One thing that breaks my heart is when a religion teaches their members that people lose their faith because of lazy learning, a desire to sin, or that they’re being “led away” by something evil.
This song is my way of being as honest and raw as possible in expressing how complicated and painful my decision to step away was. I loved the church with my whole heart. Every decision I had made was about me being the best person I could be and about growing closer to Light. This faith crisis/trust crisis I went through was real. No one has to see it the way I see it, but please don’t dehumanize those that have chosen to leave and assume the reasons based on explanations from leaders or individuals who have never walked in the same shoes.
I’ve had so many loved ones who have chosen to trust and believe my story and what I’ve been through. Thank you for listening, supporting, and opening your hearts with unconditional love even if we’ve decided to take different paths. I love you all! ❤️
