I thought I was over things. Yesterday I made a proclamation that I was done and moving on, but it was more of a motivational speech for myself. Which didn't really work. I was in such a bad/angry mood all the day before I realized I was just kidding myself. Because I'm still frustrated. And a bit annoyed. And really, really hurt. And disappointed. All of it coming together in one great summary: I am discouraged. So, it helped that just now, I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw an acquaintance post this:
"Of course there will be some problems along the way. There will be difficulties to overcome. But they will not last forever. He will not forsake you."
"Look above your trials. Try to forget your own pains as you work to alleviate the pain of others. Mingle together with your brothers and sisters in the Gospel. We need others to talk with and to share our feelings and faith. Cultivate friends. Begin by being a good friend to others. Share your burdens with the Lord."
I love all the words of our prophets. But I can guarantee that whenever I need an uplifting message on any topic, I will find it from our dear President Hinckley. quotes
