Reasons Behind My Disaffection From The LDS Church : Introduction

I have decided to put a formal format into the main reasons I have decided to disaffect myself from the LDS church. As I write each section I will post it here for public comment. Some of the information is personal, but I hope to get technical help on some areas so that I might make the point without too much fluff.

Also, for reasons of this post, I was wondering if any of you have done similar things, or is your Blog or private journal where you record these things?

just put it out there, man. i would recommend staying anonymous, and not using any names. switch up the names of cities/hometowns, etc. that way you won't be held back by worrying about people finding u out- you can just let it flow. you'll end up telling every1 one day but that may be a year, two years, ten even who knows. i look forward to seeing ur posts...

Markii,

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to write as anonymously as I can, but try to keep the essence of the story to its fullest. This is very personal to me, as I'm sure you can attest, so I want it to be as real as possible.

I hope to get your comments as I go along. I hope I can get some help in explaining things better as I'm not the best writer and I tend to rattle on for a while without much point attached.

Anyway, thanks for the comment. I've seen and read through your onedudesms.wordpress.com blog for some time and you, and others, have helped me gain the courage I needed to move along with this journey. Thank you for being there and documenting your story.

I actually wrote out a whole religious autobiography and read it to a group of, like 40 people. It was very cathartic. Good luck and we're listening.

I blogged about it in my blog openly, without using names. It IS cathartic. It helped me to come to terms with what I was experiencing, especially since my husband is not a member so had no clue what it feels like to leave the church.
