Patience is key.
I have been grounded from my computer for a few months now. My dad has let me on for a short period of time now and then, though. I have done everything I have needed to do in order to earn my computer and yet, dad refuses to give it back. I am fuming and raging but know that it doesn't help. I seek wisdom and guidance in this situation. What is an important key in this dilema? Patience. If I am patient and wise with my father's rejection, then I will be ready for the next time I ask or the next time he lets me use it. If I don't hassle him, then I am more likely to be seen responsible and grown up. Instead of whining for our "wants" let us be grateful for what we are given and be thankful for what we are not. I realize in the midst of my anger, that everything happens for a reason and that I will get my computer back officially, in time, and It will have paid off to know the right thing to do. I will be patient and calm in my wait for my computer.
