Hate and bitterness sometimes seem like the only emotions that allow me to get up each day and face the world....I agree that we can't love or forgive others if we can't love and forgive ourselves....Most people, can't or are unwilling to look in the mirror....It is much easier to focus on the shortcomings of others than to honestly critique ourselves....How can we love others, let others love us, or love being alive if we hate ourselves?
Forgiveness of myself and others seems like trying to touch the stars....Just completely out of reach....It seems like hate, pettiness, bitterness etc. are defense mechanisms that allow me to deny that controlling life is completely out of my hands....
