Feeling sorry for ourselves is a waste of valuable time and a nauseating nuisance. We might have had no control over what people did to us or the adversities we’ve suffered in life, but we do have total control over our responses to them. We’re miserable because we’re discontent with what we have or who we are. We’re resentful because we’ve chosen to be held hostage by negative emotions and bad attitudes. We crave attention because we really think the world owes us something. We feel helpless because we don’t believe in God’s promises and power. This plain truth can set us free (cf. John 8:32). It’s time to wake up from the stupor of self-pity and start taking ownership of our actions and destiny.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
