The Common Thread

I never really understood why people acted the way they did… myself included. But it is clear to me now. Arrogance, ignorance, dishonesty, inconsideration, resentment, selfishness, lying, cheating, stealing, etc. etc. etc. all have one thing in common… fear. We are afraid that we aren’t smart enough, strong enough or attractive enough; we are afraid that people won’t like us or respect us… & we’re terrified of ending up alone. Hell… we’re even afraid to admit we’re afraid. The goal for today: the next time someone wrongs me, I will try to understand their fear rather than get angry at their actions; they need my prayers… not my anger! Have a great day everybody!
