It is everywhere, yet not too many people talk about it.
It drives the way people live, how they act, what they are willing to do, who they will talk to, what they will say.
It can be paralyzing, it can lead to depression, to anger, to revenge.
It can keep people from doing what they were born to do, born to be.
It ruins relationships, can ruin lives of everyone around you, yet you will never blame it.
It can keep happiness and contentment out of your lives, but it surely can’t be your fault.
It can help you to justify just about anything you do, regardless of whether it is right or wrong
It will place the blame squarely on anyone or anything that crosses your path and does you wrong.
It will keep you from being happy, joyous and free in all that you do. It is like a dark cloud hanging over you, and only you.
It, in my opinion and in my experience, can be the deadliest of any of the sins.
But it covers itself up with the rest of them, it is sneaky that way.
It will keep you from asking for help, because no one else really understands you any way
It will keep you from seeking God, or whatever Higher Power you seek for the same reason
What is it?
One word I have seen used is despondence, but I choose to call it SELF-PITY, and it will kill me if I let it.
Today, I choose not to let it
Peace to all, including me
