The God of all consolation … consoles us in all our afflictions and thereby enables us to console others in their tribulations.  – 2 Cor 1:3-4

Reflection.  Self-pity is the cancer of the soul.  You are called to be a healer, not a complainer.  Be like Jesus.  Think of others.  This is the month of our Savior’s birth.  Start pondering your mission in life.  Call upon the Lord to make you a healer.  Begin by canceling any thoughts you have about being a victim.  Snap out of it.

Prayer.  Holy Spirit, soul of my soul, brace me up when I drift into self-pity.
