Lenient /ˈlēnēənt/ – to be forgiving or permissive.
Ex. “Sam became lenient after I apologized for breaking her book. She smiled and gave me a hug.”
I’ve come across this term countless times throughout my time being. I’ve had a sense of the word but didnt really know what it actually meant. Turns out to be the oppisite of what I thought it was.Print this page
