Work on Yourself

Found on

Have you ever tried to clean up other people’s mess while neglecting your own? God can heal us when we focus on ourselves. We have to understand. Why do we act like He can’t? Some don’t want to get better. It’s their decision. Don’t get used to that place of discomfort, and that place of unhappiness. Stop trying to improve someone else’s life when you have to work on yours. It doesn’t mean that you don’t care. We have all been there. It means that you realize before you can help someone else, you have to help yourself, and that is very healthy! There is only one person you can change, and that is YOU. Everything else will fall into place. Pray for others. Be your own best friend!
