Man Of Steel - UK Premiere (June 12, 2013)
I never quite know what to scribble down here. Well, this blog is a giant file cabinet of what spirals through my train of thoughts. Keep up! :)

I realize this truth more and more every single day: I am a much better human being without religion.
I wouldn’t say that I am an atheist. I do think there is something bigger out there; I just don’t know if that’s god or somebody/thing else.
As terrible as [those years] were for my family and I, today, I am a tiny bit glad they happened. I know I can say this because today, my life is in a much happier place than I ever really thought to be feasible. I am thankful. I have learned my biggest life lessons and for a long time, I was purely resentful of those years. Of course, I still hate that all of that transpired and I still harbor a lot of disgust toward some people, but I think I can honestly move forward with my life now.
Until today, I thought my life would be forever dictated by THAT.
No. I can make my own future and for that realization, I have a lot to be grateful for.
I also think that if someone were to question me about why I no longer identify myself as a Christian, I would be able to speak coherently. It would be a lengthy story, but I think I would be able to tell it without becoming overly emotional.
I do think time heals. I also believe that it is very important to keep moving as time goes by…especially when you are scared, discouraged, unsure, and angry. I’m happy that I did. People are a lot more resilient than you think. you are your own savior. I can’t believe it took me this long to understand that.
Sorry this is so ramble-y. But obviously, I’ve been thinking quite a lot…
