It is completely futile to burn ourselves out with anger because of the way life sometimes plays out, or because of the unkind words or thoughtless actions of another.

We need to stop and be mindful that everyone lives in their own world that often revolves around the kind of fear and struggle that cause enough pain to overshadow the beauty of our hearts and can crush our natural willingness to be open, loving and welcoming to everyone around us.
