Any Jewish Wizards here⁇

I was raised into some Ultra-Orthodox family. I had little to no exposure to sex or sexuality for the first 15 years of my life or so. Have not even started masturbating until the age of 16. while I am no longer a jew by religion. but I still hold some disgust towards the idea of sex and sexuality.

Escape from America

I want to get away from this godforsaken shithole. Not just because I hate it, but because living here I fear for my safety and security.

America is a country that is determined to March headlong into its own destruction. I’m not just talking about the hyperinflation, the self destructive foreign policy, or all the bullshit libtard stuff, but it’s very clear to me that we are in another “roaring twenties” like 100 years ago. All the signs are here: conformity, consumerism, the rat race, etc. The mindless Norman’s now are basically doing the same bullshit normie things as the ones 100 years ago. And if you remember what happened after the roaring twenties, this means we are fucked.

Staying here is a trap, it’s a ticking time bomb. I need to get out within a couple years or my life is going to get fucked forever. How do I get out of here and go to a halfway decent country? Somewhere first world. If mexispics, pajeets, chinks, and nogs can do it, then I can too, as someone who is whiter than Hitler himself.

Also, a word of advice for any American wizards: leave. It’s not safe for you to be here. The American economy doesn’t stay strong for long periods of time. History tells us that America has a recession every 10-20 years. This one is gonna be BIG.

My opinion on the USA after living there for several weeks

I am a Spaniard and I just visited my dad in the USA some days ago and I would say it's not a good place to live as a HikiNEET, except if you are rich or something. It's a hellish car-centered culture where you need a normalmobile even to go to the supermarket. I saw many obese people and old people working at Walmart. It's a wasteful country in many ways, wh n I was in the restaurant I would see them throwing tons upon tons of good food into the trash. Despite the face they can give it for free to the ones in need or sell it for half the price. many food and vital resources are wasted and people don't care. They eat tons of stuff even for breakfast. I visited also a restaurant and saw this humiliating tip culture, the waiters were desperate to cause a good impression. Also, there are no gibs, no free healthcare and many boomers who are obsessed with this postwar shitty work ethics thing and live in a delusional world in their mind. I know hating the USA in favor of Canada and Western Europe is mostly a tranny/reddit thing. But I actually understood everything when I spent some weeks there.

task discipline

Hello wizzies, I am wondering if any of you have any advice on maintaining discipline to stick to a set of tasks or practices. I feel like I am capable of a lot more but I just can't bring myself to do everything I'd like. I've often thought about how different my life would be if I could.

I know some of you like to read obscure books and the like. Have you read about any practices that might be useful for such a thing? I have tried to research this topic in the past but literally everything I come across is half-assed, useless crap.

Caffeine pills and nicotine patches long term

Anyone used caffeine pills long term?
Any real noticeable increase in focus, productivity at work/study?
Adderall is too strong for me, it does work but I teak a lot and sometimes it has the reverse effect, (tweak too much and get no work done), I tried lower doses but long term seems overkill.
Coffee is great, but drinking it a lot during the day have other problems, just like cigarettes.
Anyone here used caffeine pills or nicotine patches for 4 months or more?

When I arrive from work I usually relax and then study or work on a side hustle for a few hours at night, but I need that extra boost, drinking also doesn't help (makes me too comfortable and sleepy).

How do i convince my mom to let me NEET?

How can i convince my mom to let me not work and just live in some peace and quiet in my cave? How did you convince your parents to let you live with them without working anons? i have been a NEET since i was 12 because i refused to go to school after moving to some basketball american infested rat hole and being severely bullied. i snapped and quit going to school and even after moving upstate i only went to class for a season at most as a freshman and never went back for obvious reasons of not handling being around others.

My mom was patient with me and let me stay at home at first because i was getting some treatment for my anxiety PTSD and depression,not that zoloft and talking to some old succubus every week helped. i kept my mom off my back by saying i would get my GED and go to college but i never did anything obviously and she kept pressuring me to :look for work" by taking the internet away and long story short i started some job and did it for about 3 weeks and stopped going in until i got fired a month ago. The problem is my mom still wants me to work or study and i flat out refuse but have not told her yet. How can i tell her i don't want to work and to just let me live at home like i have been for years. i don't know if she would even let me try for SSI and what is the point when i probably wont get it but i can worry about all that later.

