I think practicing christianity can be really helpful for people. Makes me feel better and more mentally healthy. Positive about life etc. Indeed! I totally agree with what you said. It actually contributed a lot in building my values when I was a kid. In general, their idea made me "kind." Haha! Religion is such a broad and sensitive topic that's why I often refrain from talking about it. However, that would be a nice entry for my quick fact section. Thanks, @Erik2.0. 😁👍 ---------------------------------- Remaining Days: 36 days (July 6, 2020 - Monday) Quick Fact About Me: In line with my conversation with Erik2.0, I'd like to take the chance to tell you my religious beliefs. I do not intend to offend, persuade, change the perspective, or even trigger the thought of questioning anybody's belief. This is just a fact about me. 😂 Throughout my childhood, I've been following the Catholic way of living until we studied—in our Filipino literature high school subject—Dr. Jose Rizal's novel titled Noli Me Tángere. I became very interested in that particular subject which made me question the beliefs and practices of my religion. The next year of high school, we had to study its sequel El Filibusterismo—my turning point. After "analyzing, Googling, and asking the opinion of others," as well as the reinforcement of my "young and stupid mind," I decided to stop believing in God. I was 16 back then—unsure, confused and always been evading religion conversations. My parents didn't know that I wasn't believing anymore; my siblings had an idea. I still go to church with them but was not praying nor listening. All the lectures and readings that I hear had been deflected and countered by my thoughts. For 8 years—starting college until the peak of my gaming career—I believed I was an atheist. I don't need others' approval nor do I need to explain myself to others. I just believed, that time, while studying sciences, that there is no God. And so, during those years, in order to ease the conflict and to avoid debates, I always say, "I'm a catholic...by papers." Eventually, for some accumulated reasons, I became an agnostic for a while. It was the time when I've been in my happy universe. 👌 Because of smoking, my perspective shifted drastically. I started to legitimately care for my parents and siblings and to give importance to what makes me happy (a factor that made me to play more). That time, those two things are what matter to me most. Then, our events place business was established. I'm still playing that time though. There are so many things (mostly emotional challenges) that had happened after graduating college until the time that our family business started. I was ultimately depressed and exhausted with my life. Why are these events related to my religious beliefs? A day had come, just another regular day, that I cried myself out because of the only reason that after all I've been through, I'm still here living a happy and contented life. It was at that moment that I realized, even though I neglected Him, God never abandoned me. Feels Today: I feel lazy this afternoon—cancelled my tutor session. 😅 Today, is mostly "socialization day." Crap, I feel unproductive in these kind of days. But, I know I need it. I also need break time for being "alone." 😂 Daily Quest: This morning, I continued reading the Market Wizard. I went home to help preparing the lunch then went back here at the venue with my siblings. They like to study and work here. I don't know, maybe because of the "ambiance." This afternoon, I just talked to my friends regarding there business ideas. We're planning to join the online seller bandwagon. 😅 Later, after dinner, I'll be meeting with my friends via zoom to talk about possible businesses. They really like to start something; in my part, I'm kind of not confident since I got so many in my hands. Later too, I'll be presenting the mock website for the company of my cousin's husband. I hope they'd like it. I'll try to make the exponents module until I feel sleepy since it was supposed to be continued this afternoon. Quest Log: ✔️ I was able to finish the "homepage" of my cousin's website. ✔️ Exercised as soon as I wake up Incomplete Quest:make images for the vlog (area of square), update google drive, exponents module Picture Picture: One of my remembrance with Blizzard (I still have remaining Diablo and Sylvanas (UNI QLO) t-shirts on sale too lmao!). Attached to this Hearthstone lanyard are my keys for the events place. In the picture it has no keys, because I removed it so that I can post it on our "local eBay" so that my friend can "buy" it and leave me a positive review. Hahaha! 🤣How Can I Be Better? By accepting who I am and being open to other people's perspective ---------------------------------- Good evening! 😄 Til tomorrow,Chiliflavor 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
