> I tried talking with a friend (not a close one, as that feels safer to me) about all my feelings over ex-T calling and how I was so confused. Her answer, "You just need to find Jesus and let him heal you." Yeah, okay. Why didn't I think of that? I tried to explain to her that I'm "saved" according to her definition of the word, but the same things that work for her don't necessarily work for me.

> But she couldn't accept that. If my faith isn't enough to make me all better, then I'm just not faithful enough. Maybe I'm not. Maybe I'm just too needy - I want love, acceptance, and understanding from someone with skin on them. I want my T back. So sue me.

> I also wanted to ask her why she was just telling me how depressed she is if Jesus is all she needs. But I didn't. And that was quite a feat. I'm actually rather proud of myself. I was even gracious when she suggested some books that might lead me in a direction I've never considered before.
>
> Anyway, it's left me feeling shamed about my beliefs and even more alone. Didn't really think that was possible.
