Add me to the overthibk group as well

2019-01-29 17:31:50 UTC  

I spend more time in my head than I do living in the moment.

2019-01-29 17:31:58 UTC  

Well actually sins of my mother

2019-01-29 17:32:06 UTC  

oh, I hate the sins of my father and I hate more that I started down that path myself without realizing it.

this is going to sound really dumb, but for me, attending Church really helped. I'm REALLY not saying it's for everyone, but making myself beholden to a group greater than myself, even voluntarily, has helped me deal on a day to day

2019-01-29 17:34:56 UTC  

guess the bias. Which site is conservative and which is a liberal based on their headline of the same story?

Just... lol...

You're getting structure in your life, a higher purpose if you will.

2019-01-29 17:35:18 UTC  

Nothing wrong with that

2019-01-29 17:35:19 UTC  

yes, that's it exactly

2019-01-29 17:35:32 UTC  

it doesn't have to be Church

2019-01-29 17:35:46 UTC  

just structure, responsibility, support, etc

2019-01-29 17:36:00 UTC  

I need responsibility in my life

2019-01-29 17:36:49 UTC  

I think everyone does

2019-01-29 17:37:17 UTC  

But only as much as they can handle; maybe a tad more for growth. Otherwise you risk breaking them

2019-01-29 17:37:52 UTC  

I went to a private Catholic Church from.1st grade & all through high school. There's nothing wrong with religion IMO since I truly think that most of them are giving people a purpose in life per se. I study Stoicism as a "middle ground" for religion since I too feel like I need a purpose.

2019-01-29 17:38:09 UTC  

I don't think I articulated my thoughts that well there lol

2019-01-29 17:40:08 UTC  

haha no worries

2019-01-29 17:40:16 UTC  

Religion in and of itself isn't bad. Religious extremism is the bad one.

That was the ideology that a lot of people hated back in the day

2019-01-29 17:43:08 UTC  

>believing things objectively false isnt bad
Big think. But im too nauseous to get into that debate

2019-01-29 17:45:51 UTC  

Depends on how you view religions.

2019-01-29 17:46:33 UTC  


2019-01-29 17:46:48 UTC  

Nah it isn't my cup of tea but I respect it

2019-01-29 17:47:25 UTC  

Reminds me of Hogfather: You have to start out learning to believe the little you can believe the big ones

2019-01-29 17:47:40 UTC  

Surprisingly enough Nietzsche actually taught me how to respect Religion

2019-01-29 17:48:03 UTC  

I can see that

2019-01-29 17:48:16 UTC  

In his book beyond good and evil

2019-01-29 17:48:21 UTC  

Im trying to remember the quote

2019-01-29 17:48:34 UTC  

I have the book on my desk, I should pull it up.

2019-01-29 17:49:08 UTC  

"The worth of an opinion is not how true it is, but the value it holds" or something like that

2019-01-29 17:49:16 UTC  

Religion from a philosophical, societal and traditional standpoint can actually be rather unifying and centering for a lot of people. The problem is when people take it to either a dogmatic end or worse commit atrocities in the name of said Religion

2019-01-29 17:49:38 UTC  

but that's any philosophy

2019-01-29 17:49:47 UTC  

see social justice

2019-01-29 17:49:52 UTC  

The problem is the majority of religious people aren't philosophers and do indeed take it to a dogmatic respect

2019-01-29 17:49:59 UTC  

this is very true

2019-01-29 17:50:11 UTC  

but as far as religious philosophers go, I see them intellectually as equals

2019-01-29 17:50:23 UTC  

to any atheistic philosopher
