Lent

It's a failure. I'm getting off the wagon tomorrow after work. The reason why is need-to-know and I'm hoping I can shed this damn secrecy soon because it's making the stress worse.

...well, thoughts & prayers in spite of it all, and whether you value 'em or not at the moment.

I've heard it argued one could benefit more from failing at one's fasting discipline than from succeeding--there's no humility in figuring one could do this all under one's own power, right? But I suppose it all depends...

in any case, I certainly hope it's resolved soon, whatever it is...

I hope they have an answer for you soon.

I've always considered certain deprivational observances to actually be detrimental to what one is seeking during Lent, because often Pride accompanies the boasting about what one is missing. The one year (early on in MCC) when I actually did do something, I didn't wear ANY jewelry for the duration (and I packed the biggest, gaudiest earrings to wear on Easter Sunday).

Don't think of it as failure; you did try, after all. Which means a willingness of the heart.

Anyway, {{{{{HUGS}}}}}.

Pride and "willingness to admit failure" isn't the problem here. I chose the wrong discipline for this particular Lent, is all.

Maintaining a stiff upper lip is probably a better one right now.

I can ring you any time you want. I don't know your schedule, but any time you want to text or talk, just say the word.
