I’ve seen many other threads with good advice for resisting sins of impurity, but I thought It might help me to give a little info. about myself, for personalized help.
I’m 14, so I struggle with some things a bit differently, because of sexual immaturity I don’t necessarily suffer from ‘lust’ after the other sex, per-se. I’m very narcissistic, though. I love the way I look, am very over-confident in my abilities, and seem to ‘provoke’ myself into sin. (Weird, I s’pose)
Being an only child, I’m a tad spoiled, too. I usually let mom do the everyday chores and I fail to take on responsibility.
Immature, in a word, describes me well.
I attend public school, and fancy myself more of the intellectual, though. We attempted the Ann Seaton Homeschool Curriculum for about a month, but I really missed my friends and became rather depressed, as well a stubborn when it came time to work.
I act silly with friends, and joke often. Though I do perform well in most educational subjects.
Sadly, I realize the extent of evil in my sins, yet commit them anyway.
Just today I got rid of my T.V. in my room, hope that helps.
I was raised and christened Anglican, but my mom and I later drifted away for obvious reasons. I attend a Presbyterian Church with my grandparents for awhile, and joined there while we attended. However, study of Catholicism and it’s theology drew me in, I love the Church and I find it very beautiful. I’m now in RCIA.
I pray the Rosary off and on, say daily prayers, wear a Brown Scapular, and have many medals. Nothing seems to help, it comes down to me wanting to commit the sin, sadly. I’m not sure what I should do. I frequent confession, (As I needed to make First Confession before Easter anyway, and the priest allows it.), and speak with a Spiritual Director about this, also.
Sorry for giving you my life story, but I thought It would help you get to know me a tad better for my direct advice.
Anyway, Pax Christi.
