A man reaps what he sows.
You harvest what you plant. It is that simple. And that certain.
Some people limp through life feeling mistreated—by spouse, parent, child, teacher, employer, co-worker, friend.
And maybe they are. You may have been dealt a sorry hand and have a long list of legitimate reasons to be miffed.
Still, unless you face, fight, and defeat self-pity you are doomed to misery, for the seeds of self-pity produce a crop of anger, bitterness, and loneliness.
Eventually, everyone gives up on whiners, because trying to please them dead-ends in failure.
If you plant garlic don’t expect to grow roses.
You can’t build on self-pity;
only wallow in it.
