I’ve been considering going back to church. I have not made up my mind whether or not it will be “my” church that I attended for years, or a different…maybe even Johns church.
The only thing I’m “worried” about if I do go back is people thinking that it means I’m getting serious about my religion again. And, no, that wouldn’t be the case.
Some of you may be asking why I would go to church if I don’t even believe in it? Well, I don’t the person I am anymore. I’m not saying that I couldn’t change myself without religion….I’m just saying it makes it easier to have people around you that
- Aren’t bad influences *
- Are there to support you**
*This is a serious problem I have. Everyone around me is….making bad decisions in life? So with that, comes me making bad decisions in life. I believe it be VERY true that the people around you influence a person very much…which is why parents are a vital part in a childs life (yes, I know..thats completely random
**It’s hard for someone to support you in a life decision if they don’t agree with it, or they engage in the activities, etc. that you are trying to pull yourself away from. For the most part “church people” aren’t engaged in the things I’m trying to get away from. Of course…there are the “stupid” church people who just go for friends or something…and make bad life decisions also. Obviously, nobody’s perfect. When I was a “church kid” I drank alcohol all the time, cussed…but I tried to get myself out of those situations and eventually did. That’s a whole different story.
So, that’s basically all thats going on with my religious-wise at the moment. Though, I think I am leaning towards the concept of attending my boyfriends church with him…maybe it will help me understand his religion more?
