orthodoxgladness:

Endure all offenses at first by silence,
then by reproving yourself,
then by prayer for those who offended.

Schema-Igumen Savva (Ostapenko)

The words are on my tongue faster than the thoughts are in my mind. The anger boils over before I have truly even understood what has taken place.

My innate response is to yell and to dominate. To scream and to hate. No one takes advantage of me. No one can take my rights. I am my own king. I am my own god.

But this is not true. I am king of nothing. I am no god at all.

I can’t even control my most basic elements.
