Hey, I know exactly how you feel.Seriously, it all comes down to the good fight.
Do you believe you are a good person?
Do you believe that your values are good and live by them?
Do you sway away the best you can from temptations?
I have been really tough times, many times I could have just gave up.
And I know I will fall again, who doesn't. We get back up, fight the good fight till then end...and you win!
Thanks for the motivation, my friend. Unfortunatly, it's not always so easy to get up from some of those knockdowns. Sometimes, one just doesnt
want to even bother for the reality of some peoples lives are that which a person simply does not want to pick themselves up from. Ever been so tired
that it hurt? Kinda like that.
I believe I'm a very loving and caring person. I have friends in abundance. I have a family that thinks much higher of me than I give myself
credit. I live by what I feel are sound moral values. I generaly shy away from temptation for the most part. And yeah, I feel that there are other
far more worse off than I.
Sometimes, you can take a person who's on top of the world, and rip away their one true love, and sometimes you'll end up with a person that doesnt
care to breathe any longer.
So, just with the examples I have given, maybe you see more where I'm comming from. Sometimes we endure. Sometimes we become stronger by what
we've been through. Sometimes we just deal with it so much, it's not even worth the fight anymore. I'm at the point where I would really love to
stop running this endless mile, and close my eyes for a long, undisturbed rest, but there still seems to be alot of distance left.
Thanks for the reply though. It's just difficult for some, wether they believe or not. It's worse when one believes with all their heart and find
that what they belived so truely in, doesnt seem to return the love when that person is at their lowest. This is what bothers me. So much faith, yet
when in desperate need, faith is all we seem to have, with no remedy. Just faith. It's seems harsh by our human standards to turn away from those
that need you, why does it seem to be that way in faith/spiritualism as well? These are answers no one can answer for me. Yet, I still ask, in hopes
of one. That also, is a form of faith.
I just get the feeling that something is not right, something is missing. Perhaps that one we pray to? I'd hate to sound so sacrelige, but one cant
help but doubt in times like these than to have faith. Faith seems to be only for the afterlife, were as, we deal in suffering here daily.
Live a life of hell just so you can live an afterlife of heaven.... why do we even need to stop here? Why not just heaven? Must there be a learning
experiance? After all, we dont seem to do to well in that dept.
