what can I say, what can I write

Hello there.
It's been a while since I posted something here. probably many moons, probably a couple years. I made sum friends here and it seems a few of them are still here, so some may also remember me.

I took a leave of this place because I was overwhelmed with the stories I read and my own story. I was angry that some people left, didnt come back, and who knows what happened to them. I was angry that some had success and making it; overcame mb/p. Angry that I am powerless. Angry that good things didn't happen for me. Angry that I don't have the support I need. Angry that I couldn't have the spirit or spiritual experiences.

I was ex'd in 2005 and hv been now rebaptised (Sept/2013) and this has all been an interesting experience for me. I do feel that my story is unique in a few ways, but way common in others.

I plan to come back to this site and post some more. Not totally sure whay I will say, but I'm sure it will come to me. I have to rethink my recovery plan, and start anew, and this site maybe part of it.

"By emulating the Master, who endured temptations but “gave no heed unto them,” we, too, can live in a world filled with temptations “such as [are] common to man”. Of course Jesus noticed the tremendous temptations that came to him, but He did not process and reprocess them. Instead, He rejected them promptly. If we entertain temptations, soon they begin entertaining us! Turning these unwanted lodgers away at the doorstep of the mind is one way of giving “no heed.” Besides, these would-be lodgers are actually barbarians who, if admitted, can be evicted only with great trauma."
