Seven deadly sins

Brad Pitt’s film “Seven” drew attention to the seven deadly sins – Envy, Sloth, Gluttony, Wrath, Pride, Lust and Greed.

Envy can make us miserably jealous of the good fortune of others
Sloth makes us malingerers, too lazy to do much
Gluttony causes overeating and drunkenness creating obesity and alcoholism
Wrath shows up as violence towards others, property and road rage
Pride can get in the way of living with integrity and humility
Lust is that insatiable sexual feeling which could instead be passion
Greed also can cause us to want more that we need

All of these feelings can be reframed or modified to be of benefit to us rather than harm.
