In going back to confession I carried a life's worth of baggage.
I went face to face with the priest. I found it embarrasing
for several weeks after that to speak to him or even look at him.
Is this normal? I have been back to the sacrament since.
The problem is not as severe but I still have difficulty with it the day after going.
The first couple of times that a person goes to confession face
to face can be a bit embarrasing. It is not easy to admit our faults
when the other knows who we are..... it is a lot easier when we can
hide ourselves behind a screen.
However, there is no reason for you to feel uncomfortable afterwards.
98% percent of the time that someone comes to me for confession,
I know who they are, whether they go face to face or not. On the same
token, 100% of the time, after confessions are over, I will not be able to
remember one person that went to confession, and I remember none of
the sins that I hear. I can tell you that people over the years have
confessed this or that, but I will not be able to say that today, someone
confessed this or that. I am not there to remember what people say,
I am not there to remember who confesses and who doesn't. I am there
to listen, to assist, to forgive.... to share God's love and grace.
So rest assured, you can freely talk to your priest after confession.
It will not make him uneasy, and it should not make you uneasy.
