Some issues
« on: November 21, 2012, 12:57:40 PM »
It hasn't been going too well with me lately.

1) I have huge emotional swings the last few weeks/months. At one moment I can be as cheerful as anyone can be and the next moment I'm close to feeling depressed. It's really weird and I don't like it.

1) Then there are the fights with my mother, which is going on for more than 10 years but is getting more intensive (like in really big, noisy and annoying) the last few months.

3) And then there's that thingie with that girl. It's definitely going the good way but I'm shy and lack some courage.

Please pray for me.

May the Lord have mercy upon you, strengthen you and guide you.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord have mercy on you.

As for number 3 you can try one of these :) :

May the Lord have mercy upon you, strengthen you and guide you.
Many energies, three persons, two natures, one God, one Church, one Baptism.

Lord have mercy.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
