I don’t really have any words to express what I’m feeling but I’m going to try. Religion has caused me a lot of pain and suffering. One incident being a verbal attack from my mother for religious reasons. Another thing is me realizing I’m not a woman of faith like the church encourages woman to be. Another difficult thing is that I’ve realized the religion I’ve been raised in is not who I am. Religion has been a struggle for me for a long time and that makes it very difficult. I post often about my religious struggles on daily strength because this is the only place where I can express my struggles. I’ll admit there are times where I’ve felt like I am part of a cult.
