Roses & Thorns
I guess I am on a roll with self-enlightenment, I can always use it. There is something that I always need to work on and that is keeping a positive attitude. We always find it superficially satisfying to find fault in something or someone. It is a normal defense mechanism to make us feel better about ourselves at the expense of others. The challenge is to sincerely look for positive attributes and reinforce them verbally. In the long run, it will be deeply satisfying for all concerned.
Contempt is the weapon of the weak and a defense against one's own despised and unwanted feelings. - Alice Duer Miller
