I grew up in a highly religious family. I still live with my parents. I am not saying religion is bad. Personal beliefs are essential to who we are and our survival. However, it becomes bad when one takes it to an unhealthy level. For example, when one attempts to manipulate his or her loved ones by using holy Scripture. My parents are guilty of this. Therefore, I find myself torn. When I speak with my religious or something spiritual friends, I get angry. For no reason at all, I just feel so bitter. It's not them, its not God, its not the church. It's stupid idiots who are self righteous and manipulative. Don't get me wrong. I am a believer. O have nothing wrong with God, the Bible, or religion in general. However, I have become extremely skeptical and bitter towards religion in general. It's tearing me apart. I don't know what I believe anymore. It hurts me deeply and besides possibly therapy, I don't know what to do.
If you want to talk about this I am cool with it. Thanks for reading.
