Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to give advice then it is to take it?
To solve the worlds problems before you even peek under the carpet you've been shoving your problems under?

The interesting thing I've noticed about this God character that keeps pursuing me is that when I start cleaning out from under the carpet I've swept all of my ragged edges under my eyes start seeing the ragged edges on others more clearly.
What I mean by that is not that I can see others flaws when I couldn't before, what I mean is I can see them in context.

It doesn't stop the hurt, it doesn't stop the sometimes heart wrenching process of opening myself to a Grace that I am convinced I don't deserve. But it helps me feel less alone.
