> I have lacked religion all my life wasn't exposed to it so fear everything. Not good Phillipa
I was raised with religion, but I never found it to be a comfort. I never felt secure that God would let me into heaven. So it was another source of anxiety.
Interesting that someone brought up religion in an exercise thread. Exercise is a religion to some people. It gives them a holier-than-thou attitude toward people that don't.
I will exercise if I feel like it. I don't appreciate being lectured to about it. The evidence for benefits from exercise is pretty flimsy from what I've seen. It's certainly not strong enough to make somebody feel like they are to blame for their depression if they don't exercise.
