Quote from: PantsNotTrousers on September 10, 2023, 04:25:20 AMHi, Half my family is from the UK the other half is from the US and I live in America, so I say pants, more than I say trousers.A bit about me:I was raised evangelicalI left the faith when I was 28ish, I'm 35 now. I still feel new to this which is weird because it's been like 6 years since I was a Christian. But idk, I'm struggling a bit.I had all the answers and I was sure of the fact there was an afterlife and what that afterlife looked like. Now I don't have answers for anything.Also, do I have to have a "purpose"? If so, how do I pick one? I just wanted to know that there were happy, fulfilled, atheists out there and that it's possible for me too so that's why I'm here. 🙂
