I’m having a problem.... I am experiencing life everyday like it’s my last. I am enjoying myself and trying new things. The problem is, every time I try something that may be frowned upon by my family or the Catholic Church, I feel like I have to “confess” my sins to my mom.... like word vomit. I feel this way like I’ve done something wrong and that I am
A bad daughter, and I need to repent. I’m only experiencing life to the fullest. I might be trying “daring” things but nothing out of the ordinary (I’m pretty sure it’s common upon college students). How do I help myself feel better and not feel like I am this horrible human being who feels guilty for experiencing life?, and not feel the need to spill the beans to my mom? Thoughts.

you shouldn't feel guilty for experiencing life its normal to do fun and new things at your age
if you would rather not tell your mum I cant see why that is a problem

Spill it to us instead? Haha. I used to have the same issue and it stopped because I started “confessing” to other people. Now I don’t confess to anybody but I get it out by posting my feelings or writing them down.

I keep having the mentality that I am a bad person for trying things that are considered sinful to some people. My fiancé and I are young, and we want to try new things but I just feel like I need to talk about all of it to my mom. I don’t want to, it’s like an impulse. I’m not sure if it had anything to do with my being bipolar or having OCD and depression.
