Getting free of religion is fantastic, isn’t it? Ever since I did, I continue to grow in excitement about life and its changes. I have learned to laugh easily. Now I am ready for a little traveling and a lot of new adventures. I love being around any bodies of water and hiking is amazing in the lush forests of Oregon.

Besides just doing things for fun, I enjoy working on household projects and problem solving. But they are much more fun when collaborating with another mind. Time spent with like minds is always richer.

I am happy and comfortable with me, so I am NOT desperate for a serious relationship! I am starting over, so if you want someone who already knows just what they want, it's not me, lol.

If you have been religious, how has being free of it affected your life?

Sorry not sorry
thislife comments on Jul 1, 2018:
I believed for decades. It takes a lot of work and lying to yourself to believe irrational teachings. When I quit trying to believe, it was like stepping into fresh air. I will never look back.
