my family and I were baptized in 2010. I still consider my recent convert, as I am learning about the faith daily. Confession is very difficult for me. I am still getting over the embarrassment of confessing to the priest at our parish. I try to confess weekly, but I must admit that I often gloss over or try to categorize my sins generally--"I...lusted" or "I...experienced anger." This must seem very cowardly and indeed it is. Any advice?
In addition, the priest (please forgive me, everyone) sometimes seems exasperated with me, especially in regards to habitual sins. I feel terrible and less inclined to be rigorous with my confession. Perhaps this is normal and I should get over it and...most importantly...stop sinning. Please forgive me, I am trying.
Thank you for reading. Any and all advice is appreciated and welcome.
And please, pray for me, a sinner.
