When it's hard to face others

Lord, there are days when I just don’t want to face others, and all the demands they can make, days when I feel all knotted-up inside and I just want to hide away.

Others seem to manage so well and to relish the challenges of life!

They cope with the limelight so easily, and meet new situations and people with such confidence.

Then I think no, behind many a smile there lies a lonely heart.
