I Don't Know What to Believe

    Hey there, I figured it was the only place to

    talk about it since I'm too ashamed to tell anyone, even my closest friends. I'm a 20-year-old male living with my parents and right now I'm confused. Long story short: my father has been cheating on my mom for 3 years. We discovered last week when he eventually admitted it (my...

    So Depressed...

    Its so sad. A while ago, I was tormented as a child, and it made me so unconfident. I switched schools alot, and kids treated me bady there, too. The one place that I stayed at and made friends, they weren't really my friends. They ignored me, abused me, and used me. They...

    Don't Know...

    I don't know what's the truth, and honestly I don't care. I do know what I do believe, and what I feel is the truth... But I also know its likely vastly different from what you believe. I don't know what I *should* believe, but I do know what I *do* believe. :D

    Who Knows?

    How do we know what Heaven is? How do we know what Hell is? Do you actually trust an old long book? When you die...you're dead, there is no Heaven or Hell. When you take your last breathe and close your eyes, all you will see is a long vivid summary of your life, the life that...

    What's the Truth?

    I really just want to know the truth. I hate being deceived. The thing I'm really confused about now is religion. If you want to know about that, you can read my story "I Couldn't Stand It" in the group "I Lost My Religion." But I hate how there's so much uncertainty about...
