2021.09.27 02:10 professor-okay I (19F)Like Going to Mass. My Aunt Wants me to Stop.
Context here: I (19F)consider myself a non-denominational Christian. I'm serious about my faith, but I do feel like I'm struggling. Because of my questions, I've been doing research, studying theology whenever I can, looking into the history of the Bible, reading the Bible, talking to religious leaders from different denominations and even studying different religions to try to and understand my faith better and find some peace. I want to be a good Christian. I want to do what is right and I'm trying my hardest.
One of the things I've found that really helps me is going to Mass. I am not Catholic, and I don't agree with all of their doctrines/teachings, but Mass gives me a sense of peace, a chance to reflect, think, pray and worship God. I've gone to Catholic school for most of my life, and most of the Catholics I have met are kind, serious about their faith, and live out the Christian message in their lives. They've been very open to discussing my concerns and questions, and overall, it is a positive experience.
My aunt, who is a Christian, and who I love and respect very much told me to stop going to mass. I asked her why. She told me that the Catholic Doctrine was incorrect, and that it would confuse me. I told her that Mass gave me a sense of peace and comfort, and that no one minded me attending even if I do not agree with all their teachings. She told me that I was wrong and confused. She went on to say the icons and veneration of the saints are "idols" and "demonic". And because Catholics had these things in combination with Jesus, they were not Christians at all, but demonic. She also said that every time she had gone to a mass, she got a terrible headache and backache that she took for signs of "demonic presences"
I suggested that perhaps she had an allergic reaction to incense and that the kneeling was bad for her hurt back. I told her that every Catholic I had met followed the Christian message, served Christ first and above all things (The name of the Chapel I attend mass at is literally "Christ's Chapel") and that their traditions did not stop them from being Christians. I told her I would continue to go to mass, because I felt like it was the right thing to to.
She replied with "That's bad" and told me I should "read my Bible". (Which I have been reading and studying like crazy, as I stated above). I told her I was and she said "Read it again, because you are wrong". She told me again that mass was "bad" and that I was "confused" and completely shut down the conversation and didn't allow me to explain myself. She shut down everything I said with "You're wrong, read your Bible"
The most hurtful part of this conversation, though, is that she must have gone and spoken to my grandmother about this. I don't know what my aunt told her, but my grandmother on my last visit to her pulled me aside and told me to "Be good" to "Obey my parents" and that "She didn't want to hear anything bad about me" The whole time she looked at me like I was some sort of monster, or like someone she had never met before. My grandmother, who knew me from a baby, looked at me like I was a stranger. I'm crying as I write this.
Reddit is probably not the best place to come for religious advice, but I have to hear from somebody. What should I do? I feel terrible. I don't think I can stop going to Mass, not when it is such a form of comfort for me. But if this is how my family reacted to it, I don't know what they will do if I continue to go. And this is merely my attending Mass, not any of my more serious questions about the faith. They act as if my efforts to understand my faith better are some heinous sin, and that's I'm a bad person for "doubting"
Help, advice, please. I don't know how to deal with this.

2021.09.27 02:10 arrwsm I always get depressed after hooking up
went to my buddy's university homecoming this weekend and had a great time. met a beautiful girl at his girlfriend's place and hit it off with her, leading to hooking up with her in her room. I'm not boasting, it's just part of the story. and today, I'm depressed even though I shouldn't be. this happens to me everytime I have a one night stand. I don't have feelings for her, but it's reminding me of something I can't have. meaningless sex always seems great before or in the moment, but afterwards it fucks me up because I don't want this shit anymore. I want a real connection with someone I care about, but I can never seem to actually get it. it just feels like people my age aren't after this kind of thing anymore, and this whole year and a half of lockdowns and minimal interaction just reminds me how truly alone I feel. I want to care about someone and feel an emotional connection to someone who feels the same for me. I just want to feel loved
