In Some Ways a Psychological Mess

Apart from eating, drinking and sleeping, what can you look back and say you've done "all your life"? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 870).

I have striven – despite paranoid tendencies to the contrary – to withhold judgment when viewing others while being stricter on myself. It is a fact of life  that not all people have good will in their hearts, that all are not manipulative, and that not all have high ethical standards. Thus a nature that reflexively withholds judgment can be open to "got you" paranoid moments when proffered trust is abused. There is a tendency for the pendulum to swing suddenly from trust to distrust of others and compounded harsh self-judgment for playing the fool. There is no way to save me from this long regnant condition, other than to abjectly rely on the redeeming grace of God.
