How many obstacles vanish…

The majority of people who have personal problems ``have them'' because they selfishly think about themselves. (The Forge, 310)

Most of the obstacles to our happiness come from our pride, which may be hidden to a greater or less degree. We had thought we were worth a great deal and had a lot of exceptional qualities; then, when others didn't agree, we felt humiliated. This is a good time to pray and to correct our mistaken attitude. We can be sure it is never too late to change our course. But it's wise to start changing it as soon as possible. (Friends of God, 249)

Saint Josemaría
