Well now I'm on a roll. I promise to return to regularly scheduled programming of more uplifting breakup poetry soon 😂 But also, life became much more precious to me when I realized an afterlife wasn't a given. Before, I counted on having my family for eternity. I spent countless hours effectively earning karma for the next life. I waited for everything I didn't agree with doctrinally to be explained in eternity. Now, time with my family is more treasured. I spend my time making the most of the life I know I have. And I don't accept things my conscience rejects just because an authority figure says I should.
