Hi everybody. I've been discerning on and off for years for a vocation to the priesthood. I've been avoiding it and pushing it away but somehow, I find myself being attracted back to it and I begin to discern again. I can't for the life of me shake the idea! My worry is that if I get married and have kids I'll be unhappy because I'm not doing God's will. I'm frightened to talk to my priest because I don't want my family to know I'm discerning; they won't be thrilled. Any advice for me? I feel I just need to grow up and do what is right for me, discern properly, and see what happens. That's easier said than done. This fear of other people's opinion has paralyzed me.
Thanks everyone and long live Pope Francis!
