One Point, Wife

My wife shot a hole through one of my favorite pastimes (if measured by time dedicated to) the other day.

She said my constant tearing down of myself, the endless self-loathing, was in direct conflict with something that I hold even more dear. That being the Gospel; wherein Jesus already covered all of my failures, specifically so I wouldn't have the luxury of focussing so totally on myself & my shortcomings (there's a lot of safety & comfort there, you see).  

Now, you're stupid if you don't think I know that already. But there was just something different about hearing it from her. I had been found out; I was forced to look in the mirror another had held up. It's easy to ignore my own mirror, but if I know someone else is onto me I gotta reevaluate the whole thing.
