One of the things have learn from my mom over the years,is how to tolerate things and people around me.
You see in life, you'll surely come across different kind of people,both those that has a good sense of reasoning and those that don't,but in all try to tolerate, because with that you'll never find anything so hard to go with in life.
If you've been to Lagos State before you'll understand why tolerance is so important in life, you'll see some people that will just come to harass you for no just cost,the truth is that if you follow the same measures that they came the both of you might end up injuring yourselves.
Have seen a situation here when a guy got slapped because he was just looking,like who does that,well according to the other guy that slapped him,he said the guy was looking anyhow,like seriously i tought we all have freedom to look at things,but the guy that slapped him said he doesn't like the way he was looking.......well to cut the long story short,the guy that they slapped didn't not retaliate,and that was it.
We should learn to exhibit the character of that guy that didn't retaliate,no matter what you face in life,learn to tolerate it really helps.
