A Few Healthy "Don't"s

Don't think your case unique;
it can be matched many times over.
Don't give yourself to pity;
the temptation will be to feel sorry for yourself.
A self-pitying self is a pitiable self;
don't allow yourself to slip on that.
Don't give yourself to excessive grief.
Many do this, thinking they thereby
show their love.
Don't retail your sorrows;
doing so will cause them to grow.
Don't resign yourself to sorrow
and feel it will continue.
Don't complain;
the more you complain about things
the more things you will have to complain about.

-E. Stanley Jones
