It has been over 3 years since I first joined Think Atheist. Back then I was a submissive Christian wife hanging on for dear life.

Reg the Fronkey Farmer cared enough to take time out of his day and be my friend. I started to learn (slowly) that my faith in God was keeping me chained in a self-perpetuating prison. I did not feel free to think for myself apart from what I was trained to think that God would want me to do.

Letting go of my faith is what enabled me to painfully but swiftly get out of a dangerous situation. Permanently. I have broken through my prison chains and ended my cycle of self-destruction. I have a bright(er) future now. Life is still hard. Very hard. But I am no longer chained to a faith that keeps me held hostage. I no longer submit to a man who abuses me, or a god that tells me I am beneath men.

I am a free woman now. In every sense of the word. I have been given a second chance at life... Because one good man cared enough to stick up for me. I am forever grateful beyond words.

Thank you Reg the Fronkey Farmer, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Good one.  We all need someone like that in our life.

Thank you very much Belle Rose. I have enjoyed every minute of our journey. I am always delighted to hear someone say that becoming an atheist has been a positive force in their life.  Once we can see through the "god delusion" it is not possible to ever be fooled by it again. You may not see all the benefits of it yet but the rewards are all yours.
