I'm new to the forum and atheism.
Long story short, I was raised Christian, but not in an "into it" family. My skepticism kept knocking holes into my already shaky, at best, faith. I finally embraced separating myself from christianity and then recently finally accepted myself as an atheist sorta kinda. I still have my values and morals and I believe I can keep and honor them without a religion as a crutch.

Welcome. I think you'll discover most of us here to have the finest, most upstanding, ethical and altruistic morals you'll ever find anywhere making us the envy of the religious!

Atheism says nothing about values or morals, so whether you're a psychopath or "saint", you can still add that "atheist" label to the long list of labels that makes up the person that you are.
