So I don’t have patience. Bless you if you do. I do, however, have understanding. I understand my role with my clients and with CARD. I see my purpose and understand the behavior intervention plans and programs I am implementing. I understand the functions of my clients’ behaviors, be it appropriate or problematic. I openly accept the fact that patience is not a quality I posses with confidence knowing that I am an understanding person. I believe the beauty of my shortcoming lies in the following statement: Patience can so easily run out. Understanding, on the other hand, never will.
