Capsule for the Day
There are too many people hurting and complaining about how bad life is. "The whole world is against me", they think, imagine and spread the negatives. "Poor me! I am badly treated by this wicked world". No, God doesn't even care about what is going on. "He doesn't love me at all".
The truth is we think more about what people should be doing for us. How they should treat us and how sensitive they should be to our plight, our feeling and our journey. But we often don't think about how our actions and inactions prevent us from being loved... being cared for.
It is hard, and a near impossibility to try to please any person who lives in the "poor me" world. They are always right and every other person is wrong. There is nothing anyone can do to change us if we have this mindset unless we, ourselves, admit we have a problem and seek help to be better.
