I just got back from confession and church today, and I think I may have ALREADY commited a sin. Being which not honoring my mother.
Me and my mom were driving after chruch to get groceries and we got into a somewhat argument. I asked her why she stopped going to church in the past and she turned the question around on me saying that she had three boys who called her a “holyer than thou B*&%$”
(I know, my family must sound really messed up, Man do I know it)
Anyway I got angery because it sounded to me like she was trying to say that I said it, and I know I didn’t So I got a little loud defending myself and then on the way home there was what looked like a drunk driver in the wrong lane heading our way while half way of the road divider so she said to get the license plate number and call it in before he killed someone. So I did and the cops called back asking for details but I was leaving and told my mom to answer the phone if they called again but she said no because she was going to bed (which I doubt because it was like 9) and so I thought she was lying and said yeah ok but if you hear the drunk driver killed someone then tell yourself that then.
I know that saying that was a little harsh but if the cop called back needing more information why couldn’t she give a couple minutes to answer his questions? especially whe she suggested I call in the first place?
I know I might sound like a brat but I have a very short temper when it comes to my mom because I swear she does some stuff just to make me angry, but I do have some serious anxiety problems and I have a short fuse when it comes to things like this (If you grew up in my house you would understand why!)
Aaaaanyways, i’m just looking for some insight as to whether I need to bring this to the next confession and whether it would be considered grave matter? I am trying to be more calm and trying to get my anger under control especially when it comes to my mother.
Thanks in advance…
