    Empty.

    Stop right there. Why suppose God is Creator? This looks like a 'personal connection' kind of topic.

    Even if there's a god, it's not like they can really know what are the performative steps you have to take to form a connection to god. Perhaps they're innocent and it's simple for them, but for a more mature and worldly mind twisted enough to comprehend scheming, the same steps simply won't take you there.

    Why do I have to endre this crap

    SB does need to understand that his fickle personality can annoy others. If he wants to be the way he is, he has to pay the price. You want to be you but people might dislike the real you. They have right to that. Your burden is yours to carry. Don't expect sympathy. I know I have very little to give. b) It's just a picture. It can only ruin you if you accompany it by whining about it on top of all.

    Advice?

    There's something pitiful and endearing about innocent, self-centered neediness, but when it's a grown adult doing it, it's annoying. It's not even innocent because she's making it sound like she's asking it for the children, definitely not herself. The next level would be to make the kids do the fundraising, door-to-door or something. Then you'd have to refuse the kids themselves and face their disappointment, lol.

    Advice?

    Well, it's not like you owe her the truth or even a solid reason. Just treat her as target practice.

    Need to Rant

    Anger may disappear or change into something else when you ascertain their motives. Acting as if they know all the answers can be just a way to assert authority. It's not that they necessarily care much for what they argue, they simply hold on to the positions that have proved useful in dealing with people who try to reason with them in good faith.

    Pondering

    Mythology sounds better. Don't hand them that.

    Guilt over leaving

    It is perfectly reasonable but it's probably impossible. If you were a prospective new member they just might cut you some slack at first. But you know it's different when it's someone already established. On some level they know how it all might just be wishful thinking. That is probably something most of them have to deny and not face. Hence, someone bringing into daylight what they are afraid of is a threat. Come out when you are ready to threaten them. That is, when you no longer stand to lose too much. Or never come out. I went the unenthusiasm route, where I simply said "nah, I don't wanna go to church, it's boring" etc. That didn't enrage my parents, only made them frustrated and helpless.

    Did you actually know God, before giving up?

    It's a position so weak it's kind of a defense in itself. Like why even bother engaging?
  10. Hey, the guy is doing something useful and good for once. It's the prodigal son coming home. I mean I get it, I've seen his show where distressed people called in for advice and he acted like their cult leader. Narcissism extravaganza. I wouldn't trust the guy either. But with some luck, acting for the right cause gives him a positive taste of what it is like to do some good.

    Just another Sunday

    Accept the guilt with pleasure. Take the credit. You won and he lost. Or at least you chose the winning side. He fought from a lame position so it's no big wonder he lost. Still, it's on him to accept the loss. Haha, his side even had god supposedly. How can he blame you?

    Just Forgive!

    I doubt anyone here has any idea what it's like to be in a shelter with your disability. Especially without knowing the nature of the disability. Here, you are the only one with the information necessary to make a rational decision. I've seen footage of abuse within elderly homes. The workers might hate their thankless, low-paying jobs and take it out on the patients. Even if they don't stoop that low they might simply take it as easy as possible at the patient's expense. It's a reality and a possibility many of us have to consider later in life. Sooner if you're disabled, I guess. It's possible you're in a situation with overwhelmingly highest possibility for bad outcomes. Still, it might be rational to gamble if a small chance of good outcome exists. I can also imagine that staying at home where the oppression is familiar and manageable can be the safe option. Maybe staying there is the rational choice in the end? Enduring whatever slights and neglect you must, but at least keep living and grabbing morsels of delight here and there. All I can say is I don't envy your circumstances.

    The weirdest thing is happening to me

    What? This is the internet. When it gets to be too much, you close the tab and take a break. There's no safer place to say whatever you want to try saying. Worst that can happen is you get banned. Assuming you haven't given out your details and made an enemy out of someone crazy. Only one who can save you is you. You can only trust people you're certain share an interest with you. And you can't really be certain, so always be vigilant. Professionals have to keep making money and helping you not need them anymore lowers their income. Relatives might be nearly as selfish, needing you for emotional support or to fulfill their fantasies of their ideal family without much concern for what you really want. Everyone who needs you to do something will say they treat you however they treat you out of love and concern. But the truth is, unless they truly respect your volition they're only furthering their own interests and yours will be obstacles to them.

    How Do I respond to Christian Friend?

    I dunno if what you respond matters much. She's super formal, preachy and makes verbose declarations but it's not like you must necessarily respond in kind. Just figure out how you feel about her attitude and whether you can deal with it and still enjoy her company. If you can imagine how hanging out with her would be now with her Jesus agenda declared, you probably know what must be stated if you're to keep hanging out. If you can't imagine it, then why say anything unnecessary before finding out?

    Holy shit. I hadn't read that before. Some confidence that Paul dude had. There's no reasoning with his attitude. I hope you can see the circularity of those arguments, though.
