Never feel self-pity, the most destructive emotion there is. How awful to be caught up in the terrible squirrel cage of self. Millicent Fenwick

The horror of being captured by self-absorption

Is that it finds its way to no conclusion

The sun is shining but will you get sunburn?

If you run in a race will it be one that you won?

If you try and fail will you be scorned?

Would it have better had you not been born?

When going to a party, what clothes should you wear?

There is someone you like but do you dare?

Oh, the challenges of life can make one swear

Let us forget all the “what if’s” and just plain live

If you let yourself try you have much to give

Amen to that.

Depression is the root of self-indulgence. Some of us have a chronic case of it. One very easy way to combat depression, ask JESUS to help you. It works for me better than "Prozac". Excellent write, Lew.

Much truth in this Lew. Thanks.
