Up to a certain point in life
I went along with the beliefs
I was raised within…
All along I sensed that
Something didn’t add up
In my small universe
What should I believe?
Were the faith of my mother
And the faith of my father
More meaningful than
Faith in myself?
I thought not…
And as it’s often said…
That’s my story and I’m
Sticking with it

      Thank you, Suzanne. We tend to want to stick with what we were brought up with…but sometimes it just can’t be. That was my experience.

        Understood. My beliefs also changed as I grew up and life happened. I would like to think I’ve changed for the better. 💕💕

        If you think for yourself and treat people with kindness, as you do, that’s a “yes”. 😉
