Contempt and Self-Contempt

The contempt of others is often joined by our self-contempt.  We judge ourselves even more severely than our enemies.  Our enemy starts the fire, but we add the fuel.  The blaze consumes our remaining dignity, until we are tired of the voice of accusation resounding in our heads — then, we get busy and noisy.  We silence the accusations with the five thousand songs on our iPod that play in a random, unpredictable order. -Dan Allender, Sabbath, pg. 168
