Description: “Woe is me”, you mumble as you promptly decide to sulk in a corner, even though you know doing this will cause you to isolate yourself more.
Perhaps it’s because you find yourself being a victim of your circumstances, and life’s been unfair towards you. Or you’re suddenly triggered by an off-hand comment about you that does not match how you picture yourself.
All you know now is that it’s affected your confidence, even your confidence in Jesus. And you only want to be recognised and vindicated.
