Yes, that's how I feel, too. As I struggle to live more like Christ, I am constantly reminded of my own meanness that comes out sometimes. And, that hurts much more than not being good at math or having issues interpreting social cues. Isn't it great that when we are "born again" in Christ, we can leave our former lives behind?
