where to turn

as i struggle with confessing i often wonder why i did what i did
and how much i have grown from everything that i have learned
i have learned to not let people take advantage of me and i have learned to say
no to immature little "boys" but most importantly when i meet these men that turn into little boys i automatically stop talking to them because i have learned that it is not good for me because i know that they might get me back to where i most definitely do not want to go.

i have learned so much from this experience but i wonder if my bishop will see that i have learned and that i will never do what i have done. i have grown up into a lady with 2 callings that have seriously saved my life. i am very grateful for the gospel and the atonement.

i hope everyone has a fabulous sunday tomorrow. :)


You can do it!    
"I understand how anxious you feel. Many of us were as terrified as you when first talking to the Bishop. You will feel so much peace after taking that first step. It is so worth it. Have courage and remember that it is the adversary that is putting the doubts into your mind. I will be praying for you. God bless you for the changes you have made in your life."

You are not who you used to be.    
"I love this post. I made a serious mistake in high school and let a lot of guys take advantage of me and although I work with Bishop on changing and beating this lasting addiction, I am not who I was before. I completely agree with what you've said and that's what I've been working on. Realizing that the past is in the past."

"I need not define your specific problem to help you overcome it. It doesn’t matter what it is. If it violates the commandments of the Lord, it comes from Satan, and the Lord can overcome all of Satan’s influence through your application of righteous principles. Please understand that the way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true. The Savior gave His life so that you can completely overcome the challenges you face. "
