most of these oddly apply to how atheists are often thought of and treated… not to be selfish like i’m the only person who is fucking internally tortured, and i might be slightly hypocritical in saying it…
But, the reason i have this blog is because there is literally nowhere else on the internet or in my life where i can be more open about how i feel, and the majority of my friends hardly know about it. I.E i can’t be open to the majority of my friends about my spiritual and political views.
the thing is, i am very aware in my life that i am walking on eggshells when talking to alot of people.
I say things like “i’m a secular humanist,” or “im a secularist,” instead of “i’m an atheist” because of the way it comes off.
i choose my words very carefully because i know how they sound.
it’s stupid, i know, but i prefer to have a social life and tread on eggshells then to be entirely open and hated by more people.
I hate how any fucking religion can be totally open like “i’m jewish”, “i’m christian”, “i’m into spirituality,” but i can’t fucking do that because people are like *ghasp* “you don’t think there is ANY supernatural? like, omg you must live a sad and lonely life!”
:P anyways, my thoughts.
