Mother Who Knows

All of the above! What great responses!
I love my children and grandchildren unconditionally. No, Russell Nelson, unconditional love is NOT "anti-Christ."
What a relief it was, when I realized that the racism my TBM parents and their cult taught me was finally--just, GONE! I felt a lightness in my heart. Like the one poster said, I stopped judging people.
With therapy, I got over my PTSD, caused by childhood abuse, and my 14 months of beatings from my temple ex-husband.
I'm still recovering my self-esteem
I'm enjoying being a single divorced working mother, and I'm no longer ashamed that I had to make my own living and support my children on my own. The truth is, that I succeeded in doing so. (From the Mormons I never asked for welfare, and I got nothing but marginalization and jealousy from them. The 10% raise is greatly appreciated.
I'm free! My family and I are closer than ever! If I had kept on forcing them to go to church, they probably would have rebelled, and it would have caused a wall between us. All my children live within a few blocks from me, and I get to see my grandchildren whenever I want to.
I broke the cycle of abuse! I put an end to the Mormon dysfunction which haunted my family, through the generations, beginning with my first ancestors, who joined their neighbor JS's polygamous cult. It ended with me!
I finally have answers! I know that Mormonism is a hoax cult! What a relief! I don't have to do anything against my own scruples, against my instincts, against what I know is the Truth. I don't have to be bored anymore, or sickened by the temple rituals.
My life doesn't have to be focused on dying and the afterlife, anymore. I can live and breathe. IMO, that leads to good health and vigor.
I have God back! The God of the Universe, who is Love.
Most of all, in this blessed Christmas Season:
I didn't have to go to the Ward Christmas party tonight!!!
Man is that he might have joy! No more Sunday depression!
