You Grow What You Plant

People harvest only what they plant.
                       —Galatians 6:7

You harvest what you plant. It’s that simple—and that certain.

Some people limp through life feeling mistreated—by a parent, spouse, child, teacher, employer, coworker, or friend.

And maybe they are.

You may have been dealt a sorry hand and have a long and legitimate list of 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.
