I was talking with my friend one time because she was upset from something I had done. She mentioned that she was disappointed and surprised because it was not something I would expect of myself. I acknowledged my mistake, but I feel that I have grown to let go of expectations of myself. I did not feel worked up about it, but kind of accepting of my mistake. I am not accepting wrong or bad behavior, but I understand that I am sinner and that I will always fail. However, I know that I must run back to God to give me strength and make me new again. It is a different and unusual feeling, however, because I would usually be disappointed in myself for doing something wrong. I do not recall or I am unsure what the source of those feelings are, whether it is pride or a sense of approval in the eyes of others. Overall, I would like some guidance about my current feelings. I do not know if this sort of contentment is from the devil or if I am growing in my spiritual relationship with God in regards to humility or such.
