You don't get to hide behind your religion and judge others for what your perceive their walk with God to be. That is between them and God. Hate has nothing to do with God. You think that you are hiding within your holier-than-thou attitude, but you really just look cruel and close-minded. And you aren't fooling anybody but yourself.

HONESTLY, I hope your family understands healthy separation and the meaning of LOVE. Because it is a whole ton easier when this is not a hurdle that needs to be climbed, jumped, burned, argued over repeatedly, revisited constantly, and then, hopefully, eventually, sunk with an anchor in the farthest depths of the darkest oceans.
As we know, another key to reducing inflammation is keeping the fake and refined sugar out of our diets. If I do use sugar in our home for healthy treats, I stick to real, organic maple sugar, and raw, local honey, and I don't bake every day!
Have you ever had the experience of trying to communicate with someone who really doesn't like to talk about anything that has depth or substance? Rather, they are quite happy to talk about the weather, gossip about others, or wax... Continue Reading →
"The big people around you, through their silence and inability or unwillingness to help you, sent you the very loud and clear message that you were not worthy of help."
