Christus Vivit 166: Dwelling on Oneself

More today on Paths of fraternity, a caution against self-absorption. To be sure, this isn’t an exclusive problem for young people. Some women and men never outgrow it.

166. There are times when all our youthful energy, dreams and enthusiasm can flag because we are tempted to dwell on ourselves and our problems, our hurt feelings and our grievances. Don’t let this happen to you! You will grow old before your time. Each age has its beauty, and the years of our youth need to be marked by shared ideals, hopes and dreams, great horizons that we can contemplate together.
