Man, 44, Chicago, USA
Started Christian (indoctrinated), was unaware that there were religions outside of what was in the Bible until adulthood, concluded prayers were not being received in a long and traumatic process that took years. Still felt culturally and tribally Christian and forced myself to continue reverence and acceptance for it or at least the identity. Agnostic Pagan in 20s, UU in early 30s, Buddhist/toaist/pantheist/agnostic up til 40s, now primarily atheism/agnosticism. Liberal politics, some libertarian leanings.
