PART 4 - Thanks in advance for answering my question, Jess. I hope you're doing great! God bless you!

Continued from this question:

Hey, Jess. What’s up? How are things? I would like to ask you something and I hope it’s not too much of a bother, but I’d just like to hear the input from someone like you whom I admire and respect so much as a fellow Catholic young woman. So here goes; let’s say you meet a really sweet guy and you start dating him and he turns out to be a very faithful Catholic as much in love with Jesus as you are, BUT eventually he reveals something to you.  He reveals that he used to live a very immoral, promiscuous lifestyle during which he would sleep around with a lot of women, including prostitutes (and even a couple of men) and that he was also a sex and pornography addict but later gave all that up after he experienced a profound conversion to Christ and the Catholic faith and began to lead a healthier, chaste lifestyle in the Lord’s Grace.  My question to you is this, would you stay with him? Would it bother you that he has that sort of past? Or would you accept him as the new person in Christ that he is now (and who happens to treat you like a queen)? What would bother you the most about that revelation of his?

Hello Anon! I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply, I work and have an internship so I don’t always have a lot of time to go on here.  I hope I’m not too late!! <3 

Anyways, in regards to your question, I would absolutely still give him a chance and give him the benefit of the doubt.  Believe it or not, many many many Catholic men and women struggle with lustful addictions or have struggled with them in the past.  Overcoming them is a huge accomplishment and if someone is able to overcome that and receive the forgiveness from God that they needed, then they shouldn’t have their past sins be held against them.  We all have some sort of sin that we have struggled with, lustful or other, and overcoming those crosses is huge, difficult, but definitely possible.  To be honest, I have struggled with certain sins in my past, but I trusted my boyfriend and told him about them (plus I gave a few talks at retreats on them, so he also found out through that, but I told him about them prior to the talks).  It takes a lot of courage to tell the person you love about the struggles you have had in the past, and lust is one of the hardest ones to tell someone about because you often feel ashamed for those actions.  He told you because he trusts you and he sees possibility of a future with you, and he doesn’t want there to be secrets.  Now, it is ok for it to bother you a little bit, and you can keep those things he told you in the back of your head just in case it becomes an issue in the future, but I don’t think you should worry about it too much, at least not unless it becomes a problem again.  Just remember God has forgiven him for those things so as far as God is concerned he has a clean slate (: I hope this helps!!! God bless <3

Jessica, what I'm about to tell you will mean the difference between a stressed out day at work and a good day at work. You ready? Whether it's on your computer or your phone or whatever, find some funny comedians, play their shows and just LAUGH. Whether it's a some Louis C.K. or some Jim Gaffigan. Trust me, the more you laugh the more stress will leave you and the less you will be bothered by things. I mean I work in a funeral home all day and I'm constantly laughing my butt off... :[

Aww thank you Anon <3 I actually really needed this, I’ve been having a rough night, so this really means a lot and is super helpful.  Also I happen to LOVE Jim Gaffigan, his book “Dad is Fat” has me laughing out loud every time I pick it up at the bookstore (: Thank you Anon! Peace of Christ <3

Jessica, please help promulgate the holy rosary, it is our Mother's desire to see the world devoted to her Immaculate heart through this most blessed gift. God bless.

I am a huuuuge advocate for praying the rosary <3 It has definitely helped to get me through incredibly rough times and deepen my relationship with Christ and our Blessed Mother <3 God bless you! (:

Jess, do you wear the scapular of our Blessed Lady? Do you also pray the rosary? BTW, if you do, please offer it up for the consecration of Russia. Thanks and God bless!
Anonymous

I do wear a scapular, but not the scapular of our Blessed Lady, although if I had one I would wear it! I should look for it (: And I will most definitely offer up my rosaries for the consecration of Russia <3 God bless you!!

Congrats on finding a new job! Work hard and always remember the most important thing in any job - HONESTY! I know that it may sound a bit strange saying this and a bit random, but trust me, at one point you'll understand. Always remember to be honest in your work, no matter what it may be and to never complain but to be content with what you have and give thanks, just like John the Baptist taught us. Contniued on next ask.

Cont… In my first job, I was once paid DOUBLE my regular pay one week (and it was a well paying job) and I could’ve kept my mouth shut but I didn’t. I called my boss and told him and you know what he replied? “Thank you. I can now see that you’re honest and trust worthy and I appreciate that”. I was then promoted and given higher resposibilities. I haven’t stopped praising God for what I have (and don’t have) since then. Give thanks, even for the bad things and always remember to trust in HIm totally!

Thank you soooooooo much!!!!!! I will definitely be honest! <3 I am so thankful to have this job and I really want to do well (: It has been a lot to learn but I’ve definitely learned a lot in the time that I have been there (: God bless you! <3

When you're stressed out, stop for a lil' while, put on some Bob Marley, and just take it eeeeaaaaasssssyyyyyyyyy lolol! The man's music will totally mellow you out lol. Listen to a song of his called "Easy Skanking" and you'll see what I mean. (=D

Even as a stand alone site with few updates these days, your blog is still an amazing set of Catholic resources and essays. Not that I'm complaining, I'm really glad that your focusing on your life a lot more these days which obviously has to come first. I really hope everything is going great for you, Jess! Hope you can start blogging regularly again soon, but only when you're well settled in life. Until then, we'll wait for you. God bless, "Flo" lol. You're awesome.

Awwwwww this made me tear up a little!! (‘: Thank you soooo much! That really means so much to hear.  I felt really bad because I don’t have much time at all to post on here or answer a ton of questions, so I’m glad that it is still helpful regardless and that you understand why I’m not on here all that much anymore.  I hope I will get to the point where I will have more time to blog, but until then I am glad that it can still be of at least a little help <3 God bless you! (Hahahaha you remember my Flo costume!!!) Take care (:

Do you like the movie Sister Act with Whoopi Goldberg?
Anonymous

Hahaha to be quite honest, I’ve never actually seen it xD Although I’m not quite fond of Whoopi, so I don’t think I would care for the movie >.<

I really hope you've overcome that dumb food-weight problem you were going through months ago. You're perfect the way you are and you deserve to eat healthy but plenty, know what I mean? Always love yourself first. :)

Aww thank you! I have pretty much overcome that, thank the Lord!! <3 You are so sweet and I really appreciate your message! God bless you (:
