I want to personally meet and befriend someone within my age group who is an inquirer (or catechumen) into Orthodox Christianity.
I want to be surrounded by good, faithful people who are pious and caring and wanting to communicate with me. I’m thankful that I have interact with people like that here, but it’s not sufficient for me. I need real, physical, face-to-face contact with those kind of people (other than clergy) to bolster up my faith and to end this lukewarmness, loneliness and apathy that’s killing me.
Right now, I don’t know if such people around me even exist. Some just don’t even care. It’s not like that I care too much because I’m struggling too. I’ve asked for many things in life out of want, but I don’t really know what I really need because the things of this world are only temporary.
God help me.
