Religious Trauma can turn the Sacred into Suffering.

I was raised an evangelical fundamentalist Baptist. As a devote teenager, I began to make plans, devoting my life to mission work seemed like the other way I could do what needed to be done on earth.

Soon after I began making those plans, I experienced a drastic and traumatic shift in my beliefs. The Paradigm that had previously upheld my reasoning of right and wrong was gone and I had to sort out for myself what I really thought about the world. I would love to hear your experience with religious trauma and share my own story as it helps you.
