Strength to suffer fools and bear up to unfairly inflicted personal injury.
Goddess give me strength to consider the source when someone hurts me rather than to take anger into my soul.
Goddess help me to listen to the person's words and honestly evaluate their truth in relationship to me.
But keep me safe from drinking another person's poison or from taking into my heart a blackness that is not mine.
Goddess give me strength for I cannot do your work if I cannot bear up to the anger and pettiness that will inevitably come my way when I touch people's deepest wounds.
I wish to know and accept myself and others in the light of day, warts and all.
Truth can hurt but eventually it will set me free.
Give me strength to live with truth.
