Father, I would like your help to know what I ought to talk about with my former. I’ve always had this problem. I think that it’s only when we are not doing well when we should talk, but that’s not true.
I know that spiritual direction is a huge help, but I feel like I don’t open myself up totally to sister. I never lie or hide anything. I try to be transparent, but I’m really absentminded, and throughout the day it’s hard for me to realize what I do wrong, or even what I do right... When I have to examine my conscience, it’s really hard work because I don’t even know what to think about... I’ve told all of this to my former, and she is helping me a lot. I’m really absentminded as far as virtues, but I want to make an effort to practice them.
