The Real Trap

‘Over the years, I have come to realize that the greatest trap in our life is not success, popularity, or power but self-rejection. Success, popularity, and power can indeed present a great temptation but their seductive quality often comes from the way they are part of the much larger temptation to self-rejection. When we have come to believe in the voices that call us worthless and unlovable then success, popularity, and power are easily perceived as attractive solutions. The real trap however is self-rejection.’

Henri J.M. Nouwen
Dutch-born Catholic Priest and Writer

Life Is A Mystery
