Whenever I feel frazzled, over-aroused (as Highly Sensitive People easily feel), or like I'm revving the gas pedal while desperately yanking up the hand break, I turn to one of these prayers.
They actually work! With repetition of course.
1. Serenity Prayer
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Please forgive me.
I love you.
3. From Teresa of Avila
Let nothing disturb you
Let nothing frigthen you
All things pass away
God never changes
Patience obtains all thing
He who has God finds he lacks for nothing
God alone suffices
