Seriously considering resignation

So if you have read my posts you will see that I think Brian's essay on how to stay in the Church is amazing, and all of your insights have proven so supporting and helpful. However, I am really considering resigning and want to just throw my thinking out there in hopes you all can point out flaw or...

Re: Losing my mind

Good job getting it out there, OTF. Tons of great thoughts in the reply. The only thing I would add is that when I feel this way, cause I have felt the EXACT same things, I go back to my study of THE ESSAY (http://www.staylds.com/?page_id=462) . It is long, but I took like three hours to actually jo...

Re: Redefining my beliefs

So I am left, leaning on my own shaky legs for the first time. Not taking the words of the GAs as automatic scripture for the first time. Feeling the closest to God I have ever felt. Feeling guilty because I'm not doing the "supposed to" of blind faith. Feeling guilty because my spouse has told me ...

Re: Monitored and Watched

Oh man! Sorry. So then I am a little scared, because I am doing tithing that way. I was thinking about donating to the HUmanitarian stuff like Fast Offering or the perpetual education fund. I justified that I was trading up my Mormonism, and that I could truthfully answer that I was keeping the law ...

Re: Garments and body image

So I'm left with the decision of do I get married in the temple or not? Should I make commitments to God knowing that I probably will not be keeping them? It's also spiraling me downward in the rest of my beliefs a little bit, because if I don't believe garments are necessary-which I'm pretty sure ...

Re: Help with anger

broofturker I do NLP emotional release processing. I totally agree in releasing emotions and giving them to God.(I may have interpreted what you said to my own beliefs/actions. So excuse me if that isn't what you meant). I do this during mediation, sacrament, before I fall asleep. Whenever I feel "...

Re: Help with anger

DW places a high value on what others think so for her embarrassment might lead to anger. Embarrassment is a very uncomfortable emotion and anger feels more comfortable. For me my trigger is feeling disrespected and that can lead quickly to anger. This might translate in a church setting to someone...

Re: Help with anger

... anger is a secondary emotion, the tip of the iceburg, that can subside as we address the emotions that make the rest of the iceburg, and maybe even give them to God. Thanks for your post. If I'm missing something, I'm sorry, but what do you think the primary emotion is? The primary emotionS (Th...
