I would like to put forth the assumption that life would be a much sweeter, kinder and gentler place if we could dispel the dangerous and debilitating spirits of self-hatred, self-loathing. Perhaps we should try and make a vow to, if not LOVE ourselves, at least not HATE ourselves.
For those of us who deal with prolonged issues such as pain, anxiety and depression, it’s easy to begin to question your abilities and worth. Once vibrant, bright-eyed and energetic, we slowly become hollow, dull-eyed and exhausted. But God is calling out of darkness, into His marvelous light. Laughter and love, not tears and anger. Joy and hope, not sadness and despair.
