    Try to not judge others. See yourself as everyone’s equal; not better and not worse than others. Try to be free from the erroneous thinking of normal people. Have compassion on the normal people who have thinking errors about shame and guilt. They have not healed their original wounds that happened long ago. It is very difficult to heal the old wounds. It is painful and it is scary to face the truth about ourselves and others. They attempt to control others with shame and guilt. It was done to them and now they do it to others. It is time to get ourselves free from the habitual thinking of the past. It is time to dare to be ourselves and to do the things we choose to do. We do not need to let fear and doubt stop us any longer.

    But Christ has specifically given us the power to judge and expects us to use this ability for our betterment.

    Normality is highly over-rated.

    Try not to tell other people how to live. Mind your own damned business.

    Lord, give me the patience to deal with whiners or the weaponry to destroy them. Thanks.

    Does anyone else ever read a post and say to themselves, "Yep, no need to ever read that guy again..."?
