I am so tired of people using religion as an excuse to be stupid! I grew up with “religion” and I have had my fill. After 47 years I’m just tired of it. Just be a good person, work hard, take care of your family and STOP JUDGING OTHERS. If those who judge spent all of those hours working on themselves, things would be a lot better all the way around for everyone. Everyone does not have to believe like you to be “right”. In fact the majority of those who preach and judge are going to be dead ass shocked when they arrive at the pearly gates to see who all is there with them!
I can’t even begin to tell you all the crap I went through growing up “in the name of religion”. When I realized what a farce most of it was I was broken-hearted. It has taken a long time for me to heal and I don’t intend to ever go back to that place. Acceptance and love are the keys to happiness. When I finally embraced those two factors my life changed forever. I hope I have instilled both in my children. I grew up believing some of the strangest most ridiculous things and I am sad I missed out on years of knowing “truth”. Don’t get me wrong, I had a great life although it be a tinted life. I was lead to believe because I was adopted I should be “honored” to be taken into such a religious family when in the end it got me no where. Very few of that family are still a part of my life. It is very sad but at the same time it is freeing in a lot of ways.
I don’t care what you’ve done, how you’ve done it etc. It’s ok. Your life will go on and you will find your own peace. I have to guard my heart, it is fragile and for years I let it be thrown around and stepped on. As an adult I have chosen to take better care of it. My love is real, it has passion and it is forever. I may not do, say or act exactly like one thinks I should. But I’m OK with that. I’m me and I like me, and in the end, that’s what matters.
