The Seven Deadly Sins and I

July 4, 2016

The other day, I was observing how one person has too much Pride.
It’s super obvious & noticeable.
As if it’s written on their face with a permanent marker.

In that moment, I was glad not to have Pride.
(Maybe that in itself is Pride??)

Then I noticed another person has Envy.
Again, super obvious on their face, eyes, curve of their mouth, their actions.
Everything about them screams, I AM ENVIOUS.

By now, I was really happy I don’t have those two ailments.

Then my mind, as it usually does, got to thinking.
Well, it can’t be that I have zero sins, that’s just not humanly possible.

(*code red* proceed with caution, said another part of my brain.)

Ignoring the warning bells, I pulled up the good ol google to search the so called seven deadly sins.

And bam!
Realized I had also been infected!!

Like when you run a malware cleaner just for the heck of it and find all those trojans that you thought only the dum dums get.

I got saddled with those fuckers Gluttony, Lust, & Sloth.
A sprinkling of Anger too, though that fire has died down considerably over the years.

Luckily, I’ve been spared of Greed.
I don’t think I could’ve carried him on my back also with the other four heavy fucks.

It’s not that I’m some sort of a monk and I love working on my issues. It’s simply that I’m too aware of the flaws by now that I can’t not work on them. They’re just too obvious and annoying, like a popcorn kernel stuck in your throat.

Anyways, I don’t have anything more to say.
Good luck with your ailments and wish me luck with mine.
