I’ve never been great at putting things into concise terms when it comes to telling a story. I can manage sometimes not to ramble, but I have an eye and a mind for details, and as a result, the details are important to me.
My story is probably not functionally different from anyone else who was raised religiously and who later stepped away from delusional thinking, but I hope that in writing this, I can offer some insight and perspectives that some of you who are just now, or just recently going through this, may not have. It’s been over twenty years since I started the process of stepping away. Those insights are probably not all that unique, for what it’s worth, but they’re mine, so I relate them. 😉
