Actually, when Mother Theresa’s diaries were read, it came to light that she was miserable for the last 50 years of her life. I may have the number wrong but it struck me at the time and changed many things for me.
When you do ‘spiritual’ work like I do, all of the things you’ve written about are projected on you and expected of you and I was the most guilty party for projecting onto and expecting of, myself.
We are none of us, “saints”. We are all beings with inherent value and worth. I am validating your point here — simply pointing out that, when I read other data on Mother Theresa, whose work helped so many, it’s true! — It fundamentally changed something for me.
I appreciate you putting these principles into writing.
