I was raised in the same kind of lifestyle, where I was allowed to explore and learn and make my own decisions on the matter.

While I had the choice I also don't think I ever really did (if that makes sense) here is what I mean...


I tried being a christian, I tried being a wiccan, but I never really bought into it. Because I could never -really- bring myself to believe any of that crap was possible. I felt like I was playing in a make believe world and as a result, I felt pretty foolish. (and that's saying a lot, coming from a person who claims to be a hobbit)

I especially didn't like what christianity was making me do while being in their pretend little world. I was led to believe different kinds of people were inferior, etc (you all know the story)

So finally at the end of the day I dropped it all and went with my gut. (That being there is no god/s and that we are in this on our own together). I feel much more fulfilled as a person.

I hope that made sense. lol
