    Dealing with the feeling of “good girl” entitlement

    I wish that was where I was at, where I was doing exceptionally well and not getting recognized. Instead I’m doing poorly and being seen for how poorly I’m doing. It’s so frustrating though. I know in my mind that I’m trying to do better, and I’m trying to default to the position of “my...

    Is Catholicism the Oldest Christian Faith?

    Well at that point I think the oldest Christian doctrine was in the early churches. “We preach Christ crucified.” It didn’t need a label at that point, it was just a Christ follower.

    Dealing with the feeling of “good girl” entitlement

    Yeah I get that. A lot of times getting to the core of it helps to deal with it, or at least for the sudden appearance of the bad emotions not to seem so sudden and confusing. More about the words of affirmation I think I can attest to that being part of me. Because I just found out I had...

    Prayer for my jaw

    So I finally was able to catch myself during when I was doing my daily activities, and found that when I’m going around that I unintentionally lock my jaw with it slightly open. It’s not open or closed, but it’s just in the same position for hours as I’m running around. Maybe it was a way for...

    Dealing with the feeling of “good girl” entitlement

    I noticed something about myself lately. Al my life I’ve been a good child/teen, did as I was told (ish) and would often get rewarded for my good behavior. An extra treat, a word of praise, a toy - something. This was pretty constant through my formative years. Now I’m an adult, 29, and I...

    Prayer for my jaw

    I noticed when I wake up in the morning it feels fine, but during the day it gets more tense and soar. So it has to do with something I’m doing during the day. Either clenching it or unintentionally stressing it somehow

    Prayer for my jaw

    I’m wondering if maybe I’ve been clenching my jaw too much. My work has ramped up being a shelter, so I’ve been a bit mire stressed...

    Prayer for my jaw

    So I knocked my head pretty good a couple weeks ago, and I noticed when I did my jaw kinda got wiplashed a little. Haven’t thought much of it til today when it’s been hurting, sore, stiff, and I notice I can’t bite down fully unless I try really hard on that side. Also there is a weird space...

    If You Were Married...

    Ideal life? Hmm....well I would have a husband that was different enough from me so that my viewpoint would be challenged (in a good way) and widened, a pet, my own place, and a good job.

    Tell us something interesting (random facts thread)

    When a cat boops you with it’s nose or cheek it’s referred to as “bunting.” Cats have scent glands on their cheeks so that when they rub up against something they’re saying “this is mine.” Or in a human’s case it means “This is my person.”

    “Why do bad things happen to good people”

    I’ve heard that question very often, and always had a cool answer of “I don’t know but I know God is in control.” That answer had always been sufficient for me. For some reason in reading part of Leviticus yesterday, when it came to the Levites killing part of the tribes of Israel after the...
