Sometimes it feels like we are all alone.

We may think that no one understands us and so we isolate ourselves.

It’s healthy to have some time to pull away and rest our souls.

It’s not healthy to stay there.

Be aware of self-pity:  a feeling of pity for yourself because you believe you have suffered more than is fair or reasonable.* 

All of us get hurt.

All of us have to work through it.

You are not alone!

self-pity

Be careful you don’t stay in your pain too long.

Some people do not want to move on.  They may resent the pain and in reaction to it, stay there and sulk.

Be careful of self-pity.

And misery … it  does like company.

You may find yourself very alone.

Doesn’t the earth teach us that a long, dark night breaks with morning sunlight?

At some point, you have to welcome the light. How about today?

sensitivity.

Are you sensitive?

Are you too sensitive?

Being sensitive is a strength. You have the capacity to be sensitive toward others and that is a wonderful quality.

But it can be a weakness, too, if you find yourself being overly introspective, hard on yourself, thinking people are against you, self-pity, and even getting depressed.

Many of our problems can be improved or solved with changing how we look at things. Remove the glasses and clean up the smudged lenses. Or maybe you need to try a new pair of glasses altogether.

Because we are sensitive, we may think that is equal with humility. But if we’re honest, we can be prideful, thinking we’re always right, and get defensive if we’re asked to think differently.

Just consider that things may not be the way you think they are. Choose one situation and think about it differently.

Let your weakness become your strength!
