Terrible cruelty

People who reject repentance are showing terrible cruelty towards themselves. Dreadful dislike and hatred of themselves, if they disregard repentance. People who are cruel to themselves can’t help but be cruel to other people as well. People who are kind to themselves through the acceptance of repentance, are, at the same time, kinds to others, too.
