There is a really excellent article on 'WORD AMONG US" about St. Therese and her Little Way of Spiritual Perfection, titled:\
Calming the Inner Storm
St. Therese’s Way to Peace
extract from above article only:
It may come as a surprise, then, that one of Thérèse’s most significant teachings has to do with how to handle the more troubling feelings and emotions that we are all too familiar with—anger, hostility, and melancholy, for example, as well as the desire for attention and recognition. What’s more, these teachings are not abstract musings. Her writings brim with examples of how she noticed her feelings, explored them, and profited from them.
Over time, Thérèse discovered that human feelings and emotions—including those that upset us the most—can really be blessings in disguise. She found that if she approached them in the right spirit, they could even become stepping-stones to holiness. Her example shows us the way.
I can’t post it as it is a subscription only article. I can thoroughly and absolutely recommend Word Among Us as a worthwhile subscription to have, and it is not at all expensive. I was very tempted to post the article in full, but I have a feeling that would be infringement of copyright and against CAF Rules to post whole articles and unsure on that point too.
Word Among Us does have an excellent Search Facility, so if you do subscribe, all articles etc. are very easy to re locate.