What i need to know is how the hell did you all become NEET with impunity? did you tell your parents you just wont work and they let you or something because i think my mom will let me stay NEET for a while longer and kick me out in a ear most or something despite loving me because she is a wagecuck and wants me to slave as well and be a normalfag.

Fake it untill you make; will it work wizards?

I fucked up, big time, I'm 27 and I have to do all the work I didn't do when I was 18/20, go to college (yes I want to, and it's my best option), college is free where I'm at, I didn't do it way back because I was a dumb, delusional idiot.

I have very low self esteem and I'm a horrible communicator.
I think if I try to fake this "K/driver" personality it will actually be good for me, and it may help me go through this period of trying to do all the work I should have done. I'm starting from zero, having blow every opportunity it came my way, being 27 and not even having a stable job or a skill and seeing every one around you surpass you is awful and humiliating.

I think that if I just maintain this stoic facade of "K Gosling" (the characters he plays), that may help me in the long run and thought this phase.
Normal people are not as stupid as most of us talk about, at least not about social communication/behavior, they know you don't belong, that you are trying to blend in, and they are fucking cruel, that's why I thought putting up this facade would be a good idea.

He's not a conflict oriented character, he doesn't seek to stand out, "fight" or prove anything and he doesn't try to blend in, he's just there doing his job, no matter what, if people laugh, or dislike him, so be it, like the LAPD station scene where the other officer calls him a skin job, or in Driver where the kids father comes back and wants to talk to him, or Driver where they are all eating a meal together, he doesn't escalate, he's calm, collected and it's ok with the shitty situation, just doing his own thing.

Do you think it could work? I don't think I can stand all the shit I will have to go through as myself, well I failed several times, so. I know that as myself I can't, therapy and medication didn't help in the past.

I still live with my mother and never have money for anything, always working odd jobs and no fucking skill. I'm the joke of the family and friends, well their friends, I don't have any. As well as was the joke of a regular job I had and a course I was attending years ago. It's fucking awful being in this situation. Some days I just want to burry my head in the sand and not see anyone.
But currently I can't just move cities or move to another state, I neither have the money or skills to just apply for jobs that would allow for that.
But as soon as I find a more stable job I will definitely move out.
My plan it to focus on getting into uni, finish the degree, studying as much as I can once I get into uni, save money, move out, work on the field, and acquire as much skills as I can.

Do you guys think this could work? I'm an introvert and every time I try to socialize or "blend in" or improve my communication skills I royally fuck up. It's kind of humiliating being at my age and have blow every opportunity I had, and now having to start from zero. But I'm willing to put in the work and give a last shot, but not as myself.

I'm 29, not yet a wiz but I'm less than a year away. I'm getting bored of isolation. I must have spent the last 15 years in total isolation so far and I'm just running out of shit to do alone. Maybe I would play guitar on the streets for some gryos or something. I have a dream of just roaming Europe and some parts of Africa, seeing the ancient cities and landmarks.

What makes a fictional character someone's favorite?

The internet parrots "relatability" endlessly, but that can't be all there is to it.

I believe admiration is what actually makes a character a favorite. Its powers, in the most abstract sense, what it can do, defines the virtues the viewer can admire.

Relatability has a multiplying effect: what the character does is more interesting when the viewer can relate, thus it's easier to admire it since you're paying more attention. But relatability is not as crucial to favoritism, because it's the admiration that breeds it.

In the end, what guides one's favoritism are the capabilities a character has: physical might and good looks are to anyone's liking, so fighting prowess and beauty are an advantage on people's internal rating and it's what make such characters figure high in popularity. But certain qualities, skills and attributes are bound to appeal to people differently based on their on preferences - hence favoritism for characters.

Thought about it after noticing how main characters are often written with relatability in mind (ending up bland) and are rarely anyone's single favorite.

Shoplifting

What are your opinions on this, wizzies? All my life I avoided completely any chance of doing so even as revenge and always thought that crime in any way must be avoided. But I started shoplifting like 7 years ago, at first as a curiosity about imported products that I wanted to try (candies and chocolates) but then I went far away stealing a lot of things, mostly hygiene products, tools, food and other utilities. Haven't paid for hand sanitizer, shampoo, pencils, etc since that time.

So far I've never been caught since I paid a lot of attention to security stuff and in fact I've learned a lot in this regard.

