"It is no use casting out devils. They belong to us, we must accept them and be at peace with them." 
~ DH Lawrence ~

When I am self-consumed, compassion for others becomes a low priority. I lose my sensitivity and kindness and fill up with resentment and blame. And then, recklessly, and unconsciously, I spew my righteousness like a boiling-over pot of pasta making a mess all over the stove top.
     At some point or other, I always come around, but there is wreckage in my wake, and a deep sadness and regret in my soul.

When I feel myself feeling sorry for myself and irritable on the inside, I stop everything and regroup before I interact with others so that I can avoid hurt on all sides.
