How grateful I am to have been healed of a tendency to be unduly critical of others! The criticism was not always verbal, but was at times simply self-righteous thought.

For a period of time I taught school in overseas countries. While I had dear friends, I kept myself from being too friendly with many of my fellow workers, silently finding reasons for my actions. Finally I taught in a non-English-speaking country where I felt I had little in common with those around me. I was very lonely and unhappy. I realized I had to change my thought about the situation and see man as the expression of God. A Christian Science practitioner was praying for me, as I knew I needed to lift myself out of the unhappiness and self-centeredness in which I had been indulging. I spent much time studying the Bible, together with Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I also began to read biographies of Mrs. Eddy. These biographies helped me to see the great love Mrs. Eddy had for mankind. I was filled with love for this dear woman, who so unselfishly, through many trials, gave her discovery, Christian Science, to the world. I began to appreciate the friends I had and to enjoy their company; but much more, I learned the value of quiet study and time spent alone with God.
