Medicine for Self-pity


I ran across this reflection and wanted to share it. The author suggests that gratitude for our blessings is one of the best ways to combat self-pity.


I think you need to check your link. The one you have goes to the meditation of the day, which I don’t think is the same one it was when you posted it. But thanks for the thought!



I’ve certainly been a lot less grumpy - and surprisingly a lot more inclined to do things for others as well - since I’ve been making a conscious effort to count my blessings once or twice each day :thumbsup:
