Grew up in secular family, but with "Christian values and morals." Grandma taught basic things like Lord's Prayer, but that's it. I started to get conflicted around 13, when "equal marriage rights" laws started getting popular. On one hand I instinctively "knew" it was wrong, but, if law makes it legal, it's not wrong is it? Spent following years looking for "truth," trying to solve this issue and only recently realised the Bible gives us boundaries and moral operating system. Reading Romans 1:26 solved my riddle. Despite this, most of my life I grew up secular - masturbation/sex jokes, alcohol parties being main way of celebrating and interacting with my peers, porn being freely available etc. Trying to minimise damage incurred from immoral secular virus using one of fundamental truths I uncovered - NoFap. I was able to successfully live through last year without PMO, which greatly helped my projects and day to day life, but... I made multiple attempts to get a girlfriend, but they didn't come to fruition. Desperation, loneliness and jealousy built up and I broke my streak, so here I am trying to get new Christian grip on life and fix mistakes of the past. My future goal is to learn more about Catholicism, since Protestantism views truth as relative("times change, people change, religion changes"), which instinctively feels "wrong" and possibly convert. Glad to have found and be part of this forum.
