So I went to confession on Monday and one of the things that I confessed was self harm. Basically the way I put it was that I had never exactly cut after a certain occasion, but I had self harmed in other ways on two other occasions.
The problem is there were more than two occasions. I went in with a written list, and when I wrote the list, I was thinking of two specific occasions. But then I realized that there were more than two other occasions (at this point I would guess at maybe 5 or 6, though I only remember 2 specific occasions), this was the day before I went. But I forgot to change it on the list. Then when I was actually in confession, I was reading that line and I did remember that there had been more than two other occasions, but I just kept on going. I didn’t want to go back and reiterate so I just said “at least, that I can remember” because although I did know that I had committed the act more than twice, I could only specifically call to mind those two occasions.
So that was a disaster.
