I have issues with the following: impatience, self-importance, pride, and envy.
Through experience, I know they’re wrong and only leads to inner turmoil, disturbance of peace, coldness, bitterness, resentment, and distance from God and lack of desire for any spiritual thing (e.g., I feel terrible - I’m not going to pray, it’s pointless.)
Pride is the greatest sin, and I can’t seem to rid myself of it.
Part of it is insecurity (e.g., Will I be fired?); part of it is just my cruddy disposition to judge others and be envious of their successes.
I’ve found that when I’m tempted with prideful thoughts, if I find something to do and get distracted, I can at least avoid lingering on pride.
What else can I do practically speaking?
Also, it feels so pointless confessing pride but I never seem to do any better…
