So, in my absence from social media I believed I’ve discovered the importance of fasting. Through depriving myself of social media, and the desires I do have for it, I’ve found recently that other desires, those more sinful, are easier to ignore or abstain from, and I’ve gained an ounce or two more of self-control. As well more of my free time has been spent reading or in prayer which is always a good thing. Chastity is a sin I have struggled with since my decision to convert, as I was always raised in something of a secular “if it feels good, do it” mentality, but over the past few weeks or so, I’ve found it easier to temper such temptations with prayer, and it’s definitely exploded exponentially since this bout of social media “fasting”.
Not sure that I’ll be returning to tumblr full-time, but definitely was excited to share :)
