But is seemed like I'm always looking for something to be wrong with him or something tells me "he doesnt love me" blah blah blah. I am so tired of it. I wont stop. I need guidance. I pray to God but i wont go away. And it doesnt help that I over think everything. The thing is he's the one I've always been looking And on for..like really. And now that I've found him its like this force is working double time. What is this phenomenon?
There's absolutely no evidence that any evil forces exist that can magically occupy people's minds and bodies and makes them do bad things. The idea is nonsense. That's why praying won't make it go away because it's not there to begin with. To believe it's there deflects from the real problem which is flawed thinking.
