Patience With Myself

How right you are to see that anger (even when directed against oneself) “worketh not the righteousness of God.” One must never be either content with, or impatient with, oneself. My old confessor (now dead) used to impress on me the need for the 3 Patiences: patience with God, with my neighbor, with oneself.

~C.S. Lewis – March 31, 1954, in a letter to Mary Willis Shelburne.

For reflection on Job 6:11
