Hey, I found this site a while ago and just recently had the courage to sign up. I'm 16, and a recently confirmed Catholic (under the name Dymphna).

A few months ago I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and one of the things that kept coming up in my thoughts was that I was waiting til till marriage, and felt alone. Finding the forums helped me out of a lot of these toxic thoughts. I had this fear that everyone who was waiting would be boring. But these forums made me realize that that's stupid, there's so many diverse and complex people here. So thanks, and I'm excited to talk!

@seabutterfly Welcome! I think you'll find a lot of healthy support here. I came here dealing with similar issues, but the many great people here have helped me overcome a lot. I'm sure you'll experience that for yourself the more time you spend here. Don't hesitate to ask any questions or make some new topics, nobody here is gonna judge you and everyone is more than willing to lend a hand if you need it. I promise you'll have a good time here. :) It's always great to have newcomers. Wish more of the lurkers would join too.

Hi Seabutterfly, you are on a right track, and congs for taking this brave decision to wait given the forces and loud otherwise voices in your generation.

God is faithful and has already put out His righteous right hand which is also victorious to pick you up from any pitfall.

It's very easy to feel alone when mass media promotes the idea that religion and the accompanying morals are outdated. That's their intent. I'm sure most, including myself, have felt that way at some point in time. There's an incredible pressure to conform to beliefs and ideals that are entirely based on the whims of the consumer culture and it's pretty scary.

Anyway, welcome to the forum!
