I'm agnostic, and don't feel like I'm missing out on anything, but I do see the value in the sense of community that church offers. I've been meaning to check out one of the local Unitarian Universalist churches for, uh, a really long time now, but it hasn't been enough of a burning desire that I've bothered with it so far. My dd likes to go to church with my parents sometimes, who are Catholic, and I'm ok with that but I'd like to give her her own church experience with values more in line with those of dh and me.
I sometimes wish it was possible for me to believe in God or a higher being. It can get lonely when all you have to rely on is yourself.
But I don't feel like my life is missing anything.
Quoting Sly Saffy:" I sometimes wish it was possible for me to believe in God or a higher being. It can get lonely when all you have to rely on is yourself. But I don't feel like my life is missing anything."
I feel like that too, but knowing that I think it's all bs doesn't work for me, lol.
Quoting Bosco123:" Yeah, that's also making me feel like a piece of shit because I don't feel that way. Even though I love my kid (and husband) more than anything, I just don't feel complete in general."
But how we feel personally is different from one person to the next. kwim? So what completes me may not complete another person and there is nothing wrong with that at all.
Its funny cause my kids are religious, they go to church and love it. I left it up to them to believe in whatever they want to believe in. They are Catholic.
One goes to church with her Grandma, (dads mom) dad is not in her life.
My other daughter (different dad) goes with her Grandma (dads mom)
My youngest same dad as my middle dd, has not gone yet, too young to decide if its for her. I grew up with a different religion altogether, but went agnostic in my early teens.
I'm not religious but I do like the idea of heaven & angels watching over us ect.... but do I believe in god. No... you can always do volunteer work at a food bank at a church or something like that, then your still involved & helping out your community, but not involved in something that's necessarily religious based, kwim. Or have you looked into other types of religions
