Lord, I ask You to give me the graces necessary to be selfless, to freely give without want. I want to love others without any of my own attachments or desires. I want to be friends with others and not desire that they fill some void in my heart, allow me to give that void to You.
I realize that if someone hurts you in anyway it is usually because at some point in their life, they were hurt, if not in the same way, in a worse way. Instead of hating or cursing them, I’d suggest praying for their healing.
I’m sad. But I know there’s joy to be found in the sadness. This sadness is different.
I’m happy because I could tell that I’m following God’s plan. For once I’m certain about where I’m at and where I’m going.
"Before the sin, Satan assures us that it is of no consequence; after the sin, he persuades us that it is unforgivable."

Don’t ever put your happiness in someone else’s hands. They’ll drop it. They’ll drop it every time.

This. Every single time.
