Sometimes I get a clear reflection of myself through some realization or someone saying something. Then I am appalled at the insensitivity and self-centredness I see in me. Even just the lack of clarity of thought. You really think you are doing well… or trying hard to do well anyway.
But I guess my pride gets in the way. And since it is “pride” we are talking about, it is sneaky about letting you realize it is consuming you.
