For the times I gave a bad example and people followed it.
For my indifference to the suffering of my neighbor.
For not offering words of praise, recognition, and encouragement to those who deserved and needed them.
For quickly taking credit for my successes, but blaming the circumstances for my failures. 
For not respecting the innocence of a person, or for hindering the dreams of another.
For having spent money on things I did not need and never used.
For the times I took too long to forgive others and didn’t make a big enough effort to do it faster.
For taking advantage of those who loved me, simply for selfish motives.
For not guiding well those whom I should have educated better before it was too late.
For not visiting or spending more time with my neighbor, because I didn’t find him sufficiently interesting, educated, or useful.
For wasting so much time on useless things — time which is lost forever.
For enjoying flattery, even when I knew it was false.
For complaining more often than I gave thanks.
For the coarse, vulgar, or rude words that came out of my mouth.
For participating in conversations that mocked God, the Faith, or the Church.
For the many times I ran from the cross.
For the promises I didn’t fulfill.
For the moments I could’ve and should’ve prayed more and, above all, loved more.
For ignoring Jesus.
For hurting my neighbor in one way or another.
For not loving enough – because I should’ve loved God and my neighbor much more.
