I just want to see the difference in responses to the thread "How would you currently rate yourself as a catholic?
In some ways I’m better than I was in my thirtees. I’m more allergic to “some” sins than others. I was less aware of how evil was working in me then . I think I had sins more associated with desiring status and recognition. Now my sins centre more round misanthropy than anything else. Withdrawal from society is dangerous. potentially it can lead to growth. In my case there has been some growth but also obsessions about what happened in the past. Rumination is sinful and I need to lose it.
On a happier note, I have improved my fingerstyle guitar skill to the point of awe. Maybe I’m amazed how well I play Maybe I’m Amazed. Over the last 2 years I have become much more Bible literate and also Catholic literate, reading some apologetics as well. As one poster yesterday said poignantly “I have some head knowledge. Now I need the heart knowledge.”
I’ve made a lot of progress leaving behind some things…but they have still left their mark. I do better in some areas than others…but ultimately if I had to give myself a score, given all my past mistakes, present mistakes, and things I know about myself, MAYBE at MOST a 5/10.
I was recently given a 5 Star inferiority complex rating from our local chapter of the Self-Abasement Guild. So I’ve got that going for me.
Pick of the litter.
Cream of the crop.
God’s gift to everyone.
As we get older, we don’t necessarily become better people. We just find new ways to sin.

SacredBassist was the one who said it not me.
That’s creeping me out.
I currently would give myself a rating of potato.
After lunch is my Achilles’ Heel time of the day. Between 1 and 2 o’clock.
Definitely “needs improvement” . Now don’t get me started on the “where/what part” cause the list is long. LOL.
It’s not for me to employ ego and rate myself. It is God who will do so
