Gentleness is a way of life, showing our love in how we interact with people and things. Like any way of life, gentleness has to be practiced for us to become more gentle. If we want to become more gentle, we must take active steps, that is
(1) choosing to be more gentle,
(2) keeping this resolution in mind,
(3) acting in gentleness, and
(4) catching ourselves when we are not gentle so that we can be more aware of our gentleness or lack of gentleness in the future.
