I used to be a devout Christian. One of those: "Do you know our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ?" types. I would talk about God all of the time, and I'm honestly suprised I didn't drive my "friends" away.
Honestly, the turning point for me was the beginning of high school. I was still turning to God/religion for my problems. Over time, I realized my prayers were never answered. The situation I was in worsened. I once again turned turned to Christianity; and I once again was disappointed.
I got myself out of the situation; found I was agnostic. I do believe something is out there, but I feel it delves farther than what our minds comprehend.
As far as devotion, everything shows me that this is the correct way. I can go into a but more detail if you want to know, but I do hope this helps! ❤
I can't tell if I'm agnostic or atheist. I used to be a semi-immersed Christian as a kid, but my family says I stopped caring for religion after my grandfather died. I don't know if my interest was my own, or if it came from my grandparents constantly taking me to church until that year.
I guess the lack of information is what drives me up the wall. I have anxiety about things I don't understand; things without solid proof. I just find everything so difficult to believe, sometimes. Plus, I always get so overwhelmed by customs and practices of the religions I am interested in trying out—
I'm definitely glad to see I'm not alone, though. Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with me.
I completely understand what you feel, because I go through the same thing. I would look into different religions and practice them (if they are open). Find someone who would be willing to talk to you, about whatever branch you would like to experience first.
I grew up believing christian ideals. my grandma is a major christian, and would use that i would be “punished” by god whenever I did something bad. however, when I got older I became a mix of an agonist and a atheist. I got tired of having to conform to my grandmothers religion. so I became one of those edgy kids who said they’re an atheist. the majority of freshman year I began to wonder things. I started to contemplate converting to buddhism or becoming wiccan. I always felt better when learning about both religions. so in may, I became a buddhist. I still am but I don’t meditate as much, but still follow the 8 trifold path. in June I also became a wiccan. I’ve been following both now and it’s helped me feel like somethings actually making life full.
