My feeling would be that if you feel like you should, go. Even if you've committed no mortal sins that totally separate you from God, venial sins can weaken that relationship and make you more vulnerable to commit a mortal sin in the future. Plus, with absolution, you get to know for sure that you are forgiven. There are so many benefits to confession! It is a lesson in humility and many times the priest can give advise to help you overcome that sin.
Enjoy that feeling of absolution! It's a great one!
This is probably the best advice. Going more often is better than less often.
People so often get hung up on the details of confession and miss the larger benefit. The OP is a case in point. She sems to feel that she need not, or should not, go to confession unless she has something "serious" to confess. NOthing could be farther from the truth.
I don't know the OP, but her comment here, "*...i know I must do it if i did something wrong *", concerns me. How many of us are living our lives without doing "something wrong"? Something that is contrary to the Great Law of Love?
Careful examination of conscience can bring to light groups of little things that add up to bigger things. For instance a number of seemingly insignificant "hostile" thoughts can point toward a problem with the deadly sin of Anger. Same way the other deadly sins like Envy, Pride, Lust, Gluttony and so on.
Looking at these and then discussiong them with your confessor can help you to grow in holiness. You don't need to stick with the formulaic listing of sins - in fact such "rote" kind of confessing is, in my opinion, not very beneficial. Rather than reeling off a list of samll sins, or skipping confession because you haven't any gross sins, look for teh underlying causes of the small sins and then confess these. Talk with your confessor about overcoming the deeper issues instead of assuming that because you haven't done anything serious, that you are okee-dokey.
Also, talking about these things, and confession regularly lets you tell your confessor when you are making progress. A relationship grows where your confessor knows you well and you know him. Discussion of your journey into holiness becomes easier and more joyful.
Having said the above I also note a fear on the OP's part about going to confession. Not sure why she is afraid, but there is nothing like familiarity to drive out fear. The more often one goes to confession the easier it becomes.
Please avail yourself of ALL that confession has to offer.
