what exactly are near occasions of sin? and apparently it’s a sin to put yourself in this situation?
I get a lot of unwanted feelings and thoughts, however there is no desire to act on these thoughts and feelings or even entertain them. would it still be a near occasion of sin to be in situations that may cause these unwanted things? for example, if being around a particular person somemtimes causes feelings of anger but you would never actually say or do anything, or something similar for jealousy. or sexual arousal that is not really related, it just happens and you don’t even want it. anyways, I could go on but you get the point.
it’s hard to discern these things with my scruples. anytime I’ve brought it up in confession, I just get the response “don’t worry” whihch, isn’t actually that practical for a scrupulous person. but maybe I am misunderstanding what a near occasion of sin is supposed to be.
sometimes I really wish God had installed an off switch for my brain
