Virtue of the Fortnight: Tolerance

How Do You Practice Tolerance?

Practicing tolerance is showing respect and appreciation for differences. You don’t judge or tease someone who is different. You make them feel at home. You show forgiveness when someone makes a mistake. Tolerance does not mean being passive and letting someone hurt you. When that happens, you need assertiveness. When you are tolerant, you have patience and flexibility to accept the things you cannot change with good grace.


I am tolerant. I overlook people’s faults. I appreciate differences. I accept the things I cannot change with good grace.
