• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

  3. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  4. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  5. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  6. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.

    Yes, when I was growing up I had very little confidence because of others, but I kept working out, singing, helping people ... you know, I built myself up, really, people still make fun of me for wanting things, but here I sit anyways, I was very skinny on my skinniest, people used to ask if I had eating disorder, but I`ve also been overweight sometimes, but I always lost the extra weight, I think our confidence and how much we eat is linked together often, lately I`ve been drawing a little in addition to the singing and helping people, don`t know if I`m any good at it, but I attached a drawing of mine below, good to meet you all :)

    Have you been diagnosed as having an eating disorder?
    People do not just stop having one, they have to work hard at controlling any disorder, solving what ever problems caused it and adopting a healthy eating pattern.

    Well, it was connected to my low self-worth caused by others I think, so today it`s sort of gone for good, no I never told a doctor about it

    My unqualified, non medical opinion is you didn't have an eating disorder.

    That said, you have got rid of low self estime, well done that take serious work.
    Do take care of yourself as you, as all people are valuable.

    Have you ever thought why are people valued?
    Is it because they are work units, or consumer units producing and consuming for others profit?

    Or is there another reason? What is your opinion?

    Telling doctor about it I didn`t want because then you have to talk to someone else, so that I avoided completly, but okay, I had an suspecion about it that I had an eating disorder, yes it takes alot of work to feel normal, that`s true,

    well, it`s an complicated question I think, most people, normal people, they usually just talk all day long, so when you yourself perhaps have a passion that you spend time on instead, you perhaps don`t talk as much, so they de-value you a little and in addition because they feel youre less mature and developed, like you just said, western people value work alot since society feels safe and comfortable, I was more passionate myself, but usually it`s okay, when they see me or I smile, they feel happy so
