When Religious Abuse leads to Religious Deconstruction and Spiritual Evolution
Religious abuse has changed everything for you. What you thought you could trust, no longer feels safe. For this reason, you find yourself wondering what was true. Despite all of the hurt and betrayal, there are parts of you that still miss what used to feel so secure.
Whether deconstructing your faith or embarking on a spiritual evolution this challenges the core of your beliefs. Questioning your beliefs takes courage. As a result, detaching from them can be life-shattering. You may find yourself doubting, angry, hurt, scared, and alone.
According to DareToDoubt.org, 6 in 10 millennials will leave their faith. The religiously unaffiliated is the largest growing group in America. 78% of those who responded ‘None’ to the question of religious affiliation were raised religious.
Leaving your faith may make you feel isolated, or lonely. First thing to remember, you are not alone.
