1 ~ I struggle with heightened/ hyper awareness of people and feelings around me. I have the tendency to feel other people's pain and can sometimes hear what people do not say (real or imagined). My compassion is rooted in what I "perceptive" (right or wrong). Insight and wisdom balance me out. Too much compassion can consume a person. Knowledge keeps us from unhealthy imbalance. Moderation in compassion (like all things) key.
2 ~ Both good and bad exist in hearts of ALL God created. This is a good thing in that . . . NO person can boast (either thinking/saying they are better/more pure than another). We are all in this life boat together! I am thankful, I know One who saves . . . Heaven just a prayer away.
3 ~ My dad would often quote, "God helps those who help themselves". Dad's insight helped me to help myself that I may help others help themselves.
Thankful for you . . . lfm
