Love in fellowship.
I was a spoiled child. My family tried to give me everything. Whatever I wanted was given to me; my way or no way! This sick love robbed me of humility and separated me from humanity: it made me feel different, selfish and placed me on a pity-pot.
Being spoiled stopped me experiencing the real world and stopped me from growing. Today adversity is part of life and part of being human. Not to grow through adversity is to die. To have everything is to experience nothing. To feel in life — to have emotion — demands adversity and pain. —Father Leo
