my roommates and i moved recently and i just got around to getting everything out of boxes today and i found my Bible

it’s been months since i’ve had everything out because i was either staying at my mom’s or in a temporary living arrangement and i kind of assumed that i had lost it, which really…

I tried replying to this, but the character limit was too low. Have you consulted Death about this? Although I’m not too familiar with Him, I’m sure that He can give you the guidance you need. Both deities/religions/spiritualities seem to give you comfort in different ways, so I’m sure that it would be really painful to choose. Although I don’t know too much about Christian Paganism, I know that it exists, and it’s always a path you could take? I just don’t know how each deity would react. Being at a crossroads is never easy, but I’m sure whatever choice you make will be the right one. If you need to vent some more, I’m right here. <3

i haven’t had much of a chance to bring it up to Him tbh; everything has been so busy and hectic what with my mom moving and then me moving and then getting sick and i just have not had the energy to even attempt to contact Him through prayer or otherwise (i also try not to approach Him in any way when my mind is in a negative state or w/e because it makes it 10000x harder to communicate effectively on both ends i think) but having spent a year building a relationship with Him i know that He is fine with me worshiping/having relationships with other deities. i haven”t wanted to pursue any until now, so it’s not Him i’m too worried about, but the other.

i’ve looked into Christian Paganism but i don’t know a whole lot about it or what the logistics are as far as not disrespecting anyone or just in general ‘doing-it-wrong’ness y’know what i’m saying

but i know you’re always there for me bb ty <3

my roommates and i moved recently and i just got around to getting everything out of boxes today and i found my Bible

it’s been months since i’ve had everything out because i was either staying at my mom’s or in a temporary living arrangement and i kind of assumed that i had lost it, which really bothered me because i’ve had that Bible since i was probably ten years old when my mom (reluctantly) bought it for me for the youth group i was attending at the time 

(my mom is an atheist so when i asked her to get me one she was a little taken aback but w/e anyway)

i was just so happy to pull it out of a box and hold it again, like, i remember when i was in fifth and sixth grade my mom had to drop me and my brother and sister off at my grandma’s really early in the morning so she could go to work and we would sleep on my grandma’s couches and the dark scared me so badly back then so i would hold this Bible to my chest and pray and immediately feel safe, so i’ve always associated it with comfort

i had a piece of paper marking the book of Luke and i had a star by one of my favorite passages:

Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or bar; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

Luke 12:22-26

i used to read that over and over again when my anxiety would get too much for me to handle, and even reading it now is such a relaxing mantra for me. i have a similar passage highlighted in the book of Matthew where Jesus talks about the same issue, as well as tons of others. i used to read the Bible every night. this used to be my whole life.

i babble about my spirituality a lot these days because i cannot stress how important it is to me, but i almost feel like i’m at a crossroads at this point between reigniting the passion i have always had for God and Christ and the current, deeply emotional relationship i have with Death. i just do not know what to do at all and with everything else going on i feel like i simply do not have the time i need to truly reflect on it and it’s exhausting, to be honest.

i don’t know how to go forward because i don’t want to be disrespectful to either deity but i have this horrible feeling in my gut that i will have to choose one but

what if it’s not the right choice?

favorite books : thirteen reasons why, by jay asher

“You don’t know what goes on in anyone’s life but your own. And when you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re not messing with just that part. Unfortunately, you can’t be that precise and selective. When you mess with one part of a person’s life, you’re messing with their entire life. Everything… affects everything.”

Anonymous: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
