First it gets better, then it gets worse, then it gets different.
~ 12-step program saying

10th Step Prayer
God remove the selfishness, dishonesty, resentment and fear that has cropped up in my life right now. Help me to discuss this with someone immediately and make amends quickly if I have harmed anyone. Help me to cease fight anything and anyone. Show me where I may be helpful to someone else. Help me react sanely; not cocky or afraid. How can I best serve You? – Your will, not mine be done. AMEN
