hi all, im new to the site, in need of help. im coptic, in mid-20's, used to be a good girl, never did anything sexual & kept myself pretty clean. then, i got tired of waiting, no one good was taking interest in me & getting harder to control my sexuality. so in short, this guy asked me out and i said yes. that's when a lot of my probs started. weve done a few sexual things, mostly touching, no sex. my issue is that i have trouble forgiving myself and i feel an overwhelming amount of guilt, even tho ive been to confession and my foc gave me absolution. i also spoke to a therapist and told me it was fine. i feel my relationship with God is failing as well and that ive ruined my chances for marriage in the future. just need prayers, not in a good place right now.
