So, I went to my disciplinary council....

I am now on formal probation. There are restrictions, like I cannot take the sacrament or hold a temple recommend at this time. Also, I am not supposed to offer public prayer. I was told that if I have any more contact with Greg, I will probably be disfellowshipped.

But...

I think I can do this. I really believe I am able to. I believe I have strength through God. Why? Well, I've deactivated my Facebook, emails, I'm in the process of changing my phone number (customer service has been very busy because of the hurricane). I know of a different parking lot at my job that Greg doesn't know about. But, I only know how to access that parking lot from the inside of the building. If I wander around one night at work, I can figure out how to get to that parking lot from the street. Additionally, I've let management at my work and the Union know to not let Greg in the building while I'm working.

Also, I was instructed to not even acknowledge Greg if I ever see him again.

Plus, the things I've been doing in my personal life are helping to minimize temptation. Now, I still get tempted, but I am now able to bear the temptation, whereas I could not before. Truly, I feel I am changing from the inside out.

I just wish I would have known the things I know now a looooooooooong time ago. Couldn't figure out how to overcome temptation. Now, I've learned how to do this.

"I will speak briefly of the principle of repentance. How grateful I am for the understanding we have of this great principle. It is not a harsh principle, as I thought when I was a boy. It is kind and merciful. The Hebrew root of the word means, simply, "to turn," or to return, to God. Jehovah pled with the children of Israel: "Return . . . and I will not cause mine anger to fall upon you: for I am merciful . . . and I will not keep anger for ever. Only acknowledge thine iniquity, that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God." When we acknowledge our sins, confess them and forsake them, and turn to God, He will forgive us."
