Encourage you, when to do so would be completely hypocritical on my part?
Tell you to hang in there, and this too shall pass, when I'm not sure I even believe that myself?
Urge you to press into the hope of change when I'm really beginning to believe that most people don't change? We all just speak of what we'd like to become without ever putting forth the effort or time to become just that?
Just professing my doubt...
