find a way to offend you.
You see, you have to try to understand people you deal with daily and allow a considerable tolerance limit for offences everyday, otherwise you’ll be very miserable and angry allthe time. It is therefore important that we learn to forgive people who hurt us whether or not they see their shortcomings. Because, you cannot enjoy inner peace if you’re not living in peace with others.
