In our HELP! SITUATION SPOTLIGHT™ series, we shine the light on challenges that community members have shared with me. This episode is, “I am addicted to self pity!”
Addiction is an awful state to be in (no matter whether it is caused by choices, brain chemistry, traumatic events, or any other catalyst). The perception of being unable to control yourself is frightening and destructive. Whether it is food, finance, romance, substances, or any other issue it is a scary place to be to struggle for control of yourself. Some advise you to ceed control to others (people and/ or entities), others advise you to take control (“get yourself together!”). We explore questions and share perspectives and potential solutions on this show so I encourage you to do so for yourself. What is the best way for someone to handle an addiction to their own thoughts of self-pity?
pit·y - “a strong feeling of sadness or sympathy for someone or something” (Merriam-Webster)
self–pity - “a feeling of pity for yourself because you believe you have suffered more than is fair or reasonable” (Merriam-Webster)
What is fair or reasonable for a person to suffer? Why should you not be burdened by pain? Why should you visit your pain on other people (which now causes more pain for them)? Let’s delve into this murky mess of self-pity addicts.

In walking through the 7 Steps to Freedom From Oppression, self pity is something that the Devil will constantly try to draw you into. So many times we have seen it sabotage the most courageous and persistent. What is self pity? How do you recognize the 'symptoms'. Is it demonic? What are the effects of it on you? Today we want to expose this danger for what it really is.
To access the study notes on self-pity used in today's program go to:
We've all felt sorry for ourselves from time to time. Many people in the Bible did also, so this is not some abnormal experience. The most successful of people have times of self pity. Why is feeling sorry for yourself so dangerous spiritually? Have you checked up on yourself to see how often you do this? Self pity makes the soul sick. And may lead to suicide. People oppressed with depression for years get this habit and don't even realize it. Working on the book, "7 Steps to Freedom" with Pat Buckley, he emphasizes over and over the danger of self pity. I felt the need to address this spiritual problem directly. If you don't ever feel sorry for yourself, listen and learn to help someone else.

On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Is it in the same class as the original? Why were two original stories written for the film? Why didn’t the filmmakers simply adapt another of Frank Miller’s classic Sin City stories? Is the final product worthy of its impressive ensemble cast? Are audiences still interested? Did Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller wait too long to make the sequel? Should they simply have moved on to other projects and allowed the original film to stand alone? Does the original even still hold up? Has it been surpassed by other graphic novel adaptations over the past nine years? Can the Sin City films be considered shallow exercises in style? Can they also be considered childish and misogynistic?

Self-pity where a person feels bad for themselves being all alone

AM I MY BROTHER'S KEEPER?
Luke 10:31-37Amplified Bible (AMP)
31 Now by [d]coincidence a certain priest was going down along that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.
32 A Levite likewise came down to the place and saw him, and passed by on the other side [of the road].
33 But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled along, came down to where he was; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity and sympathy [for him],
34 And went to him and dressed his wounds, pouring on [them] oil and wine. Then he set him on his own beast and brought him to an inn and took care of him.
35 And the next day he took out two denarii [two day’s wages] and gave [them] to the innkeeper, saying, Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, I [myself] will repay you when I return.
36 Which of these three do you think proved himself a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?
37 He answered, The one who showed pity and mercy to him. And Jesus said to him, Go and do likewise.
Tonight we're discussing Motivation and how a positive attitude impacts your life. We all have a choice. We can choose an inner dialogue of self-encouragement and self-motivation, or we can choose one of self-defeat and self-pity. It’s a power we all have. Each of us encounters hard times, hurt feelings, heartache, and physical and emotional pain. The key is to realize it’s not what happens to you that matters; it’s how you choose to respond. Habitual bad attitudes are often the product of past experiences and events. Common causes include low self-esteem, stress, fear, resentment, anger and an inability to handle change. It takes serious work to examine the roots of a harmful attitude, but the rewards of ridding ourselves of this heavy baggage can last a lifetime. 818-495-6975
What if we told you that Monsters are very real - and they are among us? They have overrun the streets of the Ghettos and slums. Their reach extends to the gated communities of your suburban neighborhoods. They infest the schools attended by your children. Even at this very moment a Monster may be lurking in your own home. Monsters are vicious and cruel! Monsters are destructive and horrifyingly evil! Monsters are heartless and have an utter contempt for all life! Monsters do not show pity to old or young. Monsters do not fear the laws of God or Man. Monsters live by no code and respect no authority. Monsters cannot feel guilt or shame, nor can they feel sympathy or empathy. Monsters exist only to feed their own ungodly lust with no care for consequences. They attack on a whim. They harm others because they can. And they kill for fun! To see the faces of these Monsters, one need only tune in to your local news. From Gang violence to school shootings, rapes, robberies, murders and random acts of unprovoked violence – the generation of today’s youth have been transformed to the stuff of nightmares. The Holy Bible tells us that in the last days unclean women would give birth to Monsters! But how did this happen? When did it begin? And what enemy is to blame? Join us today for another installment of “From Darkness to Light” as we use the Word of the Holy Bible to expose the evil that has corrupted a generation, giving rise to our greatest fears.
