What do you think about doing versus giving up things you love? I am not talking about material things, but things like: A path you want to take in life, a place you want to move to, stuff like that.
I often feel very strongly about things like that and I get totally “into” it.
I also have OCD/scrupulosity and then I tell myself maybe it is bad if I love something so much and I have to give it up.
But on the other hand maybe God gives me these strong feelings because it is the path I am SUPPOSED to take.
How do I know?
What would you personally say - be thankful if you feel so strongly about something and try to go that path?
Or be very suspicious because you feel so strongly about it and try to banish it from your thoughts? (I am not even sure how possible that is? Well, with God everything is possible. But would God want me to do that?)
I struggle so much with this sometimes. Then sometimes not. Right now I am still totally into learning another language because I feel drawn to a place. I enjoy it so much. Is that all right???
Or does the fact that I am even SCRAED that I MIGHT have to “give it up” mean that I have to, because it is too important to me?
OR is my feeling drawn to do it and enjoying it so much rather a sign that I should be doing it??? And it is my OCD/scrupulosity telling me it may be wrong?
