Hi girls, I need help. I was depressed and started cutting, I’ve stopped the cutting and the depression has gotten better. However, I’ve slipped spiritually because I feel like I was trying to use God to get my ex back. I’ve lost faith, spiritual confidence, and personally I hate myself and can’t forgive myself for cutting and just minor mistakes I’ve made. I also doubt God loves me, because I haven’t heard from Him, and I don’t know how to feel His presence in my life again. I have no confidence and my self-talk is very negative. I not only need someone who can understand what I’m going through, but also someone who can give me advice for things like confidence. Most of all though, I want to hear from God again, but I don’t know how. Help me.

I understand some of what you’re going through. For about a year now, I’ve been questioning a lot of things about Christianity, and now my relationship with God is pretty much dead. I want to start a relationship with him again, but I don’t know how to feel his presence again either. And I also worry that he doesn’t love me anymore.
One thing that I think God’s been trying to put into my head is that we won’t feel his presence again if we’re not trying to feel it. Meaning that you should spend time reading the Bible, doing devotions, and praying even when you don’t feel like doing those things will help. You may already be doing that, but I’m struggling with it and thought you might be too.

Other than that, is there anyone in your daily life you would feel comfortable talking to about this? Like a pastor, mentor, close friend, etc? They might have better advice since they know you better.
And I know it’s gotten better, but you might also consider counseling for your depression. Getting treatment for the depression would help improve your overall wellbeing and could improve your confidence.
