Virtue of the Week: Tact

Tact is telling the truth kindly, considerate of how your words affect others’ feelings. Think before you speak, knowing what is better left unsaid. When you are tactful, others find it easier to hear what you have to say.

Virtue of the Week: Friendliness

Friendliness is being a friend, through good times and bad. You take an interest in other people and make them feel welcome. You share your belongings, your time, and yourself.

Virtue of the Week: Courtesy

Courtesy is being polite and having good manners. When you speak and act courteously, you give others a feeling of being valued and respected. Courtesy helps life go smoothly.

Virtue of the Week: Forgiveness

Being forgiving is giving someone another chance after they have done something wrong. Forgive yourself too. Instead of feeling hopeless after a mistake, decide to act differently, and have faith that you can change.
