There is a person in my life whom I’ll call Anon. She is a good Christian (as far as what she understands being a Christian means as a Baptist), and there is nothing that I can place my finger on that is intrinsically “bad” about her. However, I get this nagging feeling to avoid her like the plague, and have stopped accepting her phone calls and have basically been avoiding her at all costs.
I normally don’t base decisions on my feelings, because those change depending on the day and the weather and circumstances, but this is one of those feelings that I just cannot shake, and I have tried. I have only had this exact feeling with one other person, and he ended up stalking me for awhile (until he was reminded that my dad is an ex-cop and still has ties to the local police force)…
I guess part of my concern is this: as I was preparing for my next Confession this morning using my 1962 missal, I came upon “refused to speak to others” regarding the 5th commandment. For those of you with the Baronius Press version, it’s on page 67. Am I trying to make this too broad a statement or am I exercising prudence in dealing with (or rather, lack thereof) Anon?
Thanks in advance for any help given!
