I am a 25 year old a month into trying to return to the faith and going to mass every Sunday. I have been to confession every week during this month. I know that going weekly is a good thing, and I truly do feel that the graces I receive from it are worth it, but the problem is I keep NEEDING to go. As in, I believe that I am possibly continually committing mortal sin. You see, I live with my mom…and we are both rather hot tempered and get into tiffs frequently,some minor, and occasionally, not so minor… Just today I went to confession, and then tonight, my mom brought up the topic of putting our dog to sleep (this has been a stressful point for some time, as I have thought the dog isn’t ready yet, while she thinks the dog is a dog and has had a good life and it is time…). Well, the conversation ended up upsetting me to the point that I got very angry/sad/upset all at once and exploded, yelling at her that I hated her and couldn’t stand her anymore and some other nasty things I’d rather not say here. I really was very upset. I know that sometimes emotional state can lessen the degree of grave sin, and while this is an extreme case, it seems that we quarrel at least somewhat every week so I keep going to confession for disrespecting and being angry with her. What am I to do?
