Lifelong Struggle

I have been doing this for years. It truly is something that can take a lifetime. As time goes by you change and the world/people around you change. No matter how much I master one area of my life, there is always another area needing improvement or regressing back to old habits. The main ones I struggle with are trying to only have nice thoughts about people and being social, and not just in appearance...but truly going out and showing people that I genuinely care about them. I tend to want to be a recluse and it can be hard for me keep in touch as well as I intend. It can be hard to be the person you want to be, but you can never give up! Actually, one of my favorite quotes that I try to live by is by Saint Francis de Sales:

"Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them-every day begin the task anew"

Saints know the value of patience, don't they?
