Miller Nails Me To The Wall, Again.

Donald Miller has this crazy ability to untangle my muddled thoughts and contradictory heart desires in a few small sentences.  Yet again, he nails me this morning with his newest post:

What self-pity does, though, is it stops us from gaining that emotional muscle. It’s like God is saying, look, you can either have the blessing of a stronger character, or you can have the immediate gratification of self pity. But you can’t have both. People who wallow in self-pity, never grow strong in character.
