Observation: The universe will accommodate your version of reality – to the extent that it can.

Suggestion: While being accommodating, be encouraging, supportive, and tolerant as well. If the person you are accommodating refuses to grow or is, in your opinion, growing too slowly, you may get frustrated. But as long as the person is moving, even a little, be patient and helpful.

Comparison to your expected rate of progress is inevitable, yet it may be best to disregard that judgment in favor of assessing their development in relation to their own methods and measurements.
