I don't like the idea of self-imposed meanness, but I've been thinking I need to be tougher on myself. More disciplined, more demanding. I'm naturally opposed to public humiliation, and I don't want to ask my friends to berate me when I miss my own deadlines. Coincidentally, today at Mass, the priest pointed out there is a difference between rough love and tough love. He says we can toe the line with gentleness and kindness. It's worth a try.
