Feeling a bit disconnected from my emotions after meditating and listening to dhamma talks

Confident
Does anyone has somekind of existential anxiety on Sundays? I am bit unsure how should I spend my life and which way I want to take it forward. A long unrelated chat with my friend helped me a it grounded me in this moment. I am not sure if this anxiety is related to my trauma. I have been done meditation and listening dhamma talks a lot lately and I am starting to wonder whether I am overspiritualizing my anxiety a bit. As buddhism generally recommends letting go of thoughts and emotions, it's really useful in some amount but I am starting to feel abit disconnected from my emotions and life itself. I am mostly ok, just a bit confused with my emotions
 
i feel a sense of disconnect when i achieve detachment. detaching from the problems which over-stimulate my emotions is a primary goal of meditation in my own case of control freakitis. the disconnect from my psychotic emotions allows me freer access to the more pure emotions which have been stunted by my mental illness.

there is no calendar association which i have noticed in my own case. the sunday connection has me wondering if you are craving membership in a sunday morning church community. in my own spiritual diet, too much diversity gives me indigestion. just wondering. . .

I haven't figured out exactly why - but "yes" Sunday nights are the absolute worst night for sleeping for me. Makes it hard to start work on Mondays.
 
The most stressful and saddening things in my life come from Christians and Christianity. I'm a strong believer and can tell you the most diabolical doctrine in Christianity is the evil TRINITY doctrine. Trinitarians even admit the doctrine cannot be explained or understood, yet they tell you that if you don't believe it you're not a Christian and going to hell. Thousands have been tortured and murdered over it. By it - one Christian condemns the other. I've been disfellowshipped from Christianity because I reject Trinity. I'll never be involved with JW'S, so I don't have any other options than throw the 'religion' of Christianity in the dump. I'll work out my own salvation.

Christians are Christianity's worst enemy.
 
@jimM I am sorry that you have been disfellowshipped from your congregation because of your unitarian views. It's true that particularly more conservative Christians can be very choosy with whom they call 'true christian'. I have been called a heretic & 'crypto-atheist' because I don't believe in eternal hell (I am a Christian universalist). I hope you are able to find more likeminded congregation (there are unitarian churches both online and offline (physical locations). Unitarian universalism might be one option if you don't mind that some of your fellow congregants are agnostics/atheists
 
The tip about about existential thread and Sunday mornings definitely helped me during the summer as I tend to feel better if I attend a service then. I have attended different parishes and services of two similar but different denominations. I feel I have found some really great communities but I am still trying to find myself if that makes sense?

I have been part of some great online spiritual communities as well but I feel I like to be more involved in my local community. My hectic work schedule limits my availability during workdays but I try to attend services at least regularly. Maybe I could volunteer in some position at some point too?
