    After 26 years of processing and reinventing history to fit the old book and being treated as a total doormat for living the life of a Matthew Chapter 5 "Christian"... and not understanding why I was treated with such disrespect... especially by the church folks.. and still "staying" with the church for many years...I was able to rewrite my whole mental operating system after forming these three words in my mind "god is imaginary".... and.... all of a sudden.. the way folks behave made total sense to me for the first time in my life. Just like the earth travels around the sun.. and not the otherway around. An adult life of anxiety just simply disappeared... I still have my last bottle of prescription medication from three years ago. Zero anxiety... and so much happiness. I now have 35 or so years left to REALLY LIVE!!!

  1. Amway ambushes! Man, I forgot about the four times I was lied to in my Fundy 20's and ended up at one of these.
  2. Maybe it is the competition, such as r/exchristian
  3. Your entire list is sooo relatable to me. But, this one was the hook that kept me around for soooo long. Twice I got on my knees, in tears, "knowing" only sincere specific prayer was answered. Both times these prayers were "answered" in very direct, and prompt ways, via sources and people far removed from the church. The unlikelihood of it all dominated my mental operating system for almost 20 years. It was my personal "proof" of god. It kept me tethered to the cult in the face of soooo much conflucting data/evidence. Such a strong hook too. Damn hard to move on when one's young adult social set is in place. I still have a few pieces of my old social set in my life. But, I was lucky that we got hooked up with a non believing couple in our early 30s over youth baseball. They were are contrary example to the cult. They blew us away. They exhibited all ofvthe "good stuff", without any of the disengenious judgment and manipulation. Now they, and two other couples with a mutual interest in camping, make up our core relationships. And, it all is sooooo much better. Would be perfect if I could delete the religion triggers stuck in my mind.
  4. After reading, I am not seeing how the responses you have received are flawed.
  5. Delete your profile, an anonymous profile? Who does that benefit?
  6. So encouraging. I wish him well.
  7. Yes. And the quicker you get completely this point, the more content happy years you will have. Don't recommend following my example by waiting until you are 50.
  8. I am willing to be your wingman, if so desired.
  9. Yes, faith is never based upon a blind nothingness. It is based on indoctrination, programming, and wishful thinking. Yes, it has an object. The folks the brainwashing, or our own cognitive dissonance and/or existential anxiety. It takes experiencing both sides of this coin to completely comprehend.
  10. No more tolerating these creeps. You are paying the freight for this service. Stop them onsentence one or two, and escort them out of the room. No discussion. Make them go.
  11. No. Witnessed "Karma" looks more like "regression to the mean" to me.
  12. So sorry for your loss and the reflective pain and emotions you are going through. I lost my last parent and my last sibling 14 years ago when I was 45. I can honestly assure you that timing passing helps. Regard the things we carry, it is a awful choice that soooo many folks choose. Adding "things undone"; we all can effort to uncarry these burdens. I have been working hard on this. Now my carry list is very small.
