The Discontented Woman.
(By Ella Wheeler Wilcox.) , !
The conceited girl or woman is
tiresome and unpleasant as a com
panion, but the morbidly discontent
ed woman is far worse. Perhaps
you have met her, with her eternal
complaint of the injustice of Fate
toward her.
She feels that she is born for bet
ter things than have befallen her;
her family does not understand her;
her friends misjudge her; the public
slights her.
If she is married she finds herself
superior to her husband and to her
associates. She is eternally longing
for what she has not, and when she
gets it is dissatisfied.
The sorrowful side of life alone
appeals to her.
This she believes is due to her
"artistic nature." The injustice of
fortune and the unkindness of so
ciety are topics dear to her heart.
She finds her only rapture in misery.
If she is religiously inclined she
looks toward Heaven with more grim
satisfaction in the thought that it
will strip fame,, favors and fortune
from the unworthy than because it
will give her the benefits she feels
she deserves.
She does not dream that she is
losing years of Heaven here upon
earth by her own mental attitude.
We build our heavens though by
If you are dwelling upon the dark
phases of your destiny and upon the
ungracious acts of Fate you are
shaping more of the same experience
for yourself here and in realms be
yond. You are making happiness im
possible for yourself upon any plane.
In your own self lies Destiny.
I have known a woman to keep
her entire family despondent for
years by her continual assertions
that she was out of her sphere, mis-( ,
understood and unappreciated. The
minds of sensative children accepted
these statements and grieved over
"Poor Mother's" sad life until their
own youth was embittered. The
morbid mother seized upon the sym
pathies of her children like a leech
and sapped their young lives of Joy.
The husband grew discouraged
and indifferent under the continual
strain, and what might have been
a hkppy homo was a desolate one,
and its memory is a nightmare to
the children to-day.
Understand yourself and your Di
vine possibilities and you will cease
to think you are misunderstood.
It is not possible to misunderstand
a beautiful, sunny day. All nature
rejoices in its loveliness.
Give love, cheerfulness, kindness
and good-will to all humanity, and
you need not worry about being mis
understood. Give the best you have to each
object, purpose and individual, and
you will eventually receive the best
from humanity.
