I Don’t Know What to Give Up (or Do) For Lent.

lent_6316cFor Christians everywhere the time of year is coming up when we have to either give up something for lent or we have to do something for lent. I have done so much of both, I don’t know what to do.

I won’t lie, a part of me is really sick of having to think of ideas each lent. I get tired of having to sacrifice something, or having to do something. I’m lazy, a huge part of me just wants to not care or worry about it. I just don’t want to. I have been Catholic all my life and right now, I just don’t want to think about that.

Giving up food seems superficial, forcing myself to do something doesn’t seem like a fun idea either.

Before any Christians get up in arms about me not wanting to do something or giving up something, yes I know that I should. Jesus sacrificed his life for mine. The least I can do is do something or make a sacrifice for the next 40 days and 40 nights. You don’t have to post angry, righteous posts. I already know the arguments. I’m just getting this out.

I hope I’m not the only one that hasn’t felt this way, I know it is very unlikely that I am the only one that feels this way. Still though, I just feel a little disheartened by this topic.

Have you ever felt this way? Do you know what you are giving up for lent? Let me know in the comments below.
