Life has a way of draining us emotionally, mentally and physically. Most of the time, it’s because we let it. It’s natural to go through emotions. But, when we have told our story, and others have given us pity, don’t turn it into a pity party.
Those things that hurt us are only there for a reason and a season. They are there to build us up, reveal who we are, draw us closer to God, and to help others.
The pity party is over! Move on! You can’t be strong and pitiful at the same time.
Psalm 69:20 (KJV) – reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness: and I looked for some to take pity, but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) – to every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
