There is in none of us so much good that there is not a little evil, nor in any of us so much evil that there Is not some good. The devil can inspire and even encourage evil, but the devil is not the origin of it – we are.

Can I accept what is bad in me? Can I embrace what is good in me? Can I distinguish the difference and live with the dissonance?

O Jesus, help me to love myself as God loves me – entirely and constantly. May Your Spirit help me to accept myself for who I am.