My philosophy is to steal only from big stores/multinationals or from state buildings (because the state is the biggest thief).

As a social reject I don't care anymore about the system so if my actions affect anything anymore. Also I hate my country so even the less I care. In a way I recognize this being some sort of cope or unload of rage

Does anyone else here drink a lot of soda? I usually have anywhere from 4-6 cans a day, diet mostly because I don't want to be a landwhale. It's probably one of the only things that still brings me joy and I love trying new ones out. I like the space coke that came out a few weeks ago a lot and have been walking down to the carry-out a couple times a week to get one, I'll be pretty sad if it doesn't become a permanent flavor. Dr Pepper had a Zero Sugar Cream Soda flavor recently that I liked as well, but I haven't seen it in a while.

Why is this place so much more chill than 4chan? Like this place has a much more relaxed tone to it and a less angry vibe to it. Why is that?
R: 31 / I: 2

The goal of world elite is destruction of the weak.

Wanted to post on 4chan but 2000 characters limit.
Hello.
It's not a secret for anyone that in the absence of the possibility of a full-scale war, when people have become absolutely unnecessary to the elite, any elite pursues only one goal - building an ideal future through the evolution of man into the "final form" and the separation of all "impure". The Jews were the first to single out this ideology in the Kabbalah (Tzimtzum and Qliphoth), but now representatives of absolutely all races are involved in this. Whether they are fully aware of what they are doing and what this final form will be, one can argue about this, but the methods are obvious: informational aggression, a huge number of tricks and substitutions of concepts. Here are some examples of what I have noticed.

0. Advertising. The scourge of everything. The greatest attention stealer in the history of all mankind, the embodiment of devouring chaos, penetrates into all cracks and communities. No one is immune from the fact that his thoughts at the current moment may be influenced to advertising.

1. War.
Proxy wars, never involving major cities, are waged solely for this purpose. In a war, only ordinary people and residents die who could not be saved, that is, the weak. Also, talking about it distracts the population from the problems associated with their lives, and makes them submissive.

2. Exchange.
Who trades on the stock exchange wins or loses only thanks to the intellect. The virtuality or reality of the traded goods does not matter.

3. Non-traditional values.
Operated transgenders, childfrees and other perverts often don't breed, making way for the elite. Conversations and provocations on this topic can cost someone a job (cancel culture).

4. Substitution of concepts. For example, the left is often called liberal, although liberalism is the ideology of killing the weak, contrary to equality, and conservatives and opponents of liberalism are right, that is, they support inequality. Even though it doesn't make sense, but according to the principle of the "big lie" people believe in it, waste their time and cut social ties.

5. Admiration. The man is looking at the net. Here is someone who did a nice trick. Sang a song. Cleverly made fun of a moment from everyday life or another person. Parasocial connections work the same way.
The information is useless, because does not concern a person’s life, and he will not be able to repeat it either, and even if it were useful, it would only increase the attraction to the site where he found it, exacerbating the problem. But admiration makes a person waste his time further. A separate topic here is the worship of science, which will never benefit an ordinary person if this is not his specialty.

6. "Discounts" and promotions. When now a person goes to buy something, to buy at full retail - to be a sucker. You need to know the time of active discounts, have coupons, cards and other nonsense. There are also many "brands" that increase the price of goods for no reason.

7. Spread of diseases. It's no secret that covid was grown in a laboratory. It wasn't nearly as deadly as they had hoped, but the social effect was still powerful. A bunch of lost jobs for people who did not know how to isolate themselves from the informational noise and broke into aggression.

8. Pointless hobbies. Tourism, pets, drugs and consumerism in general are not only a waste of time, but also money.

9. Emphasis on racism. Although the races are indeed different, they are not nearly as different as paid Western propagandists who pretend to be counterculture broadcast. As a result, all over the world people stray into opposite communities, any action of which is easy to play off and put out, and the elite live together and do not care about the race. In the same Google, Indians, and whites, and Jews, and Asians work.

10. Pseudo work. For the especially restless, the elite makes it possible to sit at the workplace for at least all of their waking time. But what is being done there? Nothing. Those closer to the elite are required to write numerous documents, articles and reports containing almost no useful information. For the caste below, such "works" are created as a living bulletin board, a living hose holder at a gas station, a courier for the same useless documents. The goal is to destroy those who either do not want or cannot do this.

