There are many challenges that come with despair and they often call for acceptance and forgiveness. When expectations aren’t met or situations don’t work out, emotions can become overwhelming and disillusionment with life can spill in. Don’t allow bitterness to become blinders, so that new opportunities and solutions are missed. Hindsight can cause one to be judgmental, yet remember that if solutions were clear and actions for different choices possible, that would be the path taken. Different choices cannot be made under certain circumstances; this is a good time for the serenity prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
