I was raised Catholic but admitted to myself, finally, that I am Atheist.
Why are you here?
I don't really get the opportunity to talk about being atheist because my friends and family are still quite religious. I have a lot of guilt because my parents spent a lot of money sending me to a private school for 9 years, and I haven't been able to tell them that I just don't believe in god. I'm kindof hoping this makes it easier.

Why you left your religion.
I never really believed it, even as a little girl. I was never comfortable with being Catholic. I tried other religions, I tried being agnostic, nothing fit.
When I finally came clean about the idea of god and religion being no more that bull shit, to me, I finally was happy with myself.
