Sexual Integrity Counseling
Our world is subjecting the people of all ages to the intense sexualization that surrounds us. Sexual temptation lies everywhere, on billboards, magazines, television, the internet, and hundreds of other stimulants. Even the purest of men and women fall to these temptations, but it is important to maintain sexual integrity. These negative influences can have a lasting effect on the well-being of families and individuals. People at at times forget God’s intended origin of man and our purpose and can get lost in the our sexualized society. Recognizing these stimulants exist is the first step to avoid them and resist these troublesome temptations.
Sexual sin invades the lives of everyone and can often disrupt the purity of one’s soul as we have all seen. These temptations we all have need to be taken seriously and to remain pure one must keep in mind that each sexual thought and form of pleasure is a step towards losing many of the things in your life that are important to you. There are steps you can take to prepare yourself in resisting these temptations, like having ways to distract yourself or having a friend to talk to.
Having a friend to confide in when dealing with these sexual feelings is important. Keeping these secrets inside you and in the dark can overwhelm you and make you even more subject to these temptations. People must see that it is perfectly normal to have these temptations and whether they are ashamed or not, it is best to confide in another about these thoughts or actions. It is near impossible to overcome these temptations on one’s own. Having someone there for you also makes you more accountable to watch over your actions and thoughts more closely and help you maintain sexual integrity.
