Okay so before starting, those who have seen some of my previous posts i have talked to my priest about scrupulously and I feel i am making progress, but anyway heres my question:
So I realised in my past I have perhaps talked bad about somebodies faults (in my case academically) I remember that, and I try not to insult people or talk about their faults but, this popped into my head and I found out it is Detraction and since knowing it was Detraction I will try to not commit it or talk about peoples faults in the future.
But here is my question is it still a sin if I was not aware that it was a sin , I would say I do not like to talk about peoples thoughts but when I mentioned this it was quite a while ago now so is it still as in?
And on the terms of detraction what happens if you are about someones faults to their face for example I was playing my some of my friends and in a jokey sort of way I was like "You're so bad" in a joking sense. Is that Detraction of is Detraction like talking behind somebodies back like gossiping or something.
I also know I am scrupulous but I would like to think I am making advancements and I am not worrying about things that much anymore, for example I would usually started to worry about how playing a video game may be sinful for example killing people, or declaring unlawful war but then I reminded myself that it is just a game and not real life, I do feel like I am making improvements but this is an issue that is confusing me.
As an added note are you supposed to go to confession for venial sins? Or just mortal sins as I think I have been going for both but not sure if your supposed to go to confession for venial sins.
