In the natural, when you are going on vacation, you would never ask your worst enemy to pack your bag for you. You might want your best friend to pack it, but you would probably want to pack it yourself. We live with other people’s words in our head that make us feel worthless, useless, of no value, and our memories are full of pain, abuse, and humiliation. I’s time for that nonsense to stop. Forget the former things. There comes a point in your life when you have to realize that the Cross is the end of negativity and the start of newness of life. You will never enjoy your life and you will die a disappointed person unless you get rid of this nonsense!
