You do not have to have all the answers to move forward during your faith crisis.
We want all the answers, don’t we? We want to know exactly what the ripple effect of our changing things up will look like.
We get stuck in our decisions to move on from our religious conditioning because it would be easier if we could know how everything would shake out.
If we only knew what the fallout will be (good & bad), what will happen because we are choosing to step away from the church.
You will never know the answer to this question by staying put.
Ouch. I know. It stings a little bit.
You will only find out by taking the steps to move forward, which means making decisions without knowing what will happen next.
I think we know this logically, but emotionally we think we are protecting ourselves.
Can you relate?
Can you turn this around?
You staying in a relationship, with anyone, even the church, when you really want to leave is a very uncomfortable place to be. No one likes this place.
What steps can you take today, to move you in a direction where you do not feel stuck?
Make a list. What does this look like for you? What do you want it to look like?
Will there be some uncomfortable conversations, judgments, feelings?
That is all part of it my dear. That is why it is so scary, right?
Once you can see this, that this is the only way (out) through, you can start moving forward.
This is the crux of it all. Moving forward without knowing all that is going to happen.
What does your next step look like?
