Keep in mind also that you should never receive Holy Communion if you are aware of having committed a mortal sin without first having it absolved in Confession. While our faith requires us to confess mortal sins at least once a year, we have the option to confess venial ones to a priest as well, and this is highly recommended. When going to Confession, tell the priest as fully as possible the number and nature of the mortal sins you've committed since your last confession, and whatever venial ones as well.
Note also that the Catholic Church speaks of two types of contrition: Perfect and Imperfect. With Perfect Contrition, as we say in the Act of Contrition after Confession, we are sorry for our sins because they offend God, much as we would be if we offended someone special which our Lord wishes to be to us in any case! Either one is sufficient for a good confession, although we should strive to treat our Lord as we would a close friend. You wouldn't want to hurt someone like that would you?
Novena of Mary, "The Mother of Forgiveness"
Maybe again and again! Avoid sin and its occasions as fully as possible, but when you slip up, get back to confession. The priest is there to help restore your soul to its former state of grace. Keep in mind as well that there is no need to feel any shame in this process! Having to confess your sins to another person, the priest, requires a great deal of humility, a virture par excellence in the eyes of our Lord. These worries should never keep you away from the confessional.
Regular confession can help you defeat those impulses that hinder your spiritual advancement, such as anger, envy, lust, and pride, which are among the Seven deadly sins.