11. Disabled people. Giving them pensions is a distraction
from the true goal of the elite (killing the weak). Given its often small amount, they are motivated to continue to exist and be a burden to their kind, reducing their chance of survival.

12. Suppression through doomerism/idealism. The old mantra "we're all going to die, it doesn't matter, don't care about your life" has not lost its strength even now, and is being promoted on the Internet through various inflated news. But despite this, often people go after that to look on the Internet at their ideal, which, due to the development of creative skills and tools, involves much more receptors in the brain than a moment from reality, and this no longer ends with simple admiration. This cognitive dissonance ends with an absolute rejection of reality, and a person forgets about his room and family, looking at the image of a beautiful palace and the people in it. Not many people are subject to this, but they often become active servants
and carriers of this disease through the Internet, increasing the general degree of pressure on people.

13. Music.

14. Worship of antiquities. Many people, disillusioned with the modern world and afraid to realize what is happening, look for answers in ancient treatises and incomplete, outdated religions. But no. People of antiquity, especially deep ones, were much weaker than us and will not be able to reveal anything sensible to us about the present.

15. Games. With multiplayer games, the situation is the same as with the stock exchange, only they lose more often there, because only those who have received recognition in the real world for their skill can be considered winners. And single-player, like any content, even if it has a history, it will only benefit the smart ones. So it's a threat.

16. Updates. Whether it's needlessly "repairing" a perfectly serviceable road near your home or updating your operating system, the point is to launder money, divert your attention and inconvenience you. A separate case of this is updating online communities when a new group is created, for example, a subreddit, into which your friends go, but you are not in the know and are sitting in the old one. As a result, the amount of useful information per unit of time spent becomes even less than it was, and you have nothing to share with others to maintain communication.

17. Dreams of space and the discovery of a new earth are similar in many ways. This refers us to the genetic memory, when, only after going through a week of an exhausting and terrible path, it was possible to open a new oasis and populate it with thousands of descendants, becoming more successful than any modern billionaire. Bringing these thoughts to life is a good distraction.

18. Soul-devouring "therapy". Something is wrong? Take a pill and assume the mental and physical shape of a seal or walrus. I should have posted this earlier, but I forgot.

That's all I remember. The rest of the problems are either not new enough, and are already intuitively clear as threats, or are less significant. But if you think that I exaggerated, missed something important, or fundamentally wrong, I will be glad to hear your opinion.

A species of schizophrenics

…and the japanese are out to cure them.
https://www.helprx.info/blog/schizophrenia/schizophrenia-research-cave-fish

>The blind cave fish Mexican tetra exhibits similar characteristics to humans with schizophrenia. The species as a whole is solitary due to a lack of natural predators. They have no need to join protective schools and are instead able to independently navigate underwater using variations in water pressure and vibrations.

>Despite their safety in the dark recesses, they remain anxious and restless. The fish repeat behaviors incessantly without sleeping.
>The fish show the closest behaviors of any animal researched so far to human schizophrenia. In fact, the fish seem to have about 90 percent of the genes with known risk factors for psychiatric disease.
>Yoshizawa has attempted to quell the natural erratic behaviors of the cave fish with fluoxetine, commonly branded as Prozac, and clozapine.

According to wikipedia, they are eyeless and have taste buds all over their head.

They are closely related to surface, social, normie fish. It's quite interesting. Perhaps it's really hard to lose sociability once it's been evolved, and the best natural selection for asociality can do is fucking your shit up.

Personality disorders and illness

As someone on the A cluster of personality disorders, life is very unmanageable and diminishing
i remember before my illness i was a different person, i used to not care much, i was pretty alpha.

Currently in life i've been more of a victim to my surroundings, admittedly because of me, but also because i'm an easy target.
I've increasingly become envious of cluster B more specifically dark triad or these days it's updated. I exclude BPD and histrionics those aren't beneficial (my sister has bpd)

I've done drugs to alter myself, i watch gore, i don't respond much to shocking imagery because of shizoid tendencies i have, but i do have feelings. I'm kind to animals etc.
My problems in general are of a social nature, i feel fine by myself, but anything with other people is no fun at all, i don't like people.
I would call myself a nihilist and a misanthrope but also a coward, i understand anxiety, i wish i would wake up as a genuine psychopath.

