    I used to believe in God pray daily but I can't do it anymore lying to myself that everything will be better and that God will help because it is not true.I am thankful for food,a roof under my head etc.But I just want to feel happy the past couple year has been hell I had struggled with anxiety etc.I hate being a child born out of wedlock I hate the fact that my step-father will never love me as his own he can lie all he wants but I don't think anyone can or will love me I am not good enough to be loved.

    Live to live, not to serve a God. That is how I see it, is there a God? I don't know, I don't think there is one but I nor anyone else knows the answers. I don't see why people worry so much about the topic, either way if you believe there is or there isn't it won't change what happens to you in the after life with what is already set, so just enjoy the most of life.

    Hi OP. Sorry to read about how you are feeling atm. May I ask - are you undergoing - or have you ever undergone - any talking treatments, eg. counselling or therapy? Have you seen your GP about your anxiety?

    Many people have experienced the same. The problem is that you do not know what God is actually saying so you just ask for what you think, Jesus said to ask for his will ...

    His will is that you lay down your agenda and "come as a child", He says you need to be born again, i.e. to receive something you were not born with .. His Spirit.

    This is what all the disciples received:

    "they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues*, as the Spirit gave them utterance"
    (Acts 2:4)


    * an unlearned prayer language that God leads all his children in - 1 Corinthians 14:2, 4

    ... and what all true disciples of Jesus still receive!

    I hope you will visit one meeting, or at least get in contact. Whereaboutrs are you?

    I would suggest you to go on a meditation course (It is free, and you can give a donation (no obligation) if you feel if it has helped).

    I went to a 10 day silent meditation retreat near Herefordshire at dipa.dhamma.org All food and accommodation is provided by past donations.

    I think it will help you immensely to face your problems, and help with your anxiety.

    Vipassana meditation is an ancient technique of self-introspection. It has been preserved in its original purity and handed down through the generations. It is non-sectarian and open to anyone in reasonable physical and mental health.

    you sound like a sensitive, thoughtful person : why should you not be loved ? so, take heart, and try, step by step, to build up some confidence

    by the way, try having a roof over your head, not just under it : it improves the situation a lot

    best
