We can only give what we possess. If we are full of anger, it will overflow onto those around us. If we have a healthy love for ourselves, we will be able to give that love to others.
Sometimes we find ourselves dry, tired and worn-out. This is a prayer to save for moments like that.
Emotions like anger that we typically label “negative” are not bad in and of themselves. Rather, like the warning lights on the dashboard of a car, they are simply evidence of what is happening in our soul.
