Catholic dating beliefs
That relationship eventually ended because my ex-boyfriend discerned so excellently.
He was so good at discernment, in fact, that he broke up with me, something I didn’t really appreciate at the time. I suddenly wished that he was not as hardcore-Catholic as he was.
So even though I knew it was for the best, I rebelled against the idea at first.
After a couple of weeks of hashing it out, I accepted the truth behind it and watched in awe as he walked away because he felt God was calling him to. Dating good Catholic men is the way to go, even if it doesn’t turn out the way you want it to at the time.
This con contains lots of “opportunities” to die to self, and to rely on God.My emotional brain would freak out and say, “Hey, don’t leave me! ” Luckily, even in those moments of anxiety, I had enough logical brain left to keep my mouth shut until I could sort my feelings.
