Gentleness as a Virtue

Gentleness is giving up the need to have my own way.  I can best do this through silence and non-interference in other’s decision making.  I can quietly let others do what pleases them even if I don’t especially enjoy it.  It means letting the other person have his way.  Of course, this doesn’t extend to issues of right and wrong, people’s character or similar moral matters.  Gentleness can also mean to refrain from giving advice, trying to have an answer for everything or needing to always express my own opinion.
