The worthiness interviews containing questions of a sexual nature drove me to avoid relationships with the opposite sex out of fear of sinning for my entire young adult life. I could have dated as a teenager. I didn’t. I was asked to prom. I didn’t go. I could have had normal healthy relationships, but I never did because I was afraid of mistakes I “might” make.
It is only now in my thirties that I realize how these interviews made me see myself. Thoughts of suicide and years of self hate. All that time stolen from me that I will never get back.
It was wrong. No child should be made to feel that way!
