Do Not Let Yourself Be Dejected by Your Fall

"If you happen to commit some fault, correct yourself gently by humbling yourself before God. Admit your misery, but do not let yourself be dejected by your fall. Is there any wonder than infirmity is infirm, weakness weak and misery wretched? Nevertheless, detest with all your heart your offense of God. With great courage and confidence in His mercy, return to the path of virtue you had abandoned."

Saint Francis of Sales Introduction to the Devout Life
