I know how you feel. In my journey back to Catholicism, I also looked at the East. Heck, even once I returned to Catholicism I still looked at the Orthodox Church.
Note: What I am about to write is just my take and I mean to disrespect to the Orthodox.
I found many things that bothered me about Orthodoxy. Just to name three, the nonchalant attitude toward Mother Mary, while on one side they call her the Theotokos, many are not bothered when more than few of their members say she committed sin. It doesn’t matter if she did or not I often heard some orthodox say. Some even on this board.
I also am very uneasy with the centrality of Palamism within the theology of the Orthodox. My uneasiness is mainly around depositing uncreated energies distinct from the person hood of the trinity
I also am bothered that the Orthodox deny the beatific vision.
These are just three. I was troubled by many more. Could it be that maybe the people I talked to were poorly taught? I don’t know, but I did seek to find dogmatic books to be able to understand Orthodoxy. But there were not many, there is something called the Rudder which I started to read. In short there is real vagueness about Orthodoxy on many things. If you want to know where the West stands on issues, the answers are easy to finds. There was also among the Orthodox a real double standard when it came to judging the Western Church, especially in terms of adding to the deposit of the faith. The East has added (doctrinal development) but deny and get mad when it is pointed out (Palamism).
There are also many beautiful things about the East. So let me make it clear, I do not wish to disparage the Orthodox but I wanted to let you know that I also went through the same thoughts as I returned to Catholicism. Keep praying to God, pray the Rosary, attend a TLM. You will be fine.
Talk to knowledgable people on this board, from both sides, there are some very fine traditional catholics and orthodox on this board.
