No, not necessarily. 

I think it can seem that way on the internet, because scrupulous people often have doubts and very specific questions on spiritual matters, and they often ask about them without discretion on the internet.  They can't meet with a spiritual director or confessor as often as they'd like, so the internet seems like a reasonable alternative.  People have been wrestling with scrupulosity, as well as overcoming it, since long before the internet though.  To overcome scrupulosity, a good confessor is crucial.  Trust him, do the spiritual practices he recommends, and scrupulosity will work itself out.

I think most people are not remotely scrupulous enough. In other words, they know or sense that they are not doing enough of what Jesus said but they just shrug it off. I struggle to do enough for people less fortunate. I stand up for them and  etc.. but I could do more. I just have this thing about giving $$ to an agency that is supposed to help the downtrodden but who knows where it might go? I have a real hard time giving $$ to people I don't trust/don't feel I can trust. And the problem is: I don't trust ANYONE!

ahh.... I don't know what to do. I was giving to a charity yrs ago that i trusted and now i am not sure i remember which one it was.. Food for the Poor, i think...
