Guilt and shame are first cousins.
To be dissatisfied is to wish to avoid the conditions of your life.
What is here and now is somehow . . . not just good enough.
Resentment is often jealousy in its lesser form.
To resent the conditions of others is to place more emphasis on your personal inadequacies.
Can others not do enough for you?
Are you being held back, stripped of your potential, enslaved?
All these have the same root. Fear!
Of the unknown, of prior failures, of places less secure.
What stops you from acting to improve your condition?
Can you face today, another possible slap in the face?
Fear is a sickness, it robs you of your will to live your life.
And, all the worry, upset and unnamed hesitancy are the symptoms.
Make no mistake, bad and worse things happen.
Tomorrow may be the day of your death, loss, shame, another failure.
Turn and face your fears, they are different from mine and yours alone.
Smile and tell them they have no power over you.
For if you hide too long, your fears will find you and haunt you.
