I find myself continually trying to recall sins that I have forgotten to confess. While doing so, I get wrapped up in sins that I have already confessed/repented of. Should I continue on this back thought brainstorming, or just try to move forward and not sin anymore?

Do not tangle yourself with the past. Confess the sins that you remember not having confessed before, and move on. Get into the habit of writing down your sins every night as you pray; and have a daily self-examination in order to be ready for confession. If you truly repent of and confess your sins, be sure that our Lord not only forgives but also forgets them. Strive to have a new start; asking the Lord from all your heart not to lead you into temptations but to deliver you from evil.
