  1. A couple of years ago I started masturbating, not really knowing what i was doing until I wanted to know what the church thoughts were about it. I read that it was a sin I stopped immediately and prayed for days to be okay with God. I haven't done anything in a year, so I've realized I am not an addict which is good. I haven't thought about going back and a feel fine. I haven't spoken to anyone about it and I really don't want too because I'm not having an addiction like most forums and threads say. I'm just really confused about what I should do because I feel like God has forgiven me but everyone's response is usually go speak to your bishop or something and I really can't do that. I'm the most socially awkward person and if I speak about that past of me I will start bawling because I didn't even know it was wrong. So please can someone help me find out what I should do. By the way I am a mia maid age 14 thank you for reading and help me because I feel alone in this. Also I cant tell my Bishop because I don't trust it will be kept secret. Everything that happens in my ward spreads like wildfire even though I barley know anyone at my ward.
  2. I am a sister in a Young Single Adult ward and I am trying to cope with having a crush on one of our full-time missionaries. I work closely with the missionaries and the ward mission leader so I'm around them a lot, and BAM, it's hitting me. There is no way I would ever tell him or anyone in the ward while he's serving, or even hint at it -- totally out of line. But it's a constant struggle for me to keep from being overly friendly or betraying myself. What bothers me even more is that he's going home (several states away) in a few weeks, and it breaks my heart to think of never seeing him again. So I friended him on Facebook (his full name is right on the front of his notebook, ok!) with a little message saying hi, knowing he wouldn't see it until after his mission. Now I'm worried that that was the wrong thing to do, although I can't very well take it back. So I don't know what my actual question is.... I don't know how to even TRY to see if something could progress after his mission. No clue how to broach that topic. Advice needed. Thanks guys.
  3. So I've been working out in Vancouver, Washington for the last few months selling attic insulation door to door. I knew beforehand about what I was getting myself into, but I prayed dilligently for an answer of whether I should work there or not and the spirit told me that it was where I needed to be this summer. Its a very high paying job, and I'm not bad at it, but its terribly difficult and I've been holding out for the last month and a half just telling myself "work harder...". To be perfectly honest, the only days where I feel completely at peace are on sundays, because they are the only days that I don't work. Every day when I get home from knocking on doors for hours and crawling through attics, I come home so relieved that I get to stop. I'm only 18 years old and I took on this job so that I could pay for my terribly high tuition at Southern Virginia University. I'm so very behind on money and I have so much pressure on me from all sides to succede and remain financially independent. I dread going to work everyday. Is that even healthy? Don't get me wrong, I love some parts of my job, but I feel as if I'm failing at being happy. My job doesn't provide me with adequate satisfaction and not enough money because I earn commission rather than salary. My church life has been not much better. I attend a single adult ward and I am definitely the youngest attendee in the ward. Most of the people in my ward that I spend my time with are older than me by 5 or 6 years, and as if my opinions and participation in conversation doesn't matter to them. All in all, I'm very lonely. I almost had a mental breakdown today so I left work early and sat down in a cemetery for about two and a half hours with my scriptures. I read a lot and a prayed a lot... about my job, my peers where i currently live, my financial situation, my parents and my real friends back home. I'm praying so hard about whether I'm supposed to go home and find another job and finally find a degree of peace and happiness or stick out my job for the rest of my summer. I don't know if the voices in my head are telling me to stay or go. On top of that, I don't know if those voices in my head belong to the still small voice or my own mind. I want to be impartial. There is good news to be shared though. I have changed so much for the better since I moved to Vancouver. My spirit has grown. I have become a more mature and independent person and I have learned to love and respect myself a lot more than I used to be capable of. What can I do?
  4. So... just wondering. kind of confused right now. I was dating this girl for a while and then last night she said we couldn't date anymore because she didn't want to get too attached. I said, "why", and she said because she was going on a mission. Obviously I am happy that she is choosing to go on a mission and I support it so much, but it just kind of hurts. I asked if she wanted me to keep asking her on dates and she said no, and she started to cry. I am just really confused. Maybe I am just too dense to realize that she didn't want to be with me anymore, but shouldn't it be a happy decision? I want to keep dating her, but I don't know what to do. She doesn't have her mission papers yet but she said she plans on getting them soon. We are both in our early 20s. Please give me any advice you have. Thanks

    Any help that anyone could give would be greatly appreciated. A situation has arisen with my boss that I really don't know what to do about. He is married with children. I'm his PA. I have turned a blind eye to his activities for the two / three years that I have been working for him. (He is married with children who have now grown up not that makes it any better.) His attentions have now come to me, around Christmas time he made it obvious that he wanted more than just paperwork doing. Please don't get me wrong nothing has happened. I've tried my best to humor him while keep him at arms length - I'm well aware I need a reference from him at the end of my contract this year (which I won't be renewing.) He is now pestering me every day. He knows I'm LDS, his old boss at a previous firm is on the high council in my stake! I have made the resolution that I need to trust Heavenly Father to guide me threw any problems that may arise with my references because of it, but I'm not sure exactly how to tell my boss, "I'm not interested, and this is why" etc etc. I know the people around me who I work with wouldn't be bothered, I know many who have worked their way up the ladder that way. But that's not my way. I've made it where I am through sheer hard work. I know that my colleagues and the world will think I've lost it, I know they will especially with the current credit crisis. But I can't deny my standards anymore. :-S Confused.
