The stress was building up from all the various activities from my life. A dear friend kindly pointed something out to me the other night. This friend's husband often heard this from his mother. It was so needed and reassuring that I decided that I should share.
Why do you keep trying to please the people around you? You are never going to be able to please everyone. Christ was perfect and look what they did to HIM!
This statement doesn't share a new idea but it did help me put it all together.
