Last night I took to Twitter using the hashtag “things that led me out of my childhood faith” (#Thingsthatledmeoutofmychildhoodfaith). I wrote in response to someone else’s tweet which basically said:
People think it’s easy to leave, but they have no idea.
I thought, isn’t that the truth. Here’s a recap of my Twitter storm. In no particular order, here are some of the reasons why I left:
I left, not because I was weak or because I slipped; I left because it was an act of integrity.
If you are thinking of leaving, how much more evidence do you need? How much more can your heart bear?
[i] I use the word church even though the group I left would not use that word.
My blogs take on all topics related to recovery, including commentary on the intersection of spiritual abuse and current events.
