You have sought out the virtuous life.
It is not a common path for a reason.
Most seek it, but temptation is everywhere.
Temptations of comfort, pleasure, and ego.
Our base urges constantly on our heels.
Realize that they will always be there.
And it will always be uncomfortable to fight them back.
That will never change.
So don’t be surprised when they resurface.
Or worse, curse your nature.
Because there have been men like you who have fought it daily.
That've used discomfort as a beacon towards virtue
And seen discomfort as spiritual growth.
Learn from them and act accordingly.
