Dear Lord, please help us to love those who are different and disagree with us: "But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven...If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?" Mt. 5:43-48.
All or nothing thinking completely misses out the subtle shades in life. It makes us see the future in terms of dramatic disasters, disappointments and catastrophes. Sure, disasters occasionally happen, but contrary to what you many see on the evening news, most of life occurs in a grey area between the extremes of bliss and devastation. -- via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2015/08/09/5-powerful-ways-to-free-yourself-from-negativity/
