...when, even though your life is beautiful, wonderful, and full of blessings, you still feel "incomplete," much how lovers feel when they say they are incomplete without their significant other.

When I first felt a possible calling, I panicked and asked a priest if there is any way to get out of it, if God was really calling me. But then I realized that God knows you better than you know yourself, and wants you to be happy. Once I started giving in a bit, I started feeling a peace...

It can be hard at times but I have been told that if Im not open and honest about it I will spend the rest of my life going in circles....which I did for a while :saint: so now I know its true! Trust in the Lord and be honest about it ......as somebody already mentioned you will find true peace.:)

Ah, yes. Those dark nights of vocations are terrible! There was one a few weeks ago and all I could do was cling to my Lord.

when you find out that your diocese vocations director is at your school and do your best to avoid him because you are terrified that if he looks at you he will just know!

I know what you mean about the "just knowing" look. I have been avoiding some people because I'm afraid it's all over my face and they'll just figure it out.

When you 'have' sisters.

When you're disappointed you have to miss the sisters on Oprah (come to youtube quick!)

When you know "the look," ie, the look given to you by almost every religious.
