I’m 19, an active LDS member, finished my Personal Progress a while ago and I have a calling for almost a year. I strugled with pornography and masturbation since I was about 10 years old, but it all stopped after I got baptized. About 4 months ago, I felt this huge urge and ended up masturbating. I wasn’t thinking about anything improper or something like that, it was like I needed this as a relief for sexual tension or something. I felt realy guilty and ashamed about it, but was afraid to tell the bishop and decided I would only confess to the Lord. After a month, the same thing happened and it has been a cicle since then: I do it, feel guilty, pray and ask for forgiveness and, a month later, do it again. A part of me was never realy sure if I needed to talk to the bishop since I didn’t have lustful thoughts while doing it, but I know it’s wrong and I’m afraid I won’t feel completely free of this sin (therefore, not being able to marry someone in the temple when the time comes) until I confess. I’m afraid if I tell the bishop, I’ll lose my calling, wich I love so much. What should I do? How do I get the courage to tell him? Do you think I’ll lose my calling?
