Bored? Stuck at home all day? I've got JUST the thing for you.

Adult coloring books. Tongue

Ok, carry on.

I have been doing this off an on for several weeks. I am too stressed to really concentrate on other things so I listen to podcasts or music and color.

This weekend I may dig out a sewing project since I usually start sewing about this time of year...until the stitchery mood strikes I will be coloring.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Religion, particularly one you are indoctrinated with from early childhood, has a profound psychological effect on you. Emotions are an automated response to your deeply held premises. Until you remove all vestiges of god belief and the indoctrination you have, you will likely have these feelings of doubt.

What helped me was the adoption of the philosophy of reason and checking every premise I held. I now no longer have any doubts because I know what I know and more importantly the process I went through to validate that knowledge.
Being indoctrinated from childhood, part of that is being indoctrinated not to question. So it's taken me a while after departing from Christianity, to feel comfortable just questioning, and being unafraid that a god might smite me. lol I'm in a far better place with it all than when I first posted this thread. Smile

As I get older, I find myself not really caring as much about the question of god's existence. But I do subject my outlook to review periodically in order to be sure that I'm not being complacent or mentally lazy.
Feelings are all what religion, and the belief in deities is all about, when you stop to think about it. Last year my grandmother was declining in health, and that is when a lot of this started for me. I felt like I needed to cling to some sort of belief system, even though I also announced to many in my life that I felt my view was atheistic. Like I said above, after she died, then I really crashed for a little bit, but now...I'm in a far better place and maybe I needed to go through all of that turmoil inside of myself...to find myself.

Barnes & Nobles has a whole bunch of them. In my store, they were in the front foyer. Otherwise, check the "kits" section.

Amazon has a bunch of them too and you can view a few pages of each one to see if it's something you are interested in or not.

I can't even watch a movie at the moment. I think it's the drugs I'm on. I just keep watching music clips on youtube. I can't concentrate very well. And nobody is posting! Sad

I may need to join another site as well.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
