Pride. I think that I am better than I really am. I believe in my abilities, maybe more than I should. I believe that I am young and have infinite potential and that I am invincible sometimes. I feel immense pride on doing little things. Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

Lust. I give in to the pleasures that my body crave. I am excessively attracted to him. I want to hold him and feel his warmth. I feel lust and misinterpret it for love. Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

Envy. I envy rich, spoiled kids. I envy people in love. I envy the boy who gets everything he wants and the girl with the perfect life. Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

Gluttony. I have a limitless appetite for food and drink. I know that somewhere in the world there is a baby dying of starvation and yet, I consume more than that is required. I feel addicted to the things I should not be. Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.

Greed. I feel overwhelming greed for the material things of the world. I feel greed for knowledge, and greed for money. Greed for love and greed for power. Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

Sloth. Its a task to face the world, and its people. I find it easier to remain in bed when its dark and when there is light- When its day and when its night. Forgive me Father, for I have sinned.

Wrath. I feel immense anger towards those who wrong me, out of weakness or actual malice. I feel uncontrolled hatred. I spurn love and opt instead for fury.
Forgive me Father for I have sinned.

Forgive me Father, for I have broken God’s law and deserve eternal damnation.

Forgive me Father, for I am only human. TC mark
