THERE CAN BE NO EXCEPTIONS

Sometimes in human experience one is tempted to accept the belief that he possesses a difficulty which is his master. He may think little about the intruding thought at first, but on later reflection he may become convinced of its importance, especially after it has appeared several times in succession. Instead of detecting the worthlessness of the questionable suggestion at the outset, and stamping it out, he may be swept under by its seemingly cumulative effect.

If a tenacious belief claims to develop, he becomes frightened and thinks that his life is marked by one special obstacle, and that no one is as troubled as he is. In self-pity he avers that everything in life would be grand and glorious were it not for this one accursed torment. Convinced, he despairingly says, "You see, my situation is unique; my case is different."
