So as i continue the discerning process. I have doubts about joining. I am confused with what i have always wanted, and what i think that God wants from me.

I have thought about how i will tell the people in my life, i.e. my family, that will not understand the idea of me discerning religious life. But i have decided that it doesn't matter what they think or what they want for my life. I know that following God's will is the best decision i can make. I know that i must do what God wants for me, and nothing else or nothing less.

People are often unreasonable,illogical,and self centered;forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish,ulterior motives;..be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway.
What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness,they may be jealous;..be HAPPY anyway.
The good you do today,people will often forget tomorrow; do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: give the world the best you've got anyway.
You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;..it was never between you and them anyway.

-Mother Theresa

Oh BritBrit, I know how you feel. I don't want to tell too many people I'm considering my vocation either because of fear of ridicule or gossip. I'm working on not caring about what other people think about me, and my decisions, but it's hard.

May God bless you as you continue your discernment. You are in my prayers always.
