How detailed do confessions have to be?
I assume they don’t have to be super detailed and you can give as much or as little detail as you want, as long as you state the sin you committed. This would still be valid?
For instance, you can say you were extremely rude to a family member multiple times, without saying what you said to them, or in what way exactly you were rude to them. Or you could say that you stole from somebody but would not have to say what you stole. Stealing is stealing right?
Also, do you think it makes a difference if you don’t want to go into details because it embarrases you? Would that be considered not to a good enough reason to not go into detail? To be honest, I assume this is probably the main reason people do not want to go into detail about sins. For instance you can say you had impure thoughts, without having to actually say what exactly you were thinking of or imagining.
