I sinned
#1
This year I've sinned mortally
Asking friends and family and everyone has been given grace to not.
Im scared God is giving people more grace and I'm being denied it.
I'm not trying to normalise sin, but has anyone else fallen since lockdown? Again, not trying to normalise such a horror

Well the lockdown does invite people to sin. EMJ mentioned something back in 2000s when the Second Intifada was undergoing. IDF took over the TV stations in Ramallah and began broadcasting porn 24/7. They coupled this with a curfew, so obviously it led to men sinning.

It's no different than the crazy curfews we are having now and our perverted media trying to pollute our minds. Irregardless, solitude is a dangerous place for one who struggles with the solitary sin.

God is not denying you grace. He is giving you the grace you need and the grace you have requested for.

Try and get to confession if you can, if not then pray the Miserere (Psalm 51).

So you're not perfect. Join the club. Get over it and get to Confession. God bless.

Are you the same person as “Christmasfairy”?

Also, since March I’m sure nearly every human being has sinned in some way, large or small. Not everyone’s sins are the same. You just need to go to confession.
"I am a Christian, and indeed a Roman Catholic, so that I do not expect ‘history’ to be anything but a ‘long defeat’ — though it contains (and in a legend may contain more clearly and movingly) some samples or glimpses of final victory." -J.R.R. Tolkien

"I know quite well that, to you as to me, the Church which once felt like a refuge, now often feels like a trap. There is nowhere else to go! (I wonder if this desperate feeling, the last state of loyally hanging on, was not, even more often than is actually recorded in the Gospels, felt by Our Lord’s followers in His earthly life-time?) I think there is nothing to do but pray, for the Church, the Vicar of Christ, and for ourselves; and meanwhile to exercise the virtue of loyalty, which indeed only becomes a virtue when one is under pressure to desert it." -J.R.R. Tolkien

"There is none so blind as he who will not agree with me." -someone else

Well, first of all, God will have all to be saved, and to come to a knowledge of the Truth.
Any feeling you have that you’re “hopeless” is not of God.
Don’t despair. Repent. If you haven’t gone to Confession, resolve to do so ASAP.
in the meantime, tell Christ you’re sorry for what you’ve done. Tell Him you love Him. Ask Him to increase  your love for Him. Ask Him to increase your sorrow. Ask Our Lady to obtain the grace of perfect contrition  from Her Son for you.

If you have committed a truly mortal sin — viz. a grave sin done with full knowledge & full consent of the will — then, as above, confess your sin(s) to God by making a perfect act of contrition, and then get to Confession ASAP.

If you are prone to scruples (which you may or may not be, I don’t know), ask yourself this: would you feel comfortable placing your hand on the Bible and saying with complete confidence that what you did was a mortal sin? 

This is not to minimize grave sin. Grave sins need to be confessed, but scruples are also very real. 
in any event, just make an appointment to confess your sins. Period. You can’t go wrong with this option.

If you're in a state of mortal sin, try to make an act of perfect contrition. Perfect contrition can put you back in a state of grace. This short tract describes how to obtain it. https://www.ecatholic2000.com/cts/untitled-110.shtml

Also, speak with your priest about enrolling in the brown scapular!
