Tact and the Patient

June 7th, 2015 - Char

Lately I have been facing many obstacles in my life— and while everyone tells me that I wouldn’t be given more than I can handle from the Lord, I am becoming distrustful in the saying. Frankly, God never said He wouldn’t give you more than you can handle. These words that are meant for encouragement can often serve to only create depression and bad feelings, especially when it’s constant advised.

I want to feel better, which means a Kidney Transplant. This process is so very overwhelming. I did not choose to have Polycystic Kidney Disease and its associated side effects, in spite of a relative callously telling me I selected it in the pre-existence. While not a lot has been written on this subject in LDS texts, what they teach is that only a few individuals in rare circumstances allowed to chose their bodies and the families we are born into.

Tact is the ability to deal with others in touchy situations without offending them. The lack of tact means you are unintentionally rude. Being sensitive to what is proper and appropriate in dealing with others is important. Everyone must cultivate the ability to speak or act without offending. The sad part of it all is that my friend’s and family’s motives are good, and their hearts full of kindly desires, but their words are failures because they lack the proper touch and do not know in what manner say things.