It sounds edgy and you can suggest i should top myself, but hear me out, in our society psychopathy is very beneficial, it's almost a cure all.

psychopaths have reduced connections between the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC). The part of the brain responsible for sentiments such as empathy and guilt, and the amygdala, which mediates fear and anxiety.
the neuroscientist James Fallon, he himself is a psychopath and he discovered this by reviewing scans of criminals brains. Abuse and bad upbringing is the difference between a pro-social and antisocial one. But also genetics. NOT solely upbringing.

I was always interested in psychology, if i was smarter i would've have studied it with criminology, it's just interesting. I'm not glorifying murderers, in a sense i think people should pay for their crimes.
All of this is meaningless anyway, but i just came to the conclusion in order to break the cycle of a abuse, the abused becomes the abuser, psychopathy CAN be the answer in certain situations.

Lobotomy, brain damage, drugs, callousness and exposure to violence, killing animals, it can all amount to advancing the spectrum of psychopathy. I guess i'm just a weak individual looking for a way out.

i'm moving into my aunts former apartment, though i'm grateful and the rent is cheap, not particularly happy. I have a bad reputation and relationship with the small town i live in (small close-minded suburbs).

Some people like staying in a small town where everyone knows each other, growing up with people you've seen all your life.

I really dislike it. I'm moving in next week, my parents won't like it but it's temporary, they just don't know it yet.

I'm planning on moving to another state and cut my connections to my former life to a minimum, just got to get my act together, stay a year here after that i'm outa this bitch. Currently my family is helping me move.

It's painful knowing they put so much effort into helping me settle in, they recognize it as something big because of my condition and living as a neet finally having a job and overcoming struggles.

The truth is i don't want to be around them. I would set fire to the town i grew up in. Guess i'll just play the long game, i'm an adult anyway, after a year getting accommodated i will move to another state.

Brown People

Serious question, why are brown people incapable of building and maintaining a safe prosperous first world country on equal footing with (previously) predominantly white countries like America or Britain? Is it genetics? Culture? White supremacy? I don't know I just find it fascinating that brown people do not have a non shithole country to call their own.

How NEETS contribute to society:
-consume little due to low spending power, hence they have smaller carbon footprints
-leaving opportunities for others by being out of the rat race
-not contributing in harmful, exploitative industries like big tech, big oil, big military

Gay/Bisexual Wizards

For the other fags here, what is your reasoning for not embracing the gay lifestyle and dating/fucking men? I believe I'm bisexual but I have even less desire to be with a man than I do for succubi. I do indulge in the porn, but other than that I can't get over how pointless gay sex/relationships seem, and most guys aren't even attractive to me (trap fag). What I find interesting though is that my decision is often misinterpreted as me being a self hating gay or having internalized homophobia, which isn't the case. It made me realize that one of the advantages of being a straight wizard is that people more or less can accept that a man can choose not to chase succubi, but refusing to fuck men as a homo is almost always seen as something more harmful.

10 Years General Thread 1: Day Late Edition

This is a thread to celebrate every 10 years of Wizardchan as a concept. Ten years and one day ago, Wizardchan was opened to the public, and the internet never fully recovered.

I'd like to ask what everyone has been up to in the long time of these past 3,653 days. Graduate school? Lose a job? Moved houses? Been in and out of prison? Have any family members left this forsaken earth? What was the high and low of these past 120 months?

Isolation Meals

Today I tested positive for covid, despite only going out the door to do groceries and to throw the trash out. I was having quite a fever and mentioned it. My elderly parents, fearing for their very lives, immediately decided to quarantine me. Perhaps a normal person would be angry with this imposed restriction. To me however, this is just a speck more than nothing. Almost nothing at all. I didn't argue because I never argue. I'll be locked inside my room for 7 days, now. My good mother will be placing my meals in front of the door. I was sitting here looking through the window just now. It would be convenient if it were facing east or west so I could have some sunlight, but instead it’s facing south and I have none. I have some paracetamol here with me but I'm saving it in case my body starts to hurt too bad. Even then perhaps I won't take it. We'll see.

Here's what I'm going to do. I'll be posting every isolation meal I have for the next seven days. Today was a good day to start since I was fasting and this is the only meal I had. I wasn't going to eat anything but I'm appreciating my mother's effort. Toast, salad with lots of red onion which I like, juice and boiled fish with mustard.

