It is not that I hate Christ or the religion in and of itself, it is that its believers are gifted the reason to superiority believing they, in their faith, cast others into a hell they created.

Seeing people pray to Christ and then understanding how the Resurrection is to work defines them as evil.

The Muslim religion is worse. Religions that cast others aside or rise on their prosecution are sick against the human spirit.

Hello Chloe ( not your real name)
I just wanted to say thanks for your article Jesus does not have a happy plan for your life as I too fell into that way of thinking along the way! I can tend to be cynical so as you can imagine I haven’t always fell into the category of thinking it’s all a bed of roses being a Christian!
I believe this message is important to Christians who haven’t gotten to grips with the knowledge that Jesus did say about counting the cost and that like his disciples you might even die for His csake! Not quite a bed of roses story!
Oh and I swear like a trooper!! I’m not a woman either!!

Accidentally found you and I fucking love love love you. I have been laughing my ass off reading your posts. I’m a mother of 4, homeschooling mom, Christian (not a good one either) who curses too much and does not fit the mold. I really felt alone in this respect until I read your blog. You made me realize I am not the only one of my kind. I am not an alien just because I dont look or act like everyone around me. Then when I read that you are in recovery I was blown away. “Me too!” Holy shit girl we have a lot in common.

Hi, Chloe,

I just wanted to stop by and say thank you for sharing your journey with those of us who admit that we’re still trying to figure it out. I recently stepped off the cliff into the world of blogging and I’m clear that I can learn a lot from you.

Many blessings to you and your family,

Hi and thank you for sharing such a beautiful video. I have felt the same as you have and unfortunately still do. I do for others, as I am helping a friend go through a divorce of 20 years and lost her home and 3 dogs that were her children. She lived next door and her soon to be ex still does with his new partner that he met and after spending one night with this women left my friend and gave her 30 days to get out of the house she paid a mortgage on but the kicker is the husband kept it in his mother’s name. I have gone the extra mile. Picked her up at the hospital after she showed up at my house at 3 am with her wrists dripping blood. Many sleepless nights. I am happy to say that she is in her own apartment and is healing and is dating. Now why am I still so sad? Not jealousy. Not envy. I have 3 beautiful daughters and we are all close. Something is missing. I have to now rescue myself but don’t know how. Maybe it has been here all along and I did not see it. Probably as you did. I think I am a lot closer after seeing your video. Thank you for bringing me closer to that inner peace that we women seem to desire as we age and mature. I must be a late bloomer as I am 50. Better late than never. You gave me the biggest piece to my puzzle that is almost complete and I thank you for that. Lynda

God does has a plan for our lives, and much of it is wonderful, but much of it is also very painful. John 16:33.
Jesus never promised all of us nothing but bliss & riches……???? He had no wife, he had no kids, he had no home, and not much of anything in this world? His early disciples would all be killed…….& yet, these air-brained idiot preachers teach folks the “name it & claim it”…….”Blab it & Grab it” gospel ??? The part of this teaching that works the best, is the part about getting most of your “faith dollars” into his pocket….!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

I’ve read a lot of blog posts today and your video was the first one that had tears running down my face. I’m a homeschooling mom to one incredible college graduate, my mom has beat cancer three times, and I married my high school sweetheart 28 years ago. If you ever want to partner up, let me know. I’m a the author of the Learn Math Fast System and I have a lot to talk about. I have articles, freebies, and promo codes.

Thank you for your video! You are a beautiful woman and have a beautiful family. I have been married 3 times the first time I was married to my high school sweetheart and lost her because I was young and immature and learned from it and my second wife was very cold and controlling and I lost her to cancer. My third wife and I have been together 23 years and I love her very much! Lately she has told me she loves me but does not know if she is in love with me and I am very hurt. I was going through a hard time in the last 6 months because I hurt my back real bad and also found out my dad is dying from heart issues. I am very close to him and I shut her out because of all this. I have tried to make amends because of this and she is telling me its a little to late but I am trying to fix things but I am also giving her space at the same time. Again thank you so much for your video and I am happy for you and your husband!

Hi, my husband and I have been together almost ten years and married 5. We have two beautiful children. Weve been having problem for a little over two years now. He is a good man and a great father. But is lacking as a husband. I feel all alone as if I dont matter. He wont go to counsling and when I try to talk to him it ways ends in a fight and leaves me crying. He dont see where our marriage is falling apart. Ive talked about leaving but that dont seem to affect him. Please give me advice. I dont know what els to do.

Call a counselor and go without him. You do not need him to change to be happy. He might need to change for you to stay married, but first work on you.

You and your family are blessed. Your short video shows the power of your inner strength and self esteem that comes through the value of love that keeps families together and healthy. Wealth and material things are worthless when compared. Fixing what is wrong with families in the world would fix much of what is wrong in the world today. You are sincere, confident and beautiful. I am sure you have helped many women and deserve your verdant oasis to be well taken care of and appreciated!

Nice video, really.

Too bad I really hate Carla Bruni, that faked wealthy bourgeoise, who pretended to belong to the Left (i.e working class defender and all that jazz) while she married and supported all along the most reactionnary president we ever had (N. Sarkozy), one who was the worse xenophobic guy who has ever been in charge of France and just made the richs richer and the poors poorer!

In short, I’ve buttons sprouting just hearing her! 🙂

Love the video! What’s the name of that song and artist? Loved the post about Mariah Carey. I carried twins to 38 weeks (plus a nine pound baby three years before) and my stomach is nothing like it used to be and looks nothing like hers. I had a Dr. tell me that the only way to fix it was to get a tummy tuck. Stories like that magazine cover make people like me more upset about their body. Don’t get me wrong……….having healthy, big babies was worth all the extra skin and stretch marks!:) I look forward to exploring more of your blog.

Carrie December 9, 2012 at 8:56 am

Chloe,

I turn 50 in 10 days. For whatever reason, that number has loomed over me for so many years as the year that my life would begin to descend. I started my family later than many with my children ranging from 6th- to a senior in high school and a husband in an executive role in a company who travels the world on a monthly sometimes weekly basis. We lived away from family so I gave up my career aspirations when he started the international travel 18 years ago. Since that time, I have had that living with regret, measuring my success (or lack of) by my absence in the workforce. In the last few years I have finally been able to go on a few trips with my husband to Europe that unleashed a desire to do more see more be more. It has been a roller coaster but feel I am at least coming out of the tunnel and seeing more than that light, but what may be beyond it.

I just happened across this blog by chance having seen a Murad commercial and then searching for reviews and authenticity. I looked at your review then your about me tab. I saw your amazing 2 minute video, saw your gift of storytelling And thought “she could call this fall in love with Chloe in 2 minutes video”! And I mean that in a sincere friendly girl power way! Just thought you might want to know how cool it is that a random search could end up inspiring someone to “be more than what you’ve become”. Cudos, Namaste, and happy journey to you.
