    Out of the 7 sins. With which one do you struggle the most?

    wrath

    greed

    sloth

    pride

    lust

    envy

    gluttony


    For me its definitely envy/jealousy.. It's my strongest negative emotion. I hate it, but can't help it..

    Envy and Lust.

    I used to be a very jealous person and very flirtatious. I've both under control now icon_smile.gif

    To me, envy is different from jealousy.

    Mine is definitely gluttony. Mmmmm, ice cream. Cheese. Fine wine. Trying to lose the holiday weight before the 13th is driving me insane. icon_cry.gif

    Lust, but I'm trying to work through it.

    I'm praying everyday, and doing a novena everyday. Some days are worse than others, but not much I can do about it.

    I dont quite see why PRIDE, WRATH and LUST are "sinful" or wrong, but i guess if its taken to the extreme it can be harmful.
    Anyway, if i had to choose one, it'll be

    Haha, are we to describe why we suffer these sins the most?

    Well I've never spoken to anyone in wrath, I've conquered sloth and gluttony after decades of suffering those, I'm content to put lust aside to wait for the man I need, I don't make enough to be greedy, and humility is a trait I strive daily to cultivate against pride...

    ... but... It's been easy for me to envy certain kinds of people. I envy a guy whose fitness is effortless... I have envied men who came out earlier in life and experienced the life I wish I had... I have envied people who were manifestly excellent, successful, and happy in the career they chose... And I've often envied beautiful gay couples who seem to have found happiness, built memories, and laid the foundations of a life together while I stumbled through a relationship wilderness alone.

    The only cure for Envy is Thankfulness. Envy is a sin that distracts us from the many blessings we've already received and makes us treat what we already have like garbage as we pine for something else. It's why my main struggle is to be thankful.

    Most? Golly, I'm guilty of all.
    To pick one, well, that's just prideful and arrogant. LOL

    I am working on gluttony - but right now, my challenge is lust. Which shows in the fact that I have spent nearly all of my christmas vacation here on RJ.

    I am only jealous of people who are prettier than me.

    I don't think most people are dramatically smarter than me. I feel like if I put all of my energy into being rich I could do that and I grew up pretty comfortably so I'm not jealous of money either.

    But I think if I see someone who is a lot more attractive then me I get frustrated by the knowledge that even if I put all of my energy into being better looking that the person I would just hit a wall and not be able to do it. icon_evil.gif
