I'm currently working on my sixth step. I just wanted to see if anyone else deals with a few of the character defects that I do. I'm also wondering what I will be like if God removes these defects of character. What is the appropriate way to act in these situations? What is the normal, socially acceptable, moral way to act and think. Judgment – I often judge people before I ever get to know them. I pre-judge many people who have tattoos, body-piercings, Mohawks, look gothic or punk or biker-associated. I will usually pre-judge these people and it takes a while before I decide in my head that I see them as cool. I also judge anyone that looks like a frat-boy or a sorority girl, or real nerdy. People fall into categories easily in my head. Whenever I see a guy and a girl, I will usually find some way in which I feel superior to the guy, and think to myself he isn’t good enough to be with the girl. Acting Out: I act out on this defect just about every day as well. Every time I see someone that looks out of the ordinary for some particular reason, I judge. My mind judges quite frequently, and wonders why people do the strange things they do. A good example would be Bob, if I saw him on the street, I’d judge him very quickly, and I would think he is a skinhead. I would do this, even though it turns out he’s a really nice guy. Lust – I often just look at girls as sex objects all day, see if I can’t get a glimpse under a girl’s skirt who is sitting down. I check out girls that are teenagers too, even though I shouldn’t be doing so. I find it somehow hard to treat a girl just like a normal person or one of my buddies if she is really cute. High school girls are the worst, I don’t even like being around them oftentimes, because I’ll be so tempted to check them out, even though I know I’m not supposed to be doing so. Acting Out: I act out on this defect every day. I check girls out at school, at the rec center, at meetings, while driving, anywhere. I guess it’s not really appropriate to constantly stare, but sometimes it’s hard not to. The thoughts I have sometimes get out of control too, I would really like to cut down the amount of checking out I do of younger girls. If I could just do what I have to do, and ignore all the hot girls around me, I think things would go better for me. OT seems to have a slight obsession with jailbait, so maybe some of you can relate Anyways, hopefully someone else a slight case of either of these defects so I don't feel like such a weirdo!
