"Be like the flower
who even gives its fragrance
to the hand that crushes it"
Seeing arguments online over religion reminds me of why I dont participate in all that bullshit. I am so glad I have pulled away from religion. Religion (in my opinion) causes more problems than it does good.
For those of you who dont know…I grew up very strict Mormon and after years of hating it and feeling sick about being a part of it I am free of all that hate, fear, manipulation, and self doubt.
Josh and I are working on removing our names from the church records so we are completely free from the imprisonment.
I believe in my intuition. Not god.
I believe in finding a balance in all things. Not limiting specific things.
I believe in using my best judgement and having self control. Not living in fear, being manipulated, and feeling guilty.
I believe in being compassionate, curious, grateful, kind, loving, forgiving, and free. I believe in living life to its fullest in the here and now!
I guess if you had to put a label on it I would be free. Free to be who I am, free to believe what I want, free to make my own decisions, free to live life the way I want to.
I dont need religion to feed my insecurities.
