Hi everyone, I wanted to tell you about something that happens to me very often.

Throughout the day I kiss the religious images I have in my bedroom and all around the house everytime I see them. I feel a strong impulse to do so. I feel that if I don't do it, I'm not showing enough respect to God or to the Virgin depending on the image. I feel that it is as if I didn't care and I feel bad. Although I realized that this may not be right and I tried to resist the compulsion, I find myself doing it over and over again. Do you think it may be a compulsion?

Anyway I try to resist the impulse and not to kiss the images all the time, or for example, something I tried to obligue myself to do is to kiss an image once a day only. Sometimes I can, sometimes I fail.

Whay do you think about this? thanks for reading. God bless you

If it's a source of stress and it's interfering with your life then it's a cause for concern. You may want to look up some OCD coping techniques, not to say that you have OCD, but the tips should still help you out.

Good luck.

Thanks for your advice Fountainand Fairfax

Sacramanet, I think I don't understand very well what you mean. Who do you refer to by "they"?
