This post is mainly for our new forum visitors and members. Perhaps even those who are just lurking or visiting here but have not yet signed up. Maybe you are in the initial stages of researching and finding out the earthshattering and life changing information about the religion that you once held dear and called “the truth”.
It can be a very stressful period of time as you realise that your whole foundation has changed and that the people in your life that you call friends or family may not take kindly to the things you have discovered.
We know that these friends will quickly disappear. They will brandish us as mentally diseased apostates, they will speak ill about us behind our backs, and the friendships we thought were loyal and reliable will no longer exist.
But please be reassured that things do indeed get better! The circle of friends that I have made since waking up to the truth about the truth is amazing. The people I now call friends are genuine, sincere, and reliable people. And these are people from all over the world!
I am truly grateful for this network of friends. We keep in touch via social media, forums, and direct messages. We can all be there to support one another through the good days and bad. Not all of our conversations have to talk about a religious background - sure that has brought us together but that does not define our relationships.
Unconditional friendships and support does exist!
So if you are new here, or struggling in some way please be assured that you have genuine support and genuine friends to understand the situation you’re in and truly get what you are going through❤️
