I am a 16 year old male, and basically I am worried about Sloth.
Well heres my general day, I get up at 7am, get ready and leave for school, have the whole day at school, walk home, when I get home I eat dinner, then feed my dog while my parents wash up, after that there generally isn’t much to do. So I find myself spending roughly 4 hours on my laptop either playing video games or watching films and such and then I go to bed.
And on weekends I pretty much spend most of my time on my laptop as well with the exclusion of Church and dinner, my personality isn’t the kind that enjoys spending time outside shop corners and there aren’t many youth clubs in which for me to go.
And I realised Sloth is laziness and I’m not sure as whether my lifestyle is laziness, I mean I ask my parents if they need a hand with anything and they say no.
So Am I committing Sloth by living my lifestyle, I mean most of my real friends are pretty much doing the same thing and we talk to each other.
But can anyone tell me if I am committing Sloth and if so is there anything I can do about it, because I’m not exactly and outgoing sort of person and I’m not sporty so sports clubs are out of the question.
Does Sloth just mean lazy with faith or in general? I pray every morning and night and go to Church on weekends. Point is can anyone tell me if this is Sloth or what Sloth actually is.
Any answers would be appreciated.
Edit: I also procrastinate, I mean I have exams I know I should study, but I can’t just sit down and just read a book and take in the information I end up getting bored and when I’m bored I end up day dreaming, I wish I could just revise but I always end up getting side tracked or distracted.
I mean sometimes I leave my homework to that last minute and things but, the major ones like my Course Work for GCSE’s and AS levels I get done earlier. I’m not failing my classes getting mostly B’s and C’s nothing lower than a C but I don’t know I don’t like procrastinating but I can only revise for say 10 mins before getting side tracked
