Most of the posts on this thread have been thoughtful and kind. And I appreciate how transparent some have been with their own struggles. But I agree that a few of the posts have been very judgemental and rude. As someone who has struggled with fear and anxiety and depression and then to have other believers insinuate that it is because of a lack of faith or something I have chosen, is wrong. You have not walked in my shoes and I hope you never have to. But please don't ever say things about someone else's faith or mental health. I don't care if you are a counselor or whatever, you don't know me. God is the only thing that has kept me going through my struggles and I have not chosen to be like this or have a weak faith.Honestly, some of the comments on this thread have been judgemental and hurtful to those with mental illness.
I was going to stay off of this thread but a few of the responses made me come back to post.
