I hate how much I struggle with Chastity. I hate how I struggle to keep it. I wish I had more LDS friends irl to talk too. I’m feeling pretty guilty and unworthy. And I feel like I shouldn’t, idk.
“I’m feeling pretty guilty and unworthy.” This is how religion intends to make everyone feel by associating normal human responses to shame and guilt. The church, especially the Mormon church, chooses natural, healthy stimulants like sex and tries to distance you from then to make you reliant on the church to achieve any degree of happiness or satisfaction. However, sexual feelings are not something you can really control. You can suppress, but you can’t change the fact that you want to have sex. For the church,this creates a system perpetual dependence. You need the church to satisfy you and to keep you from doing something the church has told you is bad and you need the church as a place of contrition once you inevitably fail to meet their demands. It’s a perfect scam. You’re being used! You shouldn’t let this institution make you feel anyway at all. Whether they’re making you feel guilty or like you have some great purpose or whatever they’re just manipulating you.
