I have been a catholic for a year or so. I think I want to pursue a medicine when I get older. The problem is, that I already seem to have a problem with pride. Everytime I get a good grade or so on, I feel like bragging about it. And I know it’s a sin, and I don’t want to keep doing it, but I certaintly have a hard time stopping. I think that stop doing that sin would be even harder if I choose to pursue my dream, which is medicine. So, the question is what I should do about it. I think that pursuing medicine is what I really want, but I don’t want to commit a mortal sin. And I have went to confession several times, trying to defeat the sin. So what do you guys think that I should do? I have quite a hard time trying to figure it out.
Thanks for answering. God bless!
