Bitterness infects those who
bear others’ burdens
From: Reflections: Images: Perception
This time of year, as Christmas and the New Year approaches, is a time for reflection, for looking forward rather than regret. Indeed, the year, and one’s life may have brought some setbacks, but only you alone can deal with it, and can do so in one’s own way. ‘Failure’ is a word other people use, and with which they may judge you, perhaps because you did not conform to their expectations and prejudices.
There are others who cannot see the positive in anything, only the negative.
These people are found in every family, and they may be in your household either this Christmas, or you in theirs, or you might have no choice but to spend 365 days a year under the same roof.
These people are poisonous, and will not let you be yourself, and only emanate negative energy, and destroy themselves, time over time, to become even more bitter and vicious.
It really is a matter of perception
