What is a Friend? Someone who is there for you through thick and thin? Someone who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself? Someone who will hold you when the days seem to much to handle, and maybe the sun hasn't shinned warmly on your face? Someone who will make you laugh, when laughter hasn't shown itself for a while? Someone who will not judge you? What is a "Friend?" I came to this group for a number of reason, one being, it was a homeschool place where I could find a "friend," or two or maybe even three! Where I had a place to learn new and exciting things, but unfortunetly it did not work out that way for me. I feel I have been judged because of my religious or non-religious beliefs. Something that has never happened to me before, and I must say I am very hurt by the whole experience. I am who I am, I feel I am a kind, considerate, warm, and loving human being, that has a lot to offer to a "friend." So when someone tells me I will not go to heaven because I do not beleive what they do, that I wil go to HELL, I am quit offened. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, we live in a free America, but please do not push your beleifs on me. I did not ask.
My response was something like something like (I don't have the original, I forgot to copy and paste before sending and she has everything monitored):
I know I probably need to let it go at this point and just pray. I think in that response I came across a little harsh, which of course I didn't mean to. Please just pray for me.
Thanks and Blessings!
