how do I get out of this habit?
sometimes if I get asked difficult questions, I will just automatically blurt out something without really thinking and realize after the fact that what I said was untrue.
but the heart of the matter is, I don’t really want to answer that question or tell the person the truth because they will get angry and make thinga more difficult
for example, someone asked me yesterday what kinds of things I post on facebook and I automatically answered “just church stuff”, after I said it, I realize that, of course, there were other things but for the most part, it is mainly catholic stuff that I share. but this person doen’st even want me to have a facebook account and is always trying to tell me who I should or shouldn’t add as friends and that I shouldn’t post every detail of my life, which I don’t even do anyways.
it was just really late at night and I was super tired and just frustrated at all this questioning but of course, now I feel like I lied
I suppose it’s just my scrupulosity right? I just always feel like leaving out parts of truth also seems like lying. I also know that it’s ridiculous to try and tell every single little detail of truth. but I just feel guilty because I know I’m withholding information that this person is looking for because telling them will just make things worse for me
i just went to confession yesterday too. and i feel like God is always giving me a test when i get out of confession, and i always fail it and commit another sin.
