  1. To christian guys

    Yes I'd want her. She'd still be worthy...but whether she believes so herself is unfortunately the bigger issue. :/ ...but all things are possible with faith.
  2. What is your favorite Bible Scripture?

    John 3:6-7 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again'. 1 Corinthians 15:46-49 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven. 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven. 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.
  3. Self-Confidence In Christ

    Good first lesson. I used to host and lead bible study every 3rd Saturday at a family's home, so believe me, I know how hard that first lesson is lol. It was so hard to stay focus with all eyes on me; lost my train of thought several times...but thankfully my family was very loving and forgiving. If you get nervous and start to loose focus, don't focus on how many ppl *will* see your video. Treat it as if you're talking to just 1 person; like your best friend. There's only one eye on you, your camera. Teach that camera your lesson lol. Also, maybe add some subtitles to appear when you transition to the next subtopic. The visual cues will help break up the lesson into smaller if someone needs to come back to it later to finish up. You can timestamp link your subtopics in your video description. Finally, I suggest you *keep making videos*!! You'll get better and better. Good job.

  12. Hey DHZ! Believe me, the following really works: 1. Make a list of the top 10 things you'd like to be/do/have 2. Stand in front of a mirror in privacy 3. Take one item from your list, look yourself square in the eyes and say that you are/have/are doing that item on your list. 4. Say it again, only more convinced that it's actually true. 5. Say it yet again. 6. Stand there eye to eye and hear what you just said, letting it sink in. 7. Repeat for the next item. Do this at least every morning and evening if you can't do it as often as you feel defeated, until you are convinced of what you are being told. What you keep telling yourself will begin resonating in your mind more and more strongly each day. Eventually your actions will follow your belief to where you start progressing towards those things becoming reality.

  14. Am I in an abusive relationship?

    Yes yes yes. I was a victim of this with my ex girlfriend. She did all of these things to me. I finally started questioning my sanity or memory of events when she would gaslight. Before I knew the official term for it I just called it her "revisionist history tactic". I'd make a statement regarding something and if she didn't like what I said she'd immediately tell me I said something entirely different and that it hurt or offended her (0_o??), making me out to be the bad guy. Then I'd spend so much time and energy trying to convince her that I hadn't *just* said what she was accusing me of, that after a while I was so exhausted and frustrated that I didn't care to change her mind. Eventually I started keeping records of texts (screenshots) just for proof to end her gaslighting...a bit extreme, I know. But the crazy thing is, she'd still deny the proof! :0 But great post Geraldine. I'd add, a few more warning signs to look out for are: - Beware of those who quickly place you on pedestals (e.g. "you are perfect; the most wonderful man/woman in the world."), it's most likely a setup and manipulative tactic to gain control of your self-esteem so that when necessary they can crush it by calling you the cruelest person they've ever known. Admiration of your SO is normal but excessive over-exaggeration of how great you are is suspect. - Beware of those who accelerate through the relationship very quickly (e.g. [week 2 of knowing them] "we are soulmates! I think we should get married!"), telltale sign of trying to control the relationship. Ask yourself why they're trying to rush things - Beware of triangulation: intentionally comparing you with an ex/"friend"/potential suitor they know who's trying to pursue them; passively threatening to go to them to receive what you're apparently not providing. - Beware of those who change the rules on you frequently (e.g. "I want to marry" then weeks later "Marriage isn't for me. I'd feel caged; trapped" then weeks later "we need to marry"). This one is primarily a tactic of Narcissistic or Borderlines meant to keep you guessing as to how to actually please them. Everyone at their core is a certain way, and in the natural course of a relationship your significant other will/should begin to learn you; to get to know you better. But those seeking to emotionally/psychologically abuse you don't want you to know them at their core so that you will always be in error. - Beware of those who admire abusers or bullies in their past, praising how well they were bullied and abused by them. We typically emulate those who we admire.
