← Missing God

Tyler Durden's Avatar Jump to comment 18 by Tyler Durden

I have, as a result been trying to force myself to believe in God again. This is not the former God of the Bible, that I used to believe in, but one, which is not based on any religion, but of my own creation.

An imaginary god of your own creation is still imaginary, no matter how hard you try to believe.

Am I doing the right thing, or should I try to accept reality, no matter that it provides me with no hope?

It is not the responsibility of reality to offer hope, just reality. Harsh, but true. Hope is a human emotion based on a myriad of experiences, memories, and expectations. If you're lacking hope in your life, do something real about it, as opposed to living in fantasy.
