Pity Party

Here is the definition:(urban dictionary)

A way of experiencing grief, in which you spend your time feeling sorry for
yourself and whining endlessly about how icky(edited out a word I'd rather not use) your life is. Pity parties can
be just for one or for many people, such as maybe your friends and close people,
who will try to comfort you or just be there for you while you keep asking
yourself what did you do to deserve whatever it is that made you so sad in the
first place Pity Parties require the proper outfit, which is usually pajamas
cause you don't get all dressed up during those feeling-sorry-for-myself moments.
Also you should have no make up on or just the one from the night before; hair
undone as well. It also involves tissues, comfort food such as ice cream;
chocolate; potato chips; cookies; cake
and candy. Low fat food
is banned. The purpose of a Pity Party is to dump the pity.

Now, we even see pity parties in the Bible. For example, David had a few. Feeling sorry for one's self is normal. I don't have them that often, but once in a while I do. It is during the pity party one can humble one's self and cry out to God. Pity parties can be beneficial if you use them to cry out to the Lord. God understands our griefs and sorrows. A pity party is not necessarily a griping session. He said to cast our cares on Him.

So, go ahead.....once in a while....have a pity party but remember the way to have a pity party is to do it and get it over with. Don't dwell there. Then cast your cares on the burden bearer, His shoulders are strong enough.
