Should you frequently confess even if you don’t have real regrets or should you only confess once you have real regrets?.Regardless of whether you confessed yourself with real regrets if you confess yourself on a weekly basis and if it’s at least marginally helps you be more mindful of when you sin should you keep doing that even when your regret (arguably) isn’t “deep enough”?.Do you do this even if what you sin “isn’t really a big dealing?” (ex.your only two sins that whole weeks were getting angry and swearing).These are the sort of questions that’ve been hitting me lately.
See yestreday I tried to go to a different church then the one I ussually go to for confession.I know this might so sound “bad” in a way but I ussually like to “rotate” btw which church’s I’m confessing at since I don’t like the same priest knowing I’m back so soon the next week around .I didn’t get to confess myself yestreday since the bus took me more off track then I thought it would.I was going to confess about a “certain impurity” problem which I’ve “sunk in” more today -_-.Here’s the thing though (and I
I don’t feel that bad (although there’s dozens of reasons why I should) partly b/c I’m reluctant to regret and I’m actually having trouble regretting b/c past experiences of regret include ussually being mentally groggy and frustrated with myself for a whole week,bitterly thinking how I deserve such punishment I interpret as coming with all this intefering with school stuff until I finally confess myself at the end of the week.This in turn makes me sin further and further b/c regret (where I mainly feel like I’m being pelted with rocks with fingers pointing/loudly yelling at me) is something I’ve developed sort of an aversion to.
Even once I confess with some level of regret I wouldn’t really say that my attempts at not doing it again are that good b/c…well I go to a whole different forum to explain that .For my “visual impurity” I* talk the talk* about how it’s bad but don’t walk the walk -_-…not really.
Also on certain special occasions (like recently) I get a tad “supersitious” (arguably --) with when I confess.For instance last week since it was the start of a new semester and I wanted to start off blank slate I wanted to confess myself but actually couldn’t think of enough things that are “big enough deal” to confess (-- yeah I know that sounds really stupid).
