“If anything he should be apologising to me, not the other way around!”
We’ve all been there. They think they’re being victimised and so do we, and never the twain shall meet; not at least with such divergently polar views.
But, life is not really about me getting my own way, nor you.
Life is about mutual success and inclusivity. It’s about joining forces with others to achieve collective objectives. It’s about becoming one with others as God is One.
Next time we have the above ‘common sentiment’ ringing through our minds—the complaint of the heart—we’d do well to remember our rampant pride of self pity is robbing everyone else (including ourselves) of what we all deserve: the good life.
