Idk. I'm probably just not in a good headspace today and that's all it is. But I feel like I don't really contribute to the forum. I don't do much in the way of disagreement topics.....sometimes they go over my head or I just don't know enough about it to comment on it, and even when it's something I can comment on, I prefer to leave it than say much because controversy gives me bad anxiety. Unless it's something I feel strongly on (a certain hanful of topics), then I get way too involved which also gives me bad anxiety.
I should try to get more into actual theology than I have, but like. Through a book or something. I get lost with conversations.

Wow. Wish you had made this thread sooner.
It's an honest question maybe many of us want to ask.
I'm older (63) and male. We may struggle to have common interest. Plus I've lost touch with young generation thinking. I can be pretty old fashioned too.
I don't know you well enough except your anxiety you mentioned. I can relate to that. And in the workplace. The same sex attraction topic is challenging for me. I'm evolving on it as I don't quite understand it.
Don't worry. You are a good egg.

I can relate to the theology conversations getting a little "heavy" for me too. I like to think on these things, but I have to be spoon fed as I too have severe anxiety distractions. Sometimes I feel my brain is trying to multi-task by running 2 or 3 trains of thought simultaneously. I hope and pray you continue to stay and share with us.

I like you.
Your boldness to discuss very personal things has made me braver.

I used to have anxiety about many things. One day many years ago a man prayed for me that my spirit would be strengthened. It took a long time, but that prayer was answered eventually, and possibly still being answered. I still have anxiety about some things, but greatly diminished. Once I was driven by fear, now it's mostly faith. So don't pressure yourself, but do get in the business of learning about Christ. The Christian life is not a cram session for a final test. It's a slow and steady walk toward the City of Light.

evenifigoalone you are very much loved and what you do contribute helps us to grow in knowledge and compassion for one another, especially when one struggles we can help them through it if we can. I hope you stay with us and just reply to the forums you are comfortable with as it will help with your anxiety :hug

Sure I like you. Why not? You make some pretty cool and profound posts sometimes. Other times you're quirky female side shows but so what? Everybody knows a kooky female, lol. We got ours here too. But don't let that chase you away if everyone doesn't always give you as much validation as you'd like.

So what. Everyone doesn't have the same experiences in life so they don't think exactly alike, so they wont be able to have your exact perspective about issues. I don't think you can really take offense at that. It would be a mistake if you quit the forum cuz one or two say something that stings you. I like you because you stand up for what you believe in. You should be able to take one on the chin sometimes and with no sweat though.. If you let the riff raff chase you away then they win. Be stoic and you'll live right through it.

I haven't been on this forum many months so I haven't seen many of your posts, but you seem like a nice person.

I've been on net/webforums and social networks for years and never found any friends or anyone I really click with. I think it is impossible to have meaningful relationships on the net/web forums. Though I see alot of people get more likes than I do, so maybe thats just me because I'm so different & autistic.

It is also known fact that net/web forums in general do have alot of mean people posting in them. I've hardly ever found any positive posters, mostly only people who disagree.

Some people also assume we are mind readers. But "we don't know what you think if you don't say it".

Everyone has something special to contribute, no one knows everything, otherwise we'd all be proud. There are times when there may be no topics we can comment, and times when there are.

Its interesting that in this age of all being so pro globalist all being "One" that there are so many divisions and lonely etc.

"love edifies, knowledge puffs up"
"speak the truth in love"
"do unto others as you would have done to you"
