    Embarrassed

    I am Christian and I attend church often but I always feel awkward when it is time to come to the podium and pray. I know we all have our different ways of talking to God but compared to preachers, I feel like my prayers are being said wrong. That is why I never pray aloud.

    Prayer is for everyone.

    You don't have to believe in prayer for prayer to work. There are lots of prayer sites where people will pray for you. What have you got to lose?

    That dreams are there to reach, and some are meant to let go of. I learned that sometimes holding on can be the unhealthest of things and letting go will feel better.

    I feel like couples that don't live near each other form stronger connections and you can learn more about them, before having to meet them in person.
