Spiritual Practice is a B*tch

Spiritual practice is a b*tch, no matter what anyone tells you. The minute you begin to pay attention to who you are and how you are is the exact same minute that you notice every single fault and failure and shortcoming you have. Which is hard. Really hard. The romance around spirituality is that you will feel peaceful, calm and relaxed all the time, that you will have magical access to a new you. But the reality is that YOU are exactly what you have to work with, and meditation, mindfulness, breathing and relaxation techniques - none of it provides an escape. And it's not supposed to.
