I've always been Catholic, but it has kept me from going insane

I have to get working on that.

I've been spending too much time reading and doing things instead of taking care of important stuff like that.


I've always been Catholic, but in my life I've seen many people with the same sort of upbringing as me leave the Church, people convert to the faith, and then leave, and people just stop practicing without any clear reason.

I look on this forum, and I see current non-Catholics clearly professing the faith in the beginning of their activities here.

I see the things I wrote about the important of orthodoxy and being careful with how one uses feelings in making judgements because they are often misleading.

It is clear that there is a creeping normality here. Things that would not have been tolerated and somehow welcome, and things that should be clear, are muddled.

People who remained active here are few, and there is a selection bias which has resulted in a very strange forum dynamic by any standard.

The only things users of a forum can do is post, and that is what I have been doing, but not as much as I used to, but it is clear there are issues here that I have never seen before.

I don't know the way to deal with it and still be active on this forum. I suppose that explains why so many are not active.
