Se7en Deadly Sins

Its about to be a new year...so i decided that since people like to do
"resolutions" how bout lets see where you can correct your mistakes at
with the 7 DEADLY SINS..(the grammar was so horrible <--) and these are in order..of severity..


1.Pride

What is it: Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities, that interferes with the individual's recognition of the grace of God. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. Pride is also known as Vanity.

Why you do it: Well-meaning elementary school teachers told you to "believe in yourself."

The Cure: stop getting a big head when someone tells you something good about yourself or Humility

2.Envy

What is it: Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation.

Why you do it: Because other people are so much luckier, smarter, more attractive, and better than you. But is anyone ever really satisfied with themselves?I think not

The Cure: avoid mirrors & pop culture--period or Kindness

3. Wrath( I def. do this one)