I see you tomorrow with my next meal.

NIGGERCIDE 2022

More food bought = more niggers killed

Now you have a unique opportunity to optimize as many niggers as possible without sacrificing your life or freedom. The world is now opening a window of opportunity of just a few months, when your small efforts can make a big difference in the world and make it a little cleaner and better. All you have to do is stock up on as much non-perishable food (canned food, cereals, frozen foods) as possible and encourage as many people as possible to do so. Unlike previous years, now all your actions will be enhanced by several coefficients:

1) High fuel and fertilizer prices increase the costs of farmers and agricultural holdings, which reduces the planning horizon and forces producers to refuse to increase production;
2) Unprecedented weather disasters in China, India, Brazil and other key food producers;
3) The effect of panic or "self-fulfilling forecast". The more food they buy -> stronger inflation will be. High inflation -> more countries will impose export restrictions. And this will again increase the effect of panic. This mean an ever-increasing circle or snowball effect.

You don't need massshooting or other stupid things to make effective NIGGERCIDE. All you need is to buy as much food as possible and encourage others to do the same. Moreover, your efforts will not be in vain and you will save on food in the future due to rising prices. What is the best way to convince others of this? Each audience needs a different approach. Racists should be told that their actions will kill as many niggers as possible. Believers need to bring the Apocalypse of John the Theologian and call on them to save their families and their friends. Frighten the cowardly with starvation. For the greedy, give data on rising prices for food futures and advise renting warehouses for further speculation. Some data for arguments:

https://www.barchart.com/futures/quotes/ZC*0/futures-prices - corn

https://www.barchart.com/futures/quotes/KO*1 - palm oil
https://www.fao.org/worldfoodsituation/foodpricesindex/en/ - FAO Food Price Index

Also, do not forget about the location of readers. Information should be conveyed to residents of the EU countries, USA, Britain and the dominions, Japan, South Korea, China, India, states of the Arabian Peninsula. That is, we need countries with a fairly rich population, whose inhabitants are able to buy food for several years in advance at the current moment.

At the end, I will give a few articles that will show you the uniqueness of the current situation:

Potential Imageboard Moderating Policies

What measures would a sustainably moderatable imageboard use? Hundreds of messages or more a day with no posting filters becomes tedious for a mid-sized team to proactively monitor. In that case, how can an imageboard sustainably filter out bad posters?

- Word filters? People always find a way around them.
- Algebra or advanced math problem captchas? Selects for impressive autismo, but filters out good verbal posters with limited math skills.
- Graduating ban levels, with warnings or 3 day bans for light offenses like spam or advertising, or 6 month bans for CP, or whatever lengths are appropriate, should be considered.

What other options would be workable?

Do normies talk about anything with each other that is not backstabbing

I have noticed that many times with my family members:
whenever my mom seats with my aunt or any of her female friends they start backstabbing other people and can spend hours and hours talking about nothing other than other people and sharing all their secrets, news, and even insulting them and would go to say things behind their backs that I would never imagine they could say 5/100 of it in heir faces, When family members meet and females sit together in a special room, they start doing this, and I just start to wonder about how empty their lives must be, if the only thing they talk about is other people and their private secrets. personally, when texting people online I usually talk to them about vidya or computers.

Taking the christpill as a cope.

I am a former atheist. I decided to convert to the protestant faith and abandon all nihilism and pessimism in favor of salvation in the hands of Christ. now I pray daily and read the bible my goal is to achieve salvation through Jesus christ It might have started as a response to a general sense of nihilism, but talking to a priest didn't help move me anywhere in that regard. It might have started as a cry in a moment of despair, but when I did that, there was no response. It might have started as an acceptance of philosophical arguments, but while I find some of them viable, I don't think they're compelling enough to move me from one category to another. It might have started as an outpouring of welcoming from religious people, but I'd always received that welcoming.

Maybe I decided that religion (in its broadest sense) is intrinsic to humanity, and in order to have a human existence that made any sense, I'd have to give this religion thing another shake. Maybe I decided that, even if we are cosmic orphans, it is the role of the orphan to long and cry out. Maybe somewhere in the depths of my humanity, somewhere immeasurable and small but more there than anything else, my cries received a response and I have never been as happy and content as I am right now in my life faith is comfy
Anybody here has any similar experience with faith and religion?
