• Does this sound like a toxic friendship that needs to end? What should I do?

    I'm a Christian and my main group of friends has been a group of non-Christians for a while now up until a few months ago.

    I'm a Christian and my main group of friends has been a group of non-Christians for a while now up until a few months ago. I now have Christian friends that make me feel so loved and appreciated whereas my non-Christian friends seem to gossip about me (one time they even did it while I was in the same room, literally a few feet away from them) and each other, they have flat out ignored some of the insults and disrespect they've shown to me in the past and pretend like it's no big deal and they also seem to lie to me if I'm not mistaken. They have hurt me several times on numerous occasions because they don't agree with me about Christianity at all and I've tried being a godly light to them. On the other hand, I have rarely brought up these problems to them in the hopes of reconciling due to the insecurity I have that they just won't care or will disagree and will ignore them and act self-righteous. They have in the past before. I feel selfish to be honest. I feel like I haven't cared enough about how they've been affected by my own mistakes. But I try to listen to their venting when they express anger. It's come to the point now where I just don't care to have any of them around anymore. I just want Christian friends, but I understand that it's important to reach out to the lost. These non Christian friends may very well be a big reason as to why I am taking anti-depressants now to treat my depression. Christians/disciples of Christ, what are your thoughts?

  • What does it mean when a girl offers her room for the night for one of her guy friends? Is it just friendship or something more?

    My guy friend was having trouble with his roommate at my college once. It caused him to lose sleep and my friend who is a girl asked him if he wanted to sleep in her room for the night and he said no. I freaked out a little when she asked this cuz it made me wonder if she was trying something with him. She has a boyfriend by the way. What do you think?

    I've been playing these games since I was a 5 year old. I'm 19 now. I am trying to devote myself to God as much as I can so I want to keep myself from playing any games that have sinful elements like violence and witchcraft and what not. In the Spyro games, you are assisted by a fairy that uses her spell wand to help you save your game. Also, in "Ripto's Rage", there is a "magic" book that doesn't technically need to be used to play the game but is basically a guide to use throughout the game. Is this witchcraft? Should I continue playing? What games would you recommend me playing that aren't sinful?

  • Why do I hate making phone calls so much?

    When it comes to customer service and people that I don't know very well, phone calls is something that I seem to suffer anxiety from. I am technically an introvert, so I know that most people like me don't enjoy them either but I feel like its abnormal to react this way to phone calls.

    I am afraid of getting a job just for the sake of money. I know I have to start off somewhere and get experience for more professional and overall better jobs but what if I get a job that I hate every second of everyday and get depressed? Sorry, I don't have much job experience. That's how one of my jobs went. Every second of every day I was depressed and felt like a failure and not good enough to do even the simplest things. I've had two in the last two years (one as a busboy which really stunk) and the other just made me extremely nervous and gave me anxiety every day even though it wasn't that bad. I have a job interview today and I'm nervous because I feel like I'm just going to hate the job. I'm very pessimistic about it. I know I'm probably just freaking out but everyone seems to get excited while I'm just sighing and worrying about it.

    This guy who I met at the beginning of the semester is obsessed with me and always wants to talk to me and be around me but I told him he cant because he is annoying and uncomfortable to me. He confessed his feelings for me but apparently he isn't in to guys. He is just attracted to me and me only. I told him I dont feel the same way and I was nice and respectful to him as much as I could. He suggested just being a friend with me and I thought that was fine so I agreed. So apparently all he wants is to be my "friend" but even now he is still too much for me to deal with. He still follows me around even when he isn't invited. Not all the time. Even now I've been needing to avoid him because he is always talking about how awesome I am and he just says inappropriate things a lot. I talked to my mother and she said that I should cut him out of my life completely if he has been getting on my nerves (which he has). So I did that, deleted him off of facebook and told him the truth that he is bothering me and making me uncomfortable and that Im going to stop texting him and talking to him. I'd like to note that this kid used to try to find me just so he could talk to me. He started hanging out on my floor and not his because of that and other reasons too of course but thats just another thing.Anyway, My parents and some of my friends seem to be in agreement that this guy is obsessed with me and that I should get security of some sort if anything violent or wrong starts to happen.

    There's this kid who goes to my university with me and he lives in the same residents hall as me. He seemed like a nice kid at first but ever since hanging out with him he has become attached to me and my friends like glue and he rarely leaves us alone. He seems troubled. He apparently got in trouble by the dean for threatening to "Ray Rice" some girl on his floor. He told us he hates his floor which is why he comes to ours, and he seems to have an abused past. I feel bad for him and I don't want to make his situation worse by telling him to leave us alone but he annoys me and a lot of other people in the dorm. Its gotten to the point where I have to hide from him and it makes me feel bad about both of us. I dont think anyone seems to like being around him because of how he acts and what he says to others. And he has said a lot of stuff that you shouldn't talk about in public. What do I do? I have been avoiding him, and because of this, I've had to avoid my friends too because he's always around them even though they don't want him around. Please help. Thanks!

  • What does Mark 10:44 in the Bible mean?

    What is it telling us? What exactly is "first" and "great" in accordance to the modern world? Our superiors? I have gathered that it means to serve others and not desire to be served. Is that right?

    Some people find that I'm kind of awkward, or maybe its just me. I usually have trouble finding the right words to speak when I'm sharing a story or teaching someone something. It doesn't always happen with a group. It can happen with just one person around. I feel that I take longer to say things or overthink what im trying to say and it leads people to get disinterested in the conversation because I am frequently pausing or stuttering. Depending on the conversation, I can talk gracefully and comfortably without having to worry about confusing someone or annoying them. I feel like my mind just naturally can't process the right words as much as extroverts can because I'm an introvert. I need to think more before I say it. Are all introverts like this? Or is it just me?

Whenever I see something or hear something terrible on tv like a car crash or whatever terrible thing is on the news, I merely give it a thought and that's all. My parents are usually more animated (or sad depending on what happened) and I'm just like "Well that sucks..." It doesn't seem normal to me. I feel like a caring guy though which is why I'm confused.

I hate that crap and so many people at school seem to do it. I could care less how they think about my opinion on it but I know I'll be surrounded by a lot of these people. I don't give a damn about alcohol. I'm fine with it as long as people know how to handle themselves with the stuff. I like drinking beer, I don't know about wine or vodka or all that hard stuff but I won't complain if someone brought a six pack and we just chilled out, played video games, listened to music, (at a much lower volume lol) played cards, etc. THAT's a party to me! :) And I can't stand it when I hear about people hooking up at a house party. I don't know, it upsets me for some reason... Can they still be one of the best years of your life?

Sometimes while trying to focus I hear something that reminds me of something else or I see something that I can't help but be curious about and then I start to go off track and get so deep in my thoughts that I don't even realize I lost track of what is going on in class until my brain tells me "DUDE! Your teacher is talking! Its most likely important!" This also happens when someone is just making conversation with me and even if it isn't small talk, which introverts hate to have for conversations, I get easily distracted by small sounds like footsteps in the hallway, or who is snoring during class, then when my brain reminds me to focus again, I have already lost track of what the conversation was about and in my head I'm thinking, "Oh crap, what's going on?"
