How to overcome social anxiety and a need for acceptance?

Be Not Afraid of the Opinions of Others

Are you struggling with social anxiety or acceptance? Do you feel like you’re being marginalized or ignored for some reason? You are not alone! I had to deal with the fear of not being accepted, for years. Though I won’t claim to have arrived, progress has been made in my overcoming this fear. I’d like to share some ideas that may be of help to you.

I know and can guess some of the questions that you may be asking. Who the heck am I to talk about being marginalized or social acceptance? I will invite you to watch the video that I’m uploading with this blog post. Take a look at my thumbnail. As you may guess, I do know a few things and I invite you to watch the video.

Thoughts On Being A Christian Content Creator

Originally used on my YT channel

Believe it or not, I did not blunder with the title or the above image. If you do not know, I am not just the owner of this blog site. I’ve also an audio podcast and a YouTube channel by the same name. After my mother passed away in April 2021, I went through a period of grieving and reassessment of what God has called me into doing. The story of my mother’s passing is for another blog post.

You read that last sentence, correctly. For my Father did not just called me into the business of being just a YouTuber, just a podcaster or just a blogger. What does this mean? For one, I needed to learn the art of becoming a Christian YouTuber and work towards a system that would eventually let me post contents to my blog site.

In my October podcast & YouTube video, I shared my thoughts and tips for Christians interested in diving into becoming a YouTuber. Here’s a link to the audio podcast. The rest of this post is dedicated to sharing what I’m hoping to see done on this blog site. Don’t worry, I haven’t abandoned writing blogs!

“Thou Shall Not Be A Jerk: A Christian Guide to Engaging In Politics

Matthew 6:33 “Seek First The Kingdom of God

Yesterday, I decided to take the plunge and dive into what should be a rewarding experience for you, the readers, and me. As a kid, I love reading books and you could tell by looking at my nose. It was literally covered in ink. Though I did have some dry spells, the love for reading has never left. They say that one’s passion grows best when shared.

It is probably why I maintained a love for God’s Word because I talked with my Father in Heaven about what I read. Today, I can honestly say there was a joy in talking about what I read. Sadly, I never thought to ask God about the other books that I read. I had a similar experience when I joined a book discussion on Fahrenheit 451 in college.

Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: Cho, Eugene: 9780781411158: Christianity: Amazon  Canada

If you are reading a blog post on this site, it is a safe bet that you’re interested in Christianity. As you may have guessed, my goal for this blog post is to discuss issues found in Eugene Cho’s book “Thou Shall Not To Be A Jerk: A Christian’s Guide To Engaging Politics”.

This is not meant to be a book review; rather it is a discussion on what Eugene Cho is covering in this book. As it happens, I did major in Political Science and been involved in social activism.

During the 90s, I would have loved the pearls that I’m discovering inside and I’m planning to share some of them. Don’t worry, I am not planning to go hardcore. Not everyone is called to get into politics, yet we do need to know how to not come across as a jerk.

Sharing Old & New Treasures (Matt 13:52)

Has this ever happened to you? Did you ever think that the Holy Spirit would prompt you to use a story that’s nearly 10 years old? Just because something is old, it does not diminish its value.

I’d like to share what happened and a fresh reminder to me, as a writer. Our stories are of value; no matter when it happened!

Make The Day of Rest, A Lifestyle!

How are you feeling these days? Are you feeling stressed out and exhausted? When it comes to the topic of politics in the wonderful lands of Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, the feelings of exhaustion, depression, and stress are intensified.

Have you ever considered taking a real day off? How about turning off social media, for a day?

Do you know there is more to the Sabbath than Sunday morning church service? Yes, I know that the Sabbath actually starts at sundown on Friday and ends by sundown on Saturday. Yet the question still stands. Have you ever considered making the Day of Rest, a lifestyle; not a mere religious duty? How does one do this?
