    I grew up in a Christian home, and became a born again believer at 20 years old. I lost my faith a few months ago.

  1. @MOHOOn my screen it looked like a list. I guess I should have added the word "and" lol
  2. Anyone else notice a positive personality change in themselves after leaving Christianity? Our pastor always told us we should be the best worker at our job. Something about having a good testimony for Christ... I've always been a good worker, but was afraid to share my ideas (if they contradicted someone else). I didn't want to risk upsetting someone and hurt my testimony by speaking my mind. Every since I stopped believing a few months ago, I've slowly started allowing myself to become more bold. My shy, timid personality is being replaced with confidence in my ideas and abilities. It's a little scary lol, but it's great to have my voice heard!
  3. Is anyone else amazed at how clear their mind is since deconverting? When I was a Christian, I was always praying in my head, apologizing to God for thoughts that weren't Christ-like, remembering scriptures...It was exhausting! Ever since I quit believing in God, I feel so much better! Anyone else experience this?
  4. Funny thing is that is what caused me to become a more serious Christian. I grew up going to a church that mostly taught feel good, happy sermons. When I started reading the Bible for myself, I quickly discovered it was not a giant "love letter" as I had been led to believe. But instead of that realization turning me away, it drew me in deeper for years.
  5. I'm not ready to share my testimony yet, but this page has been a huge comfort during my deconversion. I just want to say how awesome it is to be free from all the guilt tied to Christianity! A Bible verse that always bothered me (as a Chrsitian) was Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I grew up in a liberal Christian home but became a fundy born again believer at 20 years old. It didn't take long after that for me to realize my life was actually much harder as a believer than it was before that. I had to feel extreme guilt over everything from my thoughts, my words, how I spent my time, how I didn't spend my time... I stuck with it for years, but it was hard. I was developing anxiety from this "light burden." While deconversion is difficult and has a lot of struggles, I must say it's a much lighter burden!
  6. @MOHO wow that's rough. I'm fortunate that my spouse also stopped believing a few months ago like I did. We are just now trying to figure out what our lives look like as unbelievers.
  7. How has your relationship with your significant other changed since your deconversion?
