Hi all. I just returned from confession, my first in six years, I'm very happy to have gone but during it I was extremely nervous. I feel like I left things out, and I wasn't sorry enough to be forgiven. The nervousness overtook me and I was worried more about getting through it than being remorseful. I sure was remorseful going in but one I knelt it was just uneasiness. I also feel like God hasn't forgiven me. Can someone give me some guidance here?
I'm sure you had enough contrition, don't worry about it. If you really forgot stuff, don't worry about that either this particular confession is still valid. You will have to confess as you remember stuff, but stuff that is really forgotten at the time does not invalidate a particular confession.
Congratulations Tom, I had a gap as long as my first reconciliation to when I was in my 30s. The sacrament wasn't well demonstrated in my home, and to be honest I had little interest in it of my own volition. I know what it's like to have a long wait between confessions. (For the record, I go much more frequently and desire to go every week if possible).
