Fairy tales are true, not because they tell us that dragons exist;
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. ~ G. K. Chesterton
I started writing about my experiences with patriocentricity, hard-core complementarianism, and fundamentalism last year when I sought counseling for the first time. I’ve always “journaled” through the hardest times of my life, and writing, to me, is a healing balm. I started this blog as an extension of that– I had posted a few things as facebook notes, and my family and friends told me that my stories were helping them. That indicated to me that maybe my story could help people I didn’t know– people who had experienced the same things, or even people who hadn’t.
So, here I am, typing away, obsessively checking my stats every few minutes (I’m hoping that compulsive need to check wears off after a while…), and trying to help anyone who needs it. Especially myself. Hopefully I make you laugh, maybe even make you cry, but most of all I hope that you walk away from my blog encouraged, no matter what you’ve gone through– or are still going through.
