I sometimes come back to you guys Ariel 17/11/25(Sat)00:10 No. 5641 ID: ab4eba

I sometimes come back here to remember the times when things weren't going so well to show you guys that things really can change.
I now found work in Milan, Italy. I don't earn that much, about €1300 a month.
I finally found a girlfriend. We met on the 1st of April of this year and we liked eachother immediately. We've been together ever since. It wasn't easy at all because we had tough moments for a lot of reasons. We are both born in 1988.
At first I thought our relationship wasn't that serious so I wasn't so much emotionally involved even though she is really beautiful but then she showed me that she did like me a lot. I started acting more serious about the relationship and we ended up passing more and more time together.
The most serious thing we had to face was a really serious health issue on her side: she was bit probably by a tick and she contracted some form of Lyme disease. I don't want to explain all the things we went through those 3 months but in summary a strange spot showed up on her left elbow. At first we didn't think much about it but after one month and a half strange symptoms started appearing. At first she had fever for one day and after that she started feeling dizzy, nausea, joint pain, very tired, confused, amnesia. She searched these symptoms online and found out about the Lyme disease. We were very lucky that she had a male nurse friend that passed her antibiotics for free and she started taking antibiotics without any diagnosis from a medic. In fact we had absolutely no help from any doctor that we visited, even expert infectivologists. After exactly 3 weeks of taking antibiotics twice a day those strange symptoms were almost all gone and slowly she recovered. We were very lucky because I've heard of a lot of people, even famous people, that fought with the Lyme disease for years just because they didn't treat it immediately.
I am so happy we got over those days because I couldn't stand to see her, the girl I love, in those conditions. Now she is better but still has problems with her parents. She still lives with her parents and brother. They stress the life out of her and it makes me mad. I've met them in one really strange situation. I work during the week. In those days when she wasn't feeling so well and her parents were on vacation in the mountains I wanted to stay with her at their place so she could feel better and not make disasters because of her Lyme disease caused amnesia. So in the evening, after a day at work, I would take the train and go to her parents' house and sleep with her in her room, without her parents suspecting anything. Then, in the morning, I would take the train and go to work. All went well the first couple of days then on the last night I would stay there her brother spied on us and told her parents about us. They arrived in the middle of the night while we were sleeping naked and hugging eachother. They turned on the lights and we started arguing. They even called the police. I took my stuff and went out in the street while waiting for the police to arrive. They arrived, I showed them my documents and no charges were filed because no crime was committed. I waited for my girlfriend to gather her stuff and we both went in the middle of the night out of her parents' house. It was a really ugly and sad situation. I never thought her family would be so ignorant and insufferable. The police gave us a lift to the local train station but there were no trains so we took a hotel room. I slept like 2 hours but she slept even less because of how preoccupied she felt about the whole situation. In the morning we took the train to Milan, I went to work while she went to my place.
This happened a few months ago. Now she works part-time in a supermarket. We are looking for a place to rent just for the two of us. We want to move together on February.

I don't know if you remember me but I posted a few months ago about how bad I was feeling because my grandmother passed away. I can't say I'm the happiest man on earth now but I must say I feel much better than before meeting my girlfriend. I stopped drinking heavily just to cope with the sorrow. Things are not going bad at work and in general things are not going terribly wrong.

I just wanted to tell you that things can really change for the best but sometimes, maybe, they need a little push. You need to have faith in God, Jesus Christ our Lord, and courage. You need to fight for yourself and for what is right. Yes, there are dark times when the best thing to do is stay low but it can't last forever. After rain there comes sun and you always need to be prepared for both. Maybe it's the way I am made but if I have to go down I prefer to go down fighting. I don't to sit still like a sheep while the wolf tries to eat me. I am wolf in a certain way. If I feel like I have self-destructive tendencies in me then I try to direct those tendencies towards the thing that is trying to pull me down and to destroy me. I won't go down without a fight, as brutal as it might be.
Good luck to you guys!

