Get To Know Yourself

stairs to climb

“Adversity has ever been considered the state in which a man most easily becomes acquainted with himself.”–Samuel Johnson–

“How does that make you feel?”  The answer to this question is one of the main keys to overcoming personal troubles. When we examine how we feel about issues and circumstances that worry us, the search for an answer will help us to accept, analyze, and deal with the problem.

Humor and optimism help a lot, also.
Climb those stairs and keep on smiling

    I think one reason we are here is to get to know One Another….and Ourselves. We might well start with what’s on hand…Us. Then, as we see commonality with Others, we can relate better to the weakness, sadness, joy, and hope that is inside our Fellow Man. (Using E.D’s use of capital letters to indicate importance.)
