I left the LDS church 7 years ago. In that time I have become my genuine self, made lasting and beautiful friendships with people who love me unconditionally, gotten married to the love of my life, and had a gorgeous and healthy child. I don’t judge others as harshly as I used to (if at all in most cases) because I don’t see the point. I know I’m not going to own my own planet someday in the next life and because of that knowledge I am finally able to fully appreciate life for what it is: my one and only chance to love, experience, and create. My life is so much better and I am so much happier!