P.S. I'm sorry I'm not that good of a writer. I try my best.

I forgot to say that I met her through my roommate. My friends that were near me in difficult times helped me a lot, not financially or materially but simply by being there, near me, when I was feeling down.
Yes, it's nice to be lonely and feel strong but we are not made to be lonely, at least it's true for most of us.
We should always base our actions on our own resources but there are some times when we need someone to help us stand on our feet. We should never be ashamed of asking for help.

I am more and more convinced that there are really deep truths written in the Bible.

You can't possibly think that I'm going to read a single sentence in a WoT about a fucking love interest. This ought to get deleted.

Do you mean the Old Testament as well? No amount of charity will make up for the mass circumcision that the Jews and Protestants forced upon hundreds of millions of children, especially every one that is still carried out under the guise of "medical necessity."

And Christianity rides on this bullshit idea that there's no such thing as a righteous Agnostic, or that the Bible contains some vague hidden truth that can't be found through contemplation and reading non-fiction. It's just one facet of America's insanity.

Love interest?
Love is actually what we are really looking for into others, even when you are psychopath. We want attention, we want to be loved, we want to be desired, we want ourselves inside the mind and body of others in some way or another. This is the main reason why we and our genes are alive today, because some time in the past one man went inside a woman and we were born.
So yeah, love is important. Not just romantic love, but love in general: the authentic encounter between two sentient beings in this vast and empty universe.

The perversity of devils to cherry pick Bible verses for their own needs. Yes, we all know that. That's not how it works. We all know there are some really violent things written in the Old Testament but Christians are not Jews because we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ said that the old law was not to be completely abolished but what He came for was to bring the message from His father.
I'm not here to judge others, besides "let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." We should only offer the teachings of the Bible and not oblige others onto them. The thing is different with children because they need to be taught so they can be prepared to face this world.
Only Islam obliges you to their teachings. Either you pay a fine or become muslim. If you don't do either of these things then they will kill you. And if you are a muslim and leave Islam then they will kill you. This is the so called religion of peace.

If you are agnostic or atheist then you are welcome to believe whatever you need or want to believe. But remember that when you are put face to face with your heart and soul right before your death, there will be no theory of special relativity there to save you.

Love is what makes us human after all and Jesus Christ was pure love.
"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
...
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

We get confused by all the proxies of the teachings of Jesus Christ but we should not be confused by devils and evil. We should strive to deeply understand the message God sent us for it is only for our saving, nothing else. For example I believe that the Catholic church is the Antichrist. They will all be judged when their time will come but I'm not here to judge anyone. I'm here to share my message which is what I understood to this day from my experience.
This life passes by faster than we can imagine. I will always remember my grandfather's words before he got sicker and sicker because of cancer and struggled to live till his last breath, till breathing was the only thing he could do: this life is but a moment.

It's Christians who cherry pick. You just said so.

Either way, you're right. I was being a total dick to OP and it was not called for. Things are pretty cold and dark on my end, but there's always hope that they will get warmer and lighter.

A lot of the devils who seriously harmed me and those around me claimed to be Christians, and whether or not they were Christians is just up to interpretation. Who wouldn't find that disturbing and threatening?

You guys turn to God in dark times, and that is respectable.

It's just that Protestantism is a spin-off of Catholicism, and you said you believe that Catholicism is the Antichirst? Do you believe that the Catholic Church was at one point good, and then became corrupted? They edited the Bible, no? They chose which books to put in it, right?

Yes, I have seen a lot of ungodly things come from supposedly godly people.

If the Catholic Church can be the Antichrist, maybe its not a stretch to call Christianity an unhelpful schism between the relatively reasonable and the relatively unreasonable. If God told you to jump off a bridge, would you do it?

Either way, it's clear you and I think about this more than the average person. Life seems to go on regardless of what people believe in. Show me one instance where it didn't.
