It took me a long time to become comfortable saying the word atheist. Then it took an even longer time to be comfortable calling myself an atheist. I feel like the world, or at least my surroundings, has such a negative stigma about atheism, that getting to a place where I could even consider questioning the existence of god took a long time. But life is short, and I don’t want to spend it hiding who I am. I am an atheist.
I was a Christian for a long time, a truly devoted Christian. Leaving that community for my truth was difficult, because I suddenly felt like I lost a commonality with 99% of people I knew. I started to blog hoping to hear from others who have similar stories and to feel a little less alone.
There is so much to learn, know, and celebrate in life. We shouldn’t have to hide.
This blog is a celebration of life and being proud to be who we are.
I’m 22 and just graduated from college. I work at a health center for women. I’m happily engaged and have an awesome cat named Figaro. But I’ll blab on and on about myself enough in my posts. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
